Beware of Fake Fumoto Valves
Recently we have noticed an uptick in counterfeit Fumoto valves available for purchase on Amazon and eBay.
We strongly recommend against purchasing these products as we can not guarantee their quality and craftsmanship. We can not warranty any products that were manufactured elsewhere. In addition, these products violate our three-dimensional trademark design registration which makes the sale of them illegal in the United States.
These listings can be slightly difficult to identify as they resemble our listings and they use our item names. These listings will also include fake Fumoto accessories such as the LC-10.
How to determine if a valve is fake?
- Most of the time these products will not include the Fumoto Logo.
- The listings will have different brand names. Ex: Aramox, DJDK, BTIHCEUOT, and KIMISS
- Authentic Fumoto valves are manufactured exclusively in Japan. If a product lists that it was manufactured elsewhere it is a fake.
- The prices on these listings will be significantly lower than all other sellers.
This is an example of a counterfeit listing on Amazon:
Products offered for sale on Amazon must be authentic. The sale of counterfeit products is strictly prohibited. Failure to abide by this policy may result in loss of selling privileges so if you come across suspicious Fumoto listing please let us know so we can take actions right away.
