    I purchased what I thought to be a genuine Lunatik Taktik case on eBay. It's white with a yellow bumper. Well I tired of the case quickly and went back to my Otterbox Defender.

    Funny thing is, I listed it for auction on eBay today and they cancelled it due to fraud. I now have a fraud flag on my account. Sucks!

    So anyway, just a warning to you all. Make sure you get genuine products when you purchase from a stranger on eBay or Craigslist. If it looks like a limited edition, then it's probably a fake.

    That does suck! Why don't you e-mail eBay and tell them they let it go through the first time (when you purchased it), so the only ones they have to blame are themselves for not catching it the first time around!

    ...At least try to get a fraud flag on the person who sold it to you!

    How did they determine it was a fraudulent auction listing?
    Never heard of them doing that.
    There is the Vero program, wherein certain brand names are protected and those listings will be removed....

    Yeah they mentioned vero in the email. I think the company that makes Lunatik may have spotted it.

    I would raise a stink as well since you originally bought it on eBay.

    Look at the email again, find the offending "brand" and relist item without that in the title...

    Yeah I thought about that. I won't get as much for it though. I may just keep it.

    Yeah, I once bought a knock off item on eBay. You must read the entire item description.
    That being said, they were obviously correct to remove your listing since it is a fake.
    Another lesson is to not try and pass off an item as real when you know it is fake. Someone else would feel the same way you do now.

    I would never knowingly sell a fake and call it real.
