    Planning on buying a K90 from a member on this forum, wanted you guys to decide if it was fake or not?

    uh.. so youre buying from a member of this forum and you ask people on this forum whether its a fake right now...

    and the seller can actually see that you dont trust him... im not saying ure not allowed to do that.. its just kinda not a good idea imo

    This thread shows that some people speak without much regard. The real question here is why do you think it is a fake? Did the seller have references?

    No references. Already searched the username. I suppose the user approached me since I put up a WANTED ad looking for a K90. User sent me pics, says its in 9/10 condition.

    Just want to make sure it isn't fake. I don't really think it is fake, but $100+ is alot of money to be throwing around carelessly,so I want to make sure it is the real deal.

    So if you are the seller reading this, this comes as no disrespect to you, but rather a lookout for those scums looking to scam people with fake rackets.

    i've studied some fakes, and that looks genuine, but make sure there is a red dot in the C in factor on the bottom of the top hoop

    i acutally owned a fake and a real (on purpose)

    Yeah red dot. Maybe a pic of the buttcap could help too.

    That is mos def real my man. I personally wouldn't go on here and point out that it's a seller on the boards about this problem though.
