There are currently a number of websites and advertisements from bogus providers in circulation, which claim to be selling the STIHL GTA 26 garden pruner at low prices between $24 and $49. These fraudsters give the impression of being directly linked to STIHL. For example, they use official STIHL image material or URLs with STIHL references. However, anyone taken in by these offers will not receive a STIHL product after payment.
