This is why I made sure I bought my Note 3 off of a known good seller from Amazon instead of some cheap online Chinese cyberwarehouse (like neverbuying). Caveat emptor

Depending on the model of it, there may be a thread on XDA about it. Similar to the (faked) N9006 version. - Or Jay's link.

He did state he knew it was a fake, and his finances only enabled him to purchase a fake.
