Welcome to the UK Anti Piracy Counterfeit
Appliances, Fake Appliances and Replica Appliances page.
Genuine - legitimate appliances manufacturers
spend years and
considerable amounts of money developing
products, improving manufacturing processes,
improving design features, setting up chains of
reputable dealers and repair - service agents and building a
reputation for high end quality Appliances.
Fake appliances - Counterfeit Appliances
are usually manufactured from cheap materials,
using inferior processes and sub-standard
components. Every counterfeit appliance which we
have seen is of far lower quality than the
original. Many counterfeit appliances can best be described as "a
waste of money" and some fake appliances are
downright dangerous and even life threatening.
Additionally; genuine appliances manufacturers and
authorised agents spend years building good
reputations and nurturing a good name.
Counterfeit appliances can be considered to be
"tat". They are usually either cheap and
nasty copies of quality brands or they are of a
similar type and simply bear the name of a
quality brand in order to con potential buyers
into believing that they are buying a genuine -
appliances use sub standard components; they are
not be as reliable as a genuine appliance, they
will usually not perform as well as an original
appliance whilst the after sales service and -
or guarantee will not be to the same standard as
a genuine appliance.
Please also be aware
that fake spares are now being being fitted during repairs or
service. There are numerous examples of fake
parts knowingly being used during a repair to
either save costs (the savings may or may not be
passed on to the end user), or unknowingly -
where fake appliance parts are labeled as being
genuine appliance parts.

trend for illegal vendors to pretend to be authorised
genuine appliance agents and appliance dealers. They then sell
counterfeit appliances and fake appliances to customers.
The customer naturally believes that they have
bought a genuine appliances and blames the legitimate
manufacturer (often via online forums and also
by "word of mouth"). This phenomenon can have
devastating repercussions for the genuine
manufacturer and can ruin a company's good name.
