Nearly $3m of fake jewellery, watches seized in Cincinnati

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in Cincinnati have seized two shipments of jewellery and watches deemed to be counterfeit.

The first shipment originated from Quezon City, Philippines, and was headed to a private residence in Aurora, Illinois. Although it had a declared value of $50, the package held 237 items of jewellery or watches labelled as Hermes, Chanel, Cartier, Gucci, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, Van Cleef, Bvlgari, and Rolex. Had the items been genuine, the cumulative manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) would have been more than $780,000.

The second shipment came from China and was addressed to an individual in New York, New York. This shipment contained 87 counterfeit Rolex, Cartier, Audemars Piguet, and Panerai watches with a total MSRP of almost $2.2m had they been real.
