It's not just "Chibsons": they're ripping off everyone and anyone that they can these days. My wife's been looking for a Green Tiger-striped Jackson Kelly for years. I recently saw one on eBay--for a mere $399, an impossible price. It was actually listed as a "Firehawk" brand, yet the photos showed an actual "Jackson" headstock. So I contacted the seller and asked them what was the actual brand--would the guitar have a "Firehawk" or a "Jackson" headstock decal? The guy actually responded "What would you like?". So not only was he misrepresenting the guitar in photos, but blatantly offering to sell a fraud. He has at least six or seven other guitars and basses for sale on eBay that clearly show "original" manufacturer's logos on the headstocks: Gibsons, Corts, etc...eBay says they're investigating, but a week later, the guitars are still up for sale. Outrageous.
