Counterfeit Amazon

More than 90% of ‘genuine’ Apple chargers & cables sold on Amazon are fake, says Apple. Finally. Sold “Direct from Amazon” mind you.

Apple is suing the manufacturer but, curiously, not Amazon. I wonder if that settlement will be out of court — and not necessarily monetary. This has been going on for a long time…

I do hope Amazon will pay for this — one way or another. They ripped off a lot of people.

Minor nitpick: the "90%" figure appears to refer to items sold by other sellers but "fulfilled by" Amazon. Apple has found that some items sold directly by Amazon are counterfeit, but the number of these doesn't apper to have been disclosed.

It is, of course, distressing either way.

Good catch! I'd misread the article, thought 90% applied to Amazon sourced.
