We would like users to be really aware and careful when purchasing Foscam cameras from Amazon.com. We recently purchased a camera from an Amazon seller who claimed to be an authorized distributor and what we received was a Foscam clone. In addition, not only was it a clone, but the clone was drop shipped from China despite the description stating that it was going to ship from New Jersey. Buyers, please be aware of this and do not risk getting a faulty knock off camera just to save a few dollars. We have reported this violation to Amazon and the seller is in the processed of being removed. (As a rule of thumb, anyone selling a Foscam for under $100 on Amazon or Ebay is more than likely a scam).
I will put up pictures and do a review and comparison of the clone against the real deal so you can see the differences. In the meantime, I would like any other users who have purchased knockoffs/clones to please leave a comment indicating the name of the seller as well as the marketplace( from which they purchased it (e.g., Ebay, Amazon, etc). Doing this will allow us to better protect users from being ripped off by criminal pirates and bootleggers (against whom we will be taking legal action).
