Watch out for fake or cheap Chinese parts

I received three parts orders today, all three were supposed to be factory Yamaha parts, SHINDENGEN regulator / rectifiers .
Two were, one which was listed as a "Yamaha" part is actually a cheap Chinese pattern part, which makes for a ok door stop, but a worthless RR.

So if your ordering parts that can be Chinese copies, ask the seller to state in plain clear English (or language of your choice....lol) that the part in question is a factory XYZ brand and not a after market pattern part.
Seller has been requested to take part back as not as advertised.... perhaps even no fault of their own...most folks would not be able to know the difference likely.. But if they screw me and say no, .I'll be happy to put them on blast and let other know to stay away from them.
