“Customers are also left out of pocket with inferior and potentially dangerous goods. We believe that interventions at the border are the most effective way to reduce the flow of counterfeit goods into the UK. This work supports our Government Strategy on IP enforcement and helps protect consumers from the dangers of counterfeit goods.”
Those involved in counterfeiting are in the business to take advantage of consumers and make huge profits in the process.

The goods are often of inferior quality, dangerous and the proceeds can be used to fund other serious organised crime. Counterfeiters have a total disregard for safety or quality, and even if items look genuine at first, they may end up being a dangerous or inferior copy.
Border Force South Director Sue Young said: “Counterfeiters will look to capitalise and cash in where there is a demand for a product and this year our officers have seized all sorts of fake goods from beauty products to food and electrical goods.

“We urge consumers to be careful with their purchases. If the price appears too good to be true either at a car boot sale, a market stall or online it probably is.”
Anyone who has been sold counterfeit goods or knows someone who is selling them should contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
