I bought a QcK mousepad on Amazon the other day from what I thought was 5 star average seller, where the price was on average with the others, and there seemed to be nothing fishy about it. Until my package arrived from China and it literally reeks of a disgusting fish smell. Turns out Amazon had my order fulfilled using a different marketplace seller. So if buying from Amazon, be sure to double-check that your product is coming from a reputable vendor on Amazon. Honestly I never knew that fakes being sold on Amazon was a common thing so that's why I never checked in the first place. I thought that fakes were common on sites along the lines of Ebay and less..."official" seeming sites.

was this a team / game qck ? i find those have the most counterfeit versions, there's lots on amazon. it even happened to me, they changed the listing after I bought one and I got a 9"x6" fnatic qck mouse pad that look liked it was printed like a fake chinese pokemon card
