The 210 is merely a replacement for the E3c, but I have yet to se fakes.
If you spent enough time on erji.net (Chinese equivalent of Head-fi), you will find pictures of fake / clone / knock-off being posted there, especially on popular brand such as Sennheiser and Shure. Fake IEM are just as common as the real deal in China. Fake IE6, IE7, IE8 - I have seen pictures of them all.
See the warning sticky on the forum about Shure's IEM? That was posted there after Shure trying to warn people about all the fake Shure on eBay, which include most of the low end Shure models. In fact, I remember Shure has a topic in their FAQ section showing all types of fake Shure found online. Fake IEM doesn't have to look like the real thing, all it takes are a few plastic parts and some wording.
