Fake, Counterfeit, Fraud, LEGO

Fake LEGO Ninjago set

One example of fake LEGO. “Bele” making people think they are buying real Ninjago set.

Now, when I say fake, I do not mean Mega Blocks, K’Nex, Tente, or any other legitimate brand. I mean those who make sets that seem like actual LEGO. The ones who want you to think it is REAL LEGO, when it isn’t!

Recently, I had been tricked into buying a similar set, though I Should have known better! Which is why I am making this post. So you won’t get confused when you’re out buying LEGO.

Always look for the LEGO logo, If the box doesn’t have it. THEN IT IS NOT LEGO! So if you are buying Online, make sure they have a picture where you can see it, and that the pictures aren’t copied from somewhere.

Also, check the Box to see if it looks like a sloppy copy of a LEGO set, LEGO always has very good quality and if the pictures looks slanted then it might be a fake. If the package is transparent, check out the bricks. Sometime fake Minifig faces are too high, at an angle, or even upside down!

(Another post about fake LEGO: mybrickstore.blogspot.com/2014/01/how-to-differentiate-original-with.html)

LEGO encourages anyone who sees a fake LEGO list page on eBay & Amazon to contact them and report the link to them and they will take action in order to remove it.

Make sure everyone who buys LEGO for you or themselves knows about the possibility of Fakes, with the Internet it makes it a lot easier to make a fake. and to steal your money!
