Really good fake Scotty Cameron's flooding the market.


Recommended Posts

Just a warning, there are really good quality fake scotty's being sold on eBay. If their homeland is China and are shipping from Georgia, DO NOT BUY!! These sellers have a buy it now price of $259.99.

When I mean high quality fakes, I mean really good quality. These putters have the mill lines on the back, the gray SKU sticker, and the shaft sticker is spot on and facing the back like the authentic ones.

The one thing that raised any suspicions, was the head cover they send was definitely a knock off, and when I asked about it, they said they bought it from a stores display rack, and they replaced the putter with a headcover they got on ebay, which I believed since even the guys at the PGA superstore said it looked legit.

The only way I fold out it was fake, was when I bought another scotty from the same buyer because it was such a good deal, (and the first the first one looked 100% legit) was when I

7HAR75WZWG1K.jpg received the same bad knockoff headcover. That's when I compared the 2 and realized they had the same exact serial number!!

Just be careful buying scotty's.

OP -- Thanks for also pointing out the GIV-AWAYS to the fake-ness. Too often people just post "100% fake" with regard to someone's questionable putter, and never offer why they believe it to be fake. I've always thought we could all -- at least I could -- learn something by being shown what the tell tale signs are.

This is (was?) the eBay seller: ix_make9965. I reported this seller yesterday and he is now gone from eBay as are all of his listings. If they have a lot of fakes to unload they will probably reappear using another name.

I used to buy and sell a lot of Scottys on eBay and had pretty good luck. I've probably owned over 100 Scottys and only bought one fake. I don't do it anymore because there are just too many fakes out there and I'm not enough of an expert to tell the difference by just looking at pictures.

If it appears to be too good to be true it probably is.....

This all day...fastest way to tell is if the head is wrapped in plastic...Cameron does not do this.

there are some asian collectors that do this on their own to preserve it/display it that way. more than likely, yes it will be fake if it's wrapped but that's not always 100% the case. obviously it is in this one.

9GHCO1MMBPO5.jpegAre you sure the one you marked as real is actually real? It doesn’t look like the one I have. And the stitching looks different too. What’s with the stitch going from the “d” in “milleD” all the way to the top of the cover?

Pulled from the SC site. Maybe yours is a different year. I’m no expert.

As honorable of intentions you may have, It doesn't really matter who would do something like that, because one seller among thousands will do nothing. The minute that the site or shop gets shut down, there are 20 more that pop up in its place. It comes down to people being educated and not buying stuff before doing their homework. Too many go out and buy fakes without a care because it's cheaper than anything they have seen online. The companies also have to protect the word of mouth advertising that comes from people buying fake clubs and the product not working out correctly or breaking. If a person buys a fake (insert company name) and then tells their friend(s) it was junk, that can affect what people think of that company. Most of the time they aren't smart enough to know that the club the have adverse feeling about is a fake. Comes down to people not buying them and using their brain.

You shouldn't suggest something you're not willing to do yourself. And why not me? Because I don't give a shiat.

^it looks like he purposefully limits the photos and the angles and does them in dark lighting

I actually called eBay once to report a fake because multiple people were bidding on it. I talked to a real person and he took a report and I think it got taken down eventually.

Usually eBay customer service is terrible but once I pushed the "report counterfeit" or something button, it took me to a guy in the U.S.

But you do have the skills to buy all his stuff, so your comparison makes no sense. Now we're back to why you're suggesting others to do something you could just do yourself...

And he's apparently wasting time he could be spending formulating his next stupid idea by petulantly flagging others' posts.
