Hey I ordered a set of 4 NTK oxygen sensors off Ebay. I saw a post online saying they should be stamped with NTK and come with a plastic cap on end plus arrive in a green NTK box.

They have no stamp, no plastic cap, were all together in one box. Did I get scammed?

First few pics are real NTK and then the other three are ones I actually received.

Even if they were stamped NTK I would be worried, My friend purchased OEM Honda parts off Amazon which were marked Honda and with Honda marked boxes - Turns out they were counterfeit causing failure to his engine, I try to buy local now to avoid problems - Amazon and Ebay are both suspect lately.

When I looked on ebay for NTKs, I was not convinced what I came up with was actually the genuine article, despite an ad's claims to the contrary. Even when a sensor did have the NTK logo stamped on it, there seemed to be confusion among sellers whether it was the correct model that I needed. In the end, I decided it wasn't worth the risk and got what I needed from Autozone instead.

I would say that if your sensor didn't come in the original NTK box and didn't come in the sealed plastic bag with the little green NTK logos printed all over it (as u show in your first pic), it's pretty safe to assume what you got isn't the real deal.

They were fake NTK's and actually had MADE IN USA stamped on them not MADE in Japan like NTK has lol

Not buying any more parts off Ebay in the future

Dont completely give up on Ebay. Ive bought many good parts on ebay and they have a very good return policy.... Which is the main reason Im worried about selling anything on ebay.

I do like Ebay. It is sad that some dishonest scammer sellers make the good ones look bad. I may still but some parts but not anything that is really critical if they fail.
