Oceanside, CA (PRWEB) September 7, 2010
It has been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. The manufacturers of the wildly popular My Pillow Pets® plush folding stuffed animals beg to differ. This year alone, millions of genuine My Pillow Pets® plush folding stuffed animals will be sold. Because of the overwhelming popularity and high demand, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of “knock-offs” in the marketplace.
”Sadly, imposters have attempted to dupe consumers and capitalize on unsuspecting people who aren’t aware of how to check the authenticity of My Pillow Pets® plush folding stuffed animals,” said Jennifer Telfer, founder of My Pillow Pets®. Consumers need to know what to look for to ensure they are buying a real My Pillow Pets® plush folding stuffed animal:
- Most importantly, be sure to check that the sewn-in label on the back leg of the animal says “My Pillow Pets®”, “My Pillow Pets ™” or “Pillow Pets™”.
- Open the Pet up to its pillow form and confirm that the “My Pillow Pets®”, "My Pillow Pets™” or “Pillow Pets™” plush folding stuffed animal sewn-in label is on the lower left corner as shown on the company’s website.
- No other brand name should appear on an authentic “My Pillow Pets®” or “Pillow Pets™” plush folding stuffed animal.
- Ordering online at http://www.GetPillowPets.com guarantees that the consumer will receive an authentic product.
- If a consumer has any questions about My Pillow Pets® plush folding stuffed animals, they should call our toll-free customer service line at 1-800-318-7926.
If a consumer is certain that they have encountered a fake, they should call the local Consumer Fraud Division of their state’s Department of Justice or their local consumer fraud organization. My Pillow Pets® plush folding stuffed animals has received communication from upset consumers in Delaware, Ohio, New Jersey, and other states who have received help from local authorities in recovering their money and shutting down the imposters. In fact, the Delaware Department of Justice recently issued three search warrants and made one arrest in an ongoing fraud investigation involving a vendor selling imposter products under the My Pillow Pets® name.
“We want consumers and merchants alike to know that we take fraud seriously,” said Telfer. “It is priority one for us to protect our brand and deliver the high quality people have come to expect when they see the My Pillow Pets® plush folding stuffed animals authentic tag.”
