PLUMBER BY TRADE – COUNTERFEITER BY OPPORTUNITY

When the plumbing business slows down due to the slumping economy, what do you do? Well, a plumber from Glendale, California decided to jump into the counterfeit business. Robert posted several ads on Craigslist.org advertising all types of brand name clothing items. The subject came to the attention of The True Religion Brand Jeans Anti Counterfeiting team, who tracked him down and had several undercover buys made by IC. The subject’s fun on the net only lasted about a month. Detectives from The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department took him down swiftly. I guess it’s back to fixing pipes for this counterfeiter!!
