Counterfeit Minelabs


Recommended Posts

Hey gang, I've been reading more and more about fake Minelabs recently. Kinda scares a guy away from Ebay, aye? Once in a while I run across one on Craigs or when traveling. I have been apprehensive about buying one. How would you tell the difference? Rather are there some distinct features that only a genuine unit would have? Thanks for your input.

You've probably seen this article already.


No doubt there's going to have to be other changes made also since the counterfeiting will get better and better. I think it's going to be a never ending battle considering the money involved.

I think your best bet is to know the seller before you buy.

Bring to a dealer we have a special gizmo to read the hologram thingy or call Minelab with the serial #. Best bet is buy from only an authorized dealer or the savings you try to get may be a real bummer overall sadly.
