OMGHi2U More Fake Parts alert. Kartboy Knobs from Singapore

Looks like some guy in Singapore is selling "kartboy" shift knobs. These are NOT our parts.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Brand...Q5fAccessories


This would also explain why i've gotten a bunch of emails for "extra" logos in the past few weeks.


We will now require a copy of the invoice showing that you purchased a real KB knob (from any US dealer) before i will send a replacement logo.

looks like i must make some quality parts if i get knocked off about once a year...

Tom

Sorry to hear about this Tom!

You make amazing products, so it only makes sense why people start knocking it off.

We might be able to work something out. I just dont see any other real way at the moment to keep people from asking for free logos to make the knockoffs having the logos.
Dealing with Ebay right now.

It's a completely understandable/reasonable policy given the circumstances.

X2... Good luck. I hate to see a genuine part get undercut by some foreign Ebay entity.
