Are You Selling Fake i Phone Otterbox Cases?

Be careful when buying OtterBox Defender cases to resell on eBay. iPhone accessories have fallen the way of designer handbags, designer jeans, and designer sunglasses in that they are being cheaply reproduced and sold as "authentic." You want to be especially careful of buying fakes when shopping at garage sales, flea markets, thrift stores, or selling items on consignment for other people. If  you are caught by eBay selling a counterfeit item like this, you can be suspended. eBay's Vero program is watching so be very careful to authenticate easily faked items like designer handbags, jeans, sunglasses, perfumes, and Apple devices and accessories.
