    Hello everyone,

    I'm new here,
    Recently I buy DJI Phantom 3 Professional at EBAY shipping to my US dropper
    it does NOT look like a US product. It says lots of Chinese(or Japanese) words on the side of the box but it’s sealed.. See at attached images.
    Related with "DJI Forum|fake or not....."
    I'm want to ask about the originality?
    is it fake or not?

    You can see at the image below (Screenshot_2.png), there's phone number ( 400-700-0303 ) when i searching it to the google i found that phone numbers in this link "DJI知识库"
    Everyone please help me...

    Thanks

    It's Chinese writing. Perhaps you received a version that was meant to be sold in China? Call DJI w/ the serial number, they'll tell you if it's real or not, but I doubt it's fake. DJI is a Chinese company after all, so the writing isn't exactly suspect.

    On the box somewhere, not entirely sure where and I'm not at home to look.

    IMO there's only way to tell if it's real or fake and that's to open the box and look at it. If it's fake, I believe (but check for yourself) eBay has policies against selling counterfeit stuff so you'd be protected in that regard.

    ALL DJI products are made in China. They come with Chinese instructions. You have to download the manuals in English.

    DJI is a Chinese company so of course there's chinese script on the box.
    If you managed to get a fake, you've got the first one anyone's ever heard of.
    Go to www.dji.com and download your manual and you've got some reading to do.

    FWIW, there is no Chinese writing on any of my Phantom boxes. That certainly doesn't mean DJI does not have Chinese versions of their boxes though. I would imagine they do not sell them in China with English writing on the boxes.

    There should be a sticker on the side of the box with a serial number and barcode that starts with the letter c

    Thats why you should buy and support local dealers. IMO

    no way its fake being there are not any faked phantoms on the market. only other brands attempts to make there brand drones look a bit like a phantom. By being white and x shaped but it pretty much ends there.

    So thats for sure a real dji phantom. Or as some one already pointed out you would be the very first to have a counterfeit dji phantom 3 if it was fake.

    It's payment through PayPal. If you have the time and money to see if it's real then go for it. Just remember if things go south it's gonna take a few days to get the money back.

    True. But the recent negative feedback does suggest it's a scam. Plus don't fancy giving them that amount of money for them to get away with it.

    I bought a "too good to be true" item thru ebay/paypal, but the money was back in my account within 10 days of my claim. FWIW, that is about the price I bought my standard for a month ago, the release of the Ph4 is causing all the Ph3 prices to drop.

    The product advertised isn't fake but the seller is a scammer
