NEW SCAM! Bootlegs made and sold as official! Read 3 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 16
Hello,


we came across recently on ebay and the net some handmade Mexican 7" and 12" vinyls.

ACIR 7" singles with totally fake covers, never produced originally by Acir nor endorsed by Epic, plus one of the most sought-after Mexican promo which, unfortunately, has been reproduced entirely but it's a fake one, so be careful .

The fake promo 12" vinyl in question is the Obsequio De Discotecas made as an official promo originally in Mexico in red vinyl, containing the song "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough'.

But the real version is totally different inside and outside, as the real version has brighter colors and some specific details that the fake one doesn't have it.

The same goes for ACIR 7" singles like Billie Jean, Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, Shake Your Body Down To The Ground (by The Jacksons), Man In The Mirror, The Girl Is Mine and some others, claimed as official in red or black vinyl, but they have ALL fake covers, handmade by some scammer in Mexico.



For any doubt, you can contact us and we'll try to help you in spotting the differences between the real one and the fake one.

Beware of ebay sellers and discogs too!

Laura

It's unofficial from Peru but there are 2 different covers. You''ll find the other one here on promo 7" single category.

Since the market has been invaded by make fakes, especially from Mexico lately, handmade covers, very far from being original, now we hope there's not making the same thing with Peruvian ones. As Peru has the official Epic Marchate 7" single without any cover, so this in the auction is unofficial but if Record Inc. 1983 doesn't exist or didn't pay royalties to Epic,it means that's a handmade bootleg too.
