At GSS, we are passionate about raising awareness of the Handgun Hanger frenzy on Amazon. We want people to be aware of counterfeit products on Amazon. This growing problem has almost drown out our entire business on Amazon by offering a Chinese made version of our Handgun Hangers.
On the other hand, it's hard letting people know about the lower priced (lower quality) product because, well, this blog is read by Americans and Americans like to get "good deals". By drawing attention, I'm telling people where to find our products for cheap. The fact is, everyone saving a few bucks has put our American made business in jeopardy. Amazon is huge and was, therefore, a huge part of our business.
The company producing counterfeit Handgun Hangers, going by the names E-Onsale and Johnson Brothers, is quite unscrupulous. Their misconduct is as follows - selling their counterfeit under our brand's listing, posing as a certified dealer, stealing copyrighted images, copying product descriptions, posting negative images and reviews to sabotage our quality products... I could go on.
After some research, it turns out this counterfeit scandal is happening all over Amazon. If you are interested on how your online shopping experience is being effected by these counterfeit products, please take time to read these articles. By reading, you will also get an idea of how your shopping decisions effect the US economy, US manufacturers, small businesses and American jobs.
Think before you buy.
