Thread: Warning: Fake Schuberth Helmet site

  1. #31

    Fake Schubert

    Well I just joined this forum only to let you all know these fake Schubert helmets are not even fake.
    what you receive is a $20 dollar Chinese mopped helmet, then you get the go around e mail answers of sorry checking with shipping company, lets us verify , we made a mistake will correct etc etc etc.
    be aware.

    How does Post #29 ("I have seen both side-by-side, and cannot tell a bit of difference.") square with Post #31?

    Well I was hopeful of something good , really hoping for something looking like a Schubert and the challenge to compared to my real Schubert, but this is what I got.

    A simple cell phone photo of the helmet he received would be of interest..

    I saw what was supposedly received from China, but I didn't do the order nor receive it. Now, based on the most recent report, I'm beginning to question if my fellow club member was too embarrassed to admit that he got ripped off, and bought a genuine Schuberth and claimed it was the Chinese one? I really don't know.

    Wish I had seen this earlier. Thought I was getting a great deal on a new face shield and pin lock for my C3 Pro. Received a package at the post office today. It originated from China and the contents were very cheap, very poor imitation. Just junk. Will contact my CC company.

    If it seems to good to be true - it is. If it seems like a super deal, it probably isn't. If we all (me too) were not so darn cheap we might do better in our purchases. YMMV.

    Same type of fraud (I think) but with Held Gloves.

    Also, I wonder from which website they copied this:

    I'm pretty sure I'm going through the same thing but with HELD Gloves.

    Looks like a similar site I tried to buy HELD gloves on because they were half price.

    Is it possible all of this could have been avoided if you went to your local retailer to buy your new helmet? I'm sure he/she would have appreciated the business to help him/her stay in business.
