Nothing will change it's here to stay no matter who makes the fakes if China stops someone else will start. The best thing about it is I won't be getting ripped off research = power & beer at the end of the day.

we know these fakes are just cheap VLFs, & the specs give it away awful

Exactly Lethal, unfortunately this is the world today, lies and deception every each way we turn.


Happy Hunting, Nightjar.

I don’t see how it’s a fake as nowhere dose it say Minelab or gpx ?? It might look very similar but a fors gold detector also looks similar to Minelab Pi detectors.

I saw a fake GPX 5000 on eBay a couple of years ago , it was advertised as a minelab brand , I spent a couple of hours phishing the seller and lodged a complaint with FBI in New York where the seller claimed to be based , he even provided a US phone number that matched his address , FBI acknowledged my complaint but I heard nothing more.

Hopefully they don’t start doing it to Z 7000 or SDC 2300 devil
