How to spot a fake GHD straightener

Fake copies of Microsoft Office, operating systems, memory cards and flash drives, fake designer clothing... anything of that nature. At any given time TM offers thousands of fake itmes which breach their terms & conditions... and often do little about the problem. This is the place to discuss the issue.

By the looks of things I have been scammed by this site http://www.ghd-hair.co.nz" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; the payment for them was through http://www.visamasterpay.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; which it seems is dodgy also.

Was completely blinded by thinking how happy my partner was going to be with me for getting the Ghd's she has wanted for so long. I also knew nothing about the exclusiveness of Ghd straighteners and the money it seems people are making selling knockoffs or not sending anything at all.

Looks like a refund through either visamasterpay or ghd-hair will never happen so has anyone at all had any success getting a refund through their credit card provider?

Unfortunately NZ's domain registration system allows anyone to pick up a
NZ domain. In this case the criminals are in Beijing.

Here's a list of all websites hosting on the same server. They'll all be selling fake GHDs I assume. If you paid by Credit Card Alesha, see about having reversing the charges, though I don't know if that's possible if counterfeit goods are received. Your Credit Card provider would be able to tell you.
