Fake Hoya Filters on Ebay

I just recieved a 49mm Hoya HMC UV(c) filter from an Ebay seller. On receiving, it was obvious that either it was a fake or Hoya have very poor printers for their labels inside the box.

The different colours printed onto the packaging do not line up, and as a final proof, on the back of the packaging label inside the box, is the name of the company that supplied the label - Shanghai Jinda Plastic Co Ltd based in Shanghai.

Orange printing does not line up with White print.

Rear of the package label states supplier, Shanghai Jinda Ltd of Shanghai China.
