Cases like this are not exceptional , but often the authorities in different countries seize counterfeit Apple accessories. In developing markets it is easier for such products to be distributed. Since both distributors and customers are aware of this, they often do not object to it, bearing in mind that they can be purchased for lower prices than the originals.

Besides the fact that a branded product is being counterfeited, the problem lies in the consequences of using this type of accessory . By not passing minimum requirements, they can cause damage to the devices where we connect them. To avoid this, it is best to always buy them from an official shop or authorized distributor. And of course, do not trust any accessory that is sold at a considerably lower price than that of the official store.
