    Counterfeit VCDS using the Ross-Tech name

    This video just came across in my suggested videos feed on youtube and someone has made a VERY convincing counterfeit HEX-V2 even going to far as to include the Ross-Tech name, logo, and label.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL4kM5_2DM8

    And here's the Amazon link

    https://www.amazon.com/Interface-Diagnosis-software-English-Italian/dp/B07ZHGYQGH/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=hex+v2&qid=1573766901&sr=8-4

    Funny, both the video and the product on Amazon seem to have disappeared.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I think this is another listing by the same company as the previous one.

    https://www.amazon.com/Orihat-HEX-V2-Diagnosis-German-English/dp/B0814SFW2Y/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=vcds+HEX&qid=1573841888&sr=8-3

    Just out of curiosity, do you want us reporting counterfeits? If so, is this the best place to do so?
