Apparently they first got into trouble by selling fake Otterbox cases, then expanded their counterfeit lineup. I hate crooks.

They will register fine. It is if you ever have the need for any warranty work is where a red flag could or could not pose an issue.

I can agree it's a joke, but it's a "joke" that dealers have to contend with. The interstate sales tax is being worked on in various ways and will upset some when it comes about. The only way the mfgs are going to enforce the MAP pricing is to allow only dealers to carry their product, or they could set prices high enough that non dealers couldn't discount or wouldn't be worth it in $$'s to sell the item,then could give the dealers an incentive on the back side after the sell. As long as "business" can order from a jobber, there will be non dealers cutting prices. As a dealer, we can't afford to be "cut off" from shipments of a product.

I tried to contact them multiple times with no response, my bank disputed the charge and I have all my money back, so it's all good on my end. Kind of a shame they couldn't be content making money honestly, my past experience with them was just fine. Oh well.....
