Have you heard the news? We have a new series of videos which show how common fake goods are. Be sure to watch our latest video about a fake Dyson hair dryer below, as it will show you what you can do if you find yourself in a similar situation.

What Inspired the Video and is it About?

Our Dyson video is not just an amusing look at what could happen — fake Dysons actually exist! On January 7, 2019, police in Shanghai busted a gang who were manufacturing and selling fake Dyson hair dryers. They managed to make more than 10 million yuan (US $1.5 million). It was reported that they were caught in the end because their fakes could not live up to the high-quality reputation of the original, authentic Dysons.

It was quite a smooth operation — they produced 500 to 600 devises per day at a production cost of 120 yuan. The hair dryers would subsequently be sold to a wholesaler for 650 yuan, and finally, the wholesaler would sell it online for 2200 yuan. It was quite a “bargain” considering that a real Dyson can retail at double this price. Clearly, it wasn’t worth the cost though!

The video shows a girlfriend telling her boyfriend that she needs a replacement for her broken hair dryer. Wanting to surprise her, the boyfriend thoughtfully places an online order for what he thinks is a genuine Dyson hair dryer. Soon after using it, the Dyson breaks, and the boyfriend rings the Dyson customer helpline to get a replacement. The operator informs him that his purchase is not a real Dyson, but a fake.
