Ebay will always side with the buyer, so you'll definitely get your money back.

The caveat is that they will probably make you ship it back to the seller, which won't be cheap since it's China.

 

Depending on how much you paid, you might just have to chalk it up as a loss.

i got a full refund and he said keep the torch! 

 

although it's not genuine, i think it's a great result. not sure on what i should do now, should i ruin him and report him to trading standards (UK police/watchdog on fake/counterfeit products), or just let it go, as i got a full refund, no one who purchases from the guy will ever suspect they have a fake.

he's been pestering me to leave 'positive 5 stars', getting a little annoyed about it,  haven't left any yet, going to think about what kind of feedback i can leave so people will get an idea he sells fakes.

Update:

some of the buyers i've informed have also found out that theirs are fakes, they have also contacted Ebay.

 

also got a message from Trading standards London, turns out this is the first time they have heard about fake LED Lenser products being sold, they plan on buying one from the seller to investigate. 

 

they also informed me that the seller is from China and uses a trading estate in London to ship goods, probably why the items are listed as in UK.
