I scanned the QR codes both the same and showing a manufacture date of something different than on the label

If the QR code doesn't match the date its fake. No ifs ands or buts about it.

Its fake, there is no RMA, only sending back
tip, ask before you buy, tell the seller you have a original battery to compare and you know how to check if its a fake one.
If you do this and they still send you a fake one they will be screwed by ebay

If you used PayPal, you can open a contestation and describe that the item you received it s a fake. And that you want a total refound. I had a similar problem 4 times and I had my money back and the fake object not sent back, cause I told them I won t pay the shipping cost because I bought a real object and received a fake one. You have always to use PayPal on internet especially if you have to buy cheap phone parts. I m a PC , smartphone and electronics technician 😉

I beg to disagree, I too purchased fake N5 batteries prior to shopping at spareslg.com, BayPal Protection Plan is a LURE to create a sense of safety/wellbeing delusion to attract buyers to make usage of BayPal.

Credit Cards companies offer much more protection than BayPal

Normally transaction will be fine if there are no issues, but when purchasing items like N5 batteries from either ebay or Amazon, it is better to use a Credit Card rather than BayPay as when issues arrive you will be given a long ride and eventaully receive the message "blah blah blah.....We've completed our review and unfortunately are not able to decide this claim in your favour."
BayPal will ALWAYS side with the Sellers because they are BayPal's Bread & Butter.

The answer is Yes I have been scammed and BayPal protected the Scamming bar-steward.

I typed the message from my phone ,there s no need to rewrite baypal to take joke of my mistyping . Never had any problems with PayPal, I ve got a refund every time ,instead I had some problems with my credit card and so I switched to PayPal

They are in the suburbs in Chicago. Unfortunately it's fake but you get what you paid for. Nice ppl there too. I would estimate over 50% of batteries are fake because the wrapping can be easily copied.
