Top-14 Counterfeit Textbooks

counterfeit books

As a company, we care a lot about making the best possible experience for each and every our customer, that sells (or buys/rents) textbooks. We aspire to offer the best quotes for the textbooks we receive, but, unfortunately, there are some that cannot be accepted for buyback: counterfeit ones. The thing is that these items are produced illegally, and even if they have high quality and practically the same content, they lose their value on any self-respecting marketplace.

In this article we want to present you 14 items that are most likely to be counterfeit textbooks. Amongst them you will find a lot of worthy books, and that is exactly the point for those who produce them: these textbooks will always fill in the market niche due to the them being in high demand. Be careful and read on!

However, you don’t need to memorise those items by heart: now that we’ve launched a Counterfeit Calculator, it’s easier than ever to check if a textbook is likely to be a counterfeit or not.
