I do not wish to start an argument but I bet many folks here would agree that the initials WM are who started this downward spiral to total China dependence in this country.
Whew. Sorry about the confusion.There for a microsecond I thought you meant Wreckerman (WM) then I remembered everyone slamming Walmart.
Cheap knockoff parts are bad enough but you have to think back in the last two years the pet food that killed so many pets and crippled others and the kids toys with lead in them as well.
no, you can blame capatalism for WM. the free people and desire for less expensive goods are what has lead to WM's success.
however, the willful product infiltration is solely on the shoulders of China. last i checked, WM sells alternative brands, not knock-offs relabled as name-brands. those are two completely seperate discussions and only one of them has a place in this thread.
i, too, would be devistated if i payed at or near full-price for an ARB and found out it was an imposter. mainly because there would be nothing you could do at that point - everyone would claim ignorance and you'd be out money and have a broken locker.
Unforgiven,No, you have missed the point.
It's about CRIMINALS selling clones that are labeled as the original.
It's not about cheap customers. It's about knowingly fraudulent Chinese companies criminally counterfeiting brand-name goods. The consumer didn't choose the Chinese product. They unknowingly are the victim of fraud.
That's why I said I would pay more than fair market to ensure the product I receive is the true product, not a repackaged, fraudulent, Chinese clone.
