This whole "real vs fake" thing you have going on here causes me a considerable amount of trouble.
It's so normal to buy fake stuff that you forget…technically, it's illegal.
So when you buy a phone from one of those places and it breaks, nobody cares.
Nor are they surprised.
And what can you do?
No such thing as consumer rights after you buy from an illegal business, right?*
So if you're smart (and morally upright ^.^), you spend the extra money and buy the real thing.
I bought a genuine DVD in a proper shop.
Support the local industry n all that.
But when I unwrapped it and looked at the disk;
"ALLRIGHTS RESERVED UNAUTHORIZED BROADING, PUBLIC PERFORMANDE, COPYING, RE-CORDING, HIRING OR RENTAL IN ANY MANNER WHATS EVER OF THIS RECORDING WILL CONSTITUTE ON INFRINGEMENT OF COPYRIGHT"
So are you real or not?
What to do when the original is as questionable as the fake one??
* turns out though, an annoying level of persistence and a pitiable face go a long way. 11 days and 3 phone handsets later, I got what I came for. Winner! Kinda… : /
