I've posted the details in the Cable Section:

I'm in the process of building a new system and it will be for the most part PS Audio gear. With that in mind I've been assembling cables from PS Audio. Specifically AC12 cables. I paid fair market value and avoided stuff shipped from overseas. I purchased one locally that was real. Two from Pennsylvania that were fake and one from Montreal that was also a turd. I'm not accusing the resellers of perpetrating any crimes. They could have been unwitting participants to a fraud. The fakes are 2m in length and come in a box that visually appears to be authentic. It has spelling errors on the box that make it obvious that it's not authentic. The cables are more rigid than the real one and also weigh in at 2.5 lbs the real one is 3.5 lbs.

Here is the link to PS Audio Forums about this fraud.

I got screwed. Please do your due diligence and ask for the correct details to be verified. Hopefully this will spare some people a rip off.

The fake PSA power cords are everywhere. They were selling cheap and brought down the true resale value of the real stuff. My friend didn't want to buy the real stuff from me and ended up got nail by receiving a fake one that was far inferior in performance.

So you get what you paid for.

By the way, the link provided by the OP did not work, but the link provided in the Cable forum did work. Thanks.
