Was looking around for radios today and found that Icom is having issues with fake radios coming in from overseas with the Icom logos, and selling cheap.

For instance, if you go here you'll see fake Icom radios sold in the US: www.446shop.com/Product/Pro133.html
Here's Icom's public notice regarding it:
www.icomamerica.com/en/media_events/news...ticle.aspx?id=201301
www.icom.co.jp/world/genuine-info/
Counterfeit list: www.icom.co.jp/world/genuine-info/pdf/Co...rfeit_model_list.pdf
Here's a fake one 'cause it's not a model Icom makes; but with Icom logo: www.446shop.com/pic/201204/764722.jpg
