A counterfeit organization operating in the Santee Alley area was dismantled by law enforcement officials. They seized 1.2 million dollars worth of counterfeit jewelry bearing the trademarks of various world famous brand owners. The organization used a network of warehouses and storage units to store and distribute their counterfeit merchandise.

The group had been directly importing their counterfeits from China and Korea. The scary thing is, the jewelry was tested and contained high levels of lead, even though the jewelry was marked “lead free”. Intellectual property enforcement actions protect both the original brand owner and the consuming public. Counterfeits can be dangerous because you never know what’s inside them!
