How to spot fake decks?

Tarot & Oracle decks are becoming very very popular day by day..

As they are getting popular

You can also find fake decks on amazon & ebay, not only on sites like wish & aliexpress.

So let's check on how to spot a fake deck

 Unusually low prices

Price is a give away, prices vary from £3-7

You can't buy a deck for £3 come on now. That's too low, maybe you can buy a damaged deck for £7 a second hand damaged old deck but not a brand new deck.

2- Irrelevant photos / Images

3- Unusually high prices

Here Anima Mundi Tarot

While you can buy the Original for £44.00 why would you go and pay £73.28

below is a fake one 

Omegland Tarot 

While you can buy the original for £18.33 

why pay these prices 

as you see the above one is on amazon.

Product Description 

That doesn't stat the name of the deck

Some says the decks are both in Eng & Chinese titles but it may come just in Chinese titles, but they claim it to be in full Eng. 

I do have some decks in Chinese / Eng - Chinese, they are from legit shops from HK., some are gifts from my friend in Hong Kong 

Product / Seller Location :  China
