Thanks for the update. I only checked earlier this evening to see if there were any new comments, when looking to see if my account had been credited (it had). I did ask for a replacement genuine set but did not get the offer of one. I thought for "customer service" sake I might have got one.
I also noted someone is now selling a set for under £50, and a couple more under £100! Says the £50 one is a "Chinese import"? Must all be fake. I can't understand how Amazon can allow this to happen.
Still disapointed not to get a genuine set but can't justify the cost at the moment, so will keep an eye on things and see if any decent offers come up.
Thanks again.

Hi Guys,

I have just received a fake box set bought from a reputable Amazon seller. It was listed as 'used', and at around 90GBP I thought it would be OK.
Not so. Though there are no spelling mistakes etc that I can see, it's the overall quality of the printing that gives the game away.

I have contacted the seller - they perhaps didn't realise it was a fake, and I'll see what happens.
Meanwhile it would seem the only place you can be sure of getting the real thing is .... or are all sources now compromised?

hi there - I've been reading this thread with growing interest as the genuine Mono box sets dry up across Amazon, seemingly to be replaced by cut-price fakes - as a result have ordered one from Beatlesonline (through - will let all know how I get on

I received a full refund from the seller in double quick time, which was pleasing. The story went that this Beatles mono set had been shipped from the US in good faith. Possibly true, but the seller should have checked.

I ordered the real thing from, paying the full whack, and it came a couple of days later.
This really is the Real Thing - a wonderful package, both presentation and sonically - so it's worth it.

Good luck!
