Default Mutterings after watching TV

Right guys,

I dont know why i'm writing this but Ive just been watching the one show on BBC1.. this Christmas there have been 10 million worth of counterfeit goods going through ports air,sea etc and thats whats been stopped.

Trading Standards, Police are all cracking down on it and there is a good chance if youve imported fair amounts that if you get caught you may be raided... if you think im joking go onto iPlayer and watch with your own eyes.


They showed on the program 1. D r Dr e B eat s Headphones being seized in bulk also hair straighteners you name it...

Just a warning for you foo-foo people that you will get busted if its a big enough quantity, also your supplier wont give you a refund!

Counterfeit isnt my game as it doesnt last.. so try something different is my advice and if you dont want my advice I wouldnt try over Christmas!!

People that deal in these goods already know the risks. But thanks for the great post.

hdavey10,

In my experience, there is little point in trying to convince those who are determined to sell counterfeits that there are potential CONSEQUENCES involved if they get caught.

They think it is quick and easy cash, and that THEY are smarter than everyone who ever got caught, so it cannot possibly happen to them.
