Does Amazon sell original products?
Yes, Amazon sell their own brands like Amazon Basics, Amazon Echo, Amazon Prime Products etc. Now, sellers can sell anything they want on Amazon, its the SELLERS’ RESPONSIBILITY THAT THEY SELL GENUINE PRODUCTS, HOWEVER SO MANY PRODUCTS ARE COPIES OR DUPLICATES SOLD AT THE DIRT CHEAP PRICES.
Why does Amazon sell fake products?
The one that allows Amazon to be “exempt from prosecution” because they only “import, warehouse, and ship” the counterfeits for the real “sellers”. The law allows Amazon to claim it doesn’t “sell” anything… Just because Amazon isn’t responsible for it doesn’t mean the 3PS can get away with it.
How do you avoid fake items on Amazon?
But that’s not all, fake product reviews, payment scams and illegitimate sellers are also something buyers should look out for.
Here are 5 things to look out for:

- Have a look at the seller reviews.
- Go for a secure payment.
Does Amazon sell fake watches?
Watches sold by Amazon are not fake. Watches sold by independent merchants operating on the Amazon market-place are really, really, really not going to be fakes, but you never know.
