1. Check to see what the logo looks like on a gadget.
Fake gadgets are not just of poor quality, but they can even be dangerous because they don’t go through the right testing or certification. But in case if you’re in a situation where you don’t know if you have a fake or an original, here are some tips.
2. Check the metal and the sound on expensive watches.
Flea markets can be a great place to find rare luxurious watches. But it’s important to know how to detect frauds.
3. Check the stitching on clothes and shoes.
The quality of original and expensive items also differ. The stitching will be much cleaner and tighter on authentic items, unlike their counterparts. Original clothing and shoes often have more stitches per square inch. The lines won’t be as straight either because they likely use less material as it costs less.

Contreifet cosmetics are no joke! That’s because we use these products on our bodies so we’d like to know that everything is tested and certified safe. Here are some tips that can help you to avoid purchasing fakes:

If you want to buy a jacket, coat, or trenchcoat, take a look at the buttons inside and out. Fine brands will have good quality plastic with the company’s name engraved.

7. Check the quality of the screen when shopping for smartphones.
Fakes can look incredibly professional and sometimes it’s difficult to find differences between them and original iPhones. But still, it’s possible when you do the following:
7. Download a special app for spotting fakes.
If you decide to take your fraud search to the next level, you can upload a special app that recognizes fake clothes, shoes, and accessories. This way, when you’re buying stuff from different stores, it will help you to avoid scams and save money.
The app detects small details like in the picture above. For example, “the peak” of the tongue is slightly elongated compared to the authentic pair.
