Do you know you have a fake item in your shopping cart?
In a recent search and study, it is found that one out of every five products is counterfeit. Yes, you heard it true. All the renowned e-commerce company like Amazon, Flipkart, or Snapdeal hawking fake products.
In the past six months 20-22% of the products received by the customers were found to be either defected or simulated.
@AmazonHelp Thanksgiving will mark 20 years of me being an Amazon customer. And I’m getting to the point where I don’t like using Amazon anymore. Useless answers on Q&A, fake reviews, sellers listing products as “Amazon’s Choice” with unrelated reviews.

I believe amongst all E Comm companies, @Flipkart is worst. Fake products, delayed deliveries and worst is their return policy. With this approach, you can never be an Amazon, no matter how many Walmarts are knocking on your door @_sachinbansal

🤬 We need to trust reviews! People take notice of personal recommendations and, again, it makes you wonder if companies do actually respect their customers who are spending hard earned money 🔗 https://t.co/5lcVpoLpq0 #fakenews #reviews #recommendations #fake #products

Amazon is the largest seller of clone/fake/ counterfeit products on earth. China is becoming wealthy from Amazon alone!

@AmazonHelp @amazon I’m getting really tired of all these products with mostly fake 5-star reviews on #Amazon. I got duped again into buying something with “stellar reviews” only to find out they are mostly fake. Then I can’t post a real review to help people! #FakeReviews pic.twitter.com/28E4BpYNgO

Local Circles, a community network that focuses on the governance and daily life took a survey in which the people were asked which e-commerce website stupefied them by delivering sham products. Where the end result left everyone in stun, according to that survey 37% Snapdeal products were counterfeit, 22% of Flipkart, and 20% of Amazon.
Sale of counterfeit products still remains a significant problem for online shoppers across many ecommerce sites https://t.co/Wt7G8vZ2kp

From the tweets you can have a glance upon the concreteness of the survey by the users

I ordered an Iphone 6s but received a fake power bank inside a different mobile box. I got the product delivered on 21st October 2018 at 7.30pm.
As per Flipkart policy we cannot open any product before it is delivered.
I have lodged a complaint but no response yet. pic.twitter.com/ghAOrJK9wt
