On the Raspberry Pi Blog, the Raspberry Pi Foundation have discovered Chinese Scammers selling fake versions of the official Raspberry Pi Case. I checked mine, and phew, I have not got a fake, but if you are buying the case from a dodgy-looking shop, the blog post is worth reading to make sure you are buying the real case.
A snippet from the blog post:
We managed to get our hands on a sample through a proxy pretending to be a Pi shop, and we have some pictures so you can see what the differences are and ensure that you have the genuine article. The fake cases are not as well made as the real thing, and they also deprive us of some much-needed charitable income. As you probably know, the Raspberry Pi Foundation is a charity. All the money we make from selling computers, cases, cameras, and other products goes straight into our charitable fund to train teachers, provide free learning resources, teach kids, help build the foundations of digital making in schools, and much more.
Just make sure you don’t get your hands on a fake!
