Alert! Fraudulent Online Sellers

Honda has seen an increase in scam sites that are advertising Honda generators well below market price. Please be aware: if a price looks too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t fall for a scam. Be sure to buy only from authorized Honda dealers. You can check to see if a dealer is legitimate using our dealer locator: http://powerequipment.honda.com/dealer-locator

Here are some red flags for scam sites:


- • Prices are several hundred dollars below market price.
- Site content is poorly written—especially Contact Us or About Us pages
- Limited payment options. (i.e. only accepts Paypal, or prepaid debit cards.)
- Limited contact information available
- Site is newly created and has no history online
- The address on the site is a residence, not a business.


Here's an example: http://www.hondageneratorshop.com

Caveat emptor!
