Counterfeit Cartier worth $2.6m seized in New Orleans

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in New Orleans have seized 180 pieces of counterfeit Cartier jewelry from a shipment coming from Hong Kong.

If authentic, the jewelry would have a manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of more than $2.6m. The shipment was discovered in a parcel addressed to a local dealer. When CBP officers inspected the parcel, which was manifested as “jewelry accessory,” they discovered bracelets of poor quality packaged in Cartier boxes, and determined them to be counterfeit.

Hong Kong has been known to be a frequent shipper of counterfeit jewelry. CBP officers around the US, including in Philadelphia and Indianapolis, have also seized shipments of counterfeit jewelry from Hong Kong. To date, this is the largest jewelry seizure in New Orleans this year.
