    To avoid the purchase of counterfeit golf equipment, consumers should consider the following tips:

    Purchase from a reputable dealer
    Contact brand owner for list of authorized dealers
    Be skeptical of “too good to be true” deals
    Be aware of return policy if not satisfied with product
    Be aware of money-back policies
    Research legitimacy of foreign websites
    Request references
    If purchasing from an overseas retailer, know import requirements or contact a local CBP office.
