    Well I have been looking into selling outter box cases for Iphone 5G. I hear though they are one of the biggest Attention products that brings notice to your account and perhaps have you account banned for selling fakes.

    my question is, if you ebay search "outter Box Iphone 5G" How many sellers are from china and Japan. Why don't there ads get removed or V*R*

    If it's not allowed to sell fakes I think that should be for everyone..

    I'll tell you my theories about that and you decide which one to believe.
    1. Outterbox is made in china, so they got the real ones for cheap.
    2. They don't mention "Outterbox" anywhere.
    3. They mention that these cases are fake.
    4. They listings are new and eBay still didn't received report about their fakes.

    Although I don't think Outterbox is part of vero so it's legit to sell fakes if you mention they are fake/tpu/oem.

    but If I purchase the boxs from CHINA do you think I would be fine if I sold them for retailer price how others are selling them??

    your listing can be shutdown when a competitor reports you, i've done that when i was selling electric cigarets. until they disallowed to sell them.

    make a legit price, almost same as authentics, take pictures of the item, barcode, everything that makes it look like original, don't dropship, report fakes (low prices)
