CBP seizes $30m in fake designer goods

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the LA/Long Beach Seaport seized more than 13,500 counterfeit products in a shipment arriving from China, worth an estimated $30m.

The haul included handbags, tote bags, shoulder bags, crossbody bags, backpacks, shirts, and pants bearing numerous registered and recorded trademarks, such as Gucci, Chanel, Fendi, YSL and Louis Vuitton, accord to a CBP statement.

"Bad actors exploit e-commerce operations by selling counterfeit and unsafe goods through online platforms, particularly during the holiday season when shoppers are looking for deals," said Donald Kusser, port director of the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport.

"If the price of the product seems too good to be true, it probably is. Counterfeit goods are often of poor quality and can even be unsafe for you and your family."
