How do you protect yourself?
Now the biggest question is that how can the general public protect itself from such fake products..? For this, it is advised by experts that you look for high quality material. Pay attention to the details written on the product. Pay attention to the product packaging and logo. Observe the color carefully. If you find the product lighter than the information given, then it may be fake. Check the weight of that particular product from the official website on the internet. Also, even if it smells bad, it could be a fake as paint might have been pasted on the product. If buying online, check reputation of the seller by reading customer reviews. To identify the Authorized Seller, try to see its Authorized Retailer/Dealer Certificate.
