Fake everything so -- -- actually one of the top counterfeit products and agrees with us is important for consumers.
It's you know we talked about the -- sobs about 750000.
Is not bad jobs -- for here so can you guess that these two it's what is the real.
Which is the real boot you know what I got two daughters at home -- picked him up a million times that's the real well you're right you got it right here.
-- having the folks at home to the -- -- into other couple different things first of all in and it's kind of hard to see but if you look at the stitching really closely you'll be able to tell.
Also just from the feel that overall this quality of that and the real ones will actually -- you can kind of see -- -- flexes like us.
Whereas but not cops don't really do anything -- -- -- you mentioned the states you know I think we've got a close -- of stitching -- -- -- -- boot screen and we are you content you can -- the sitting right there and just the quality of the other -- usually it's synthetic materials and thanks let's talk person is vs you'll see lots of the is knocked off on the streets and we have a vacancy none of them -- Right and none of the -- that you think you know here's the deal at -- see it and it seems like it's you get to be true it probably is -- some action here I from a reputable -- sent.

Okay when you well look for diamonds you just taught me something really important -- is a gigantic diamond.
Take -- game in your hand breathe on it.
And it's it's odd that it's foggy it's that that's not a real and if they don't play if you do the right tests on -- and -- kind of -- up like that that's an an authentic diamond.
Another thing that you can do is this you know obviously anytime that you're shopping for something expensive like that.
Get that certificate of authenticity we obviously don't -- -- for this but got something to walk out on and never trusted just because it came in a blue box that it's actually coming from there.
Now these are three boxes that look like they're from the manufacture.
But this is fake perfume you say because they -- loose cellophane and Scotch tape on the top.
Right typically you don't want something -- you're getting it from an authentic -- -- and that's the real deal this has probably been watered down.
But you definitely don't want the Scott sip on a topless for something up there you often don't want the testers this is actually not supposed to be for sale but it's something that we found out -- -- -- -- in Los Angeles -- has so you just definitely -- suit against shop at the reputable march -- -- -- -- -- -- there check the packaging and -- should be given.
Good quality real quickly one of these is a fake Mac brush can I can't tell what the way you can tell with the Mac -- as a particular and with must make a -- is as authentic ones we'll have the longer handles.
But overall you just feel the quality of it as well let me not something that you would have to do is to sort of feeling up but again and good -- -- will cost you about twenty dollars or so.
This thing except that comes and think whether that is an insulin and acumen -- it has -- -- -- it looks like it's real but if you feel the quality of it you'll know that it's not all good advice and by the way regain its gonna be back with us tomorrow with more consumer to have thanks so much for having fantastic.
