Dodgy Naim Clone on eBay

@Naim.Marketing

I don’t think anybody on here would be fooled.

I’ve posted in Padded Cell so I could provide the link.

Brilliant. Not a current product, but the circuitboard is dated 2021 01 19, and has Chinese characters on it. Definitely the real deal.

To be fair the guy is not breaking any eBay rules regarding descriptions. Caveat emptor!

@Tony it does have a naim logo on the board!

Granted. Specks on, now that’s some serious copyright issue.

These are nothing new.

Certainly well discussed before…

I have made an exception and allowed the bay link. I trust nobody here would be daft enough to purchase such a thing.

It’s a clear breach of trademark, passing something off as Naim. I have reported it to eBay, as I’m sure some of you have already done so as well.

I know Naim take these things very seriously, as they should, and Clare and the team work hard to get such things removed, but I guess its a little bit like whack-a-mole at times…

An apt description, Richard! We are registered with eBay’s VeRo program to counteract fakes/copyright infringement, so will flag the listing.

Please all continue to share and report fakes as you see them. Thanks!

The seller has a few other listings too. Phono Boards etc

There seem to be quite a few phishing ads on eBay (there were 4 Moto Guzzi ones yesterday) or ads that seem fake.

It’s stopping me from buying anything of value unless I could go and collect it, if that were possible.

There’s a 500 dr that keeps appearing but the pic is certainly not a 500!

What, a Moto Guzzi 500DR?
Sounds pokey!

! Nap500 dr but pic is XP’s or something… very short listing times too

The problem is getting a long enough Powerline to make it a viable form of transport.
