Bottom line though, do I need to have my 1 year old ~$200 A"R Ksav mezuzos checked?
Or is this only for the "mivtzoim" mezuzos?

There are a few factors to take into consideration.
1. The price. While this seems to be a good indicator to detect the quality of Mezuzos, if there is indeed fraud in the industry, price may not be a guarantee.
2. Name. Do you know the name of the Sofer who wrote your Mezuzos? This seems to be a good indicator that your goods are legit.
3. Trust. Sometimes we feel with industries which we're not familiar with and sometimes we don't even have friends in the industry. If you know someone who knows someone who knows someone who WROTE the goods, as long as you know the names of all the people in between and each one has a LOT of trust in the next person, them you should be okay.

Otherwise, you should probably get them checked ASAP.

Always get your Stam computer checked as well.

I had my Stam computer, checked. The IT guy said it was good, just a little slow.
What version?

What about matza? Or anything Jewish for that matter that's been turned into a huge industry?

Re: wolf and raskin related, that's a joke. Same comments say that Shapiro from vaad rabinei lubavitch bais din is Uncle of Klein son in law who runs business.

Everyone in chabad is related, even me as a child of baalei teshuva's, I'm related to half of chabad by marriage.

Btw I'd wager that wolf is also related to many in the Stam industry he is waring with.

With that said, I would love more background, I thought the use of the term fraud was too far fetched but maybe it really is known fraud ?

Problem with stuff like this is often there's no blow back fear, no class action lawsuits.

I just went to check the aforementioned website to read the comments.
I am horrified !! When Chabad people talk , They write “this is a Chilul Lubavitch”
How low of a people to switch the term Chilul Hashem for Chilul Lubavitch.
You switch Hashems Honor for Lubavitch ?? 
Of course Moshiach won’t come ! I am disgusted

Same! Don't buy unless you know who you're buying from. You don't want to know what's going on in some of these bakeries with some "high standard Hechsherim".

If that's what horrified you on COL, I don't even know what to say.

Maybe it’s an old problem. I hope not .
Either way , it’s a Massive Chilul Hashem to remove Hashems name and insert Lubavitch. Are the Rabbanai Chabad ok with this ? As far as I know no other group of Yidden do this , not Sefardim , Litvaks , any other Chassidus , or Modox.
It’s literally a Chilul Hashem . May Hashem have mercy on his people .

I know that there are others who use the words Ben Torah instead to describe behavior that shouldn't be happening.

For example, "That's not a what Ben Torah would do.. "

Same thing.

Because it’s used in all Jewish circles to refer to the honor of God ??

Torah is not a Litvish thing , or a Sefardi/ Chasidic thing .
It’s Hashems Torah !!
Besides The word Hashem is being removed and replaced with Lubavitch . It’s shocking.
