I was sold a counterfeit item on Trade Me, the auction linked to all the official site specifications and made out the product was genuine. I have since contacted the seller who claims I "should have asked on the auction whether it was genuine or fake". I don't think I should have had to do this as the auction should not have been misleading.
He has another one of the same item listed and when a user asked about whether it was genuine, the response was deliberately vague and this is after he knows the product is fake.
Do I have any actions I can take against the seller? Has anyone had any luck?
