Turns out I just bought a fake too... Some people truly suck.

It was advertised as a Hex-V2. Seller will not take it back, nor will he acknowledge that these go for 25$ new. I paid $100 for it and it was said to have 1 VIN used.

My plan was to use it on my current VW and then add more VINs and sell it, or keep it until I did not need it anymore.

Just goes to show you, gotta be careful.

And if you want a fake, then buy a fake. If you want the real one, buy from a distributor or someone you actually know and trust.

So what is the best thing to do with one such fake?
