Counterfeit goods: Why risk it?

A new Trading Standards campaign is to target the sale of counterfeit goods in the run-up to Christmas – including the advertising of fake goods via Facebook and rogue trading from people’s homes, places of work and via eBay.

The campaign highlights the dangers of purchasing counterfeit goods – illegal copies passed off as originals, and often bearing fake labels – and how to report rogue sellers to the authorities.
