US woman sentenced for fake goods trafficking

A Nebraska woman has been sentenced to three years' probation for trafficking in counterfeit goods, mainly designer clothes and accessories.

Paw Moo (29) of Omaha was sentenced by US district judge Robert Rossiter Jr for trafficking $118,000-worth of handbags, clothes, blankets, phone cases, belts and a wallet from brands that included Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Yves St. Laurent, Michael Kors, Coach and Nike.

The case dates back to February  of this year, when Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in Anchorage, Alaska, seized a shipment of fake designer purses destined for Moo’s residence.

On March 23, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) – using an undercover officer – executed a controlled delivery of the seized package to Moo's residence in Omaha. Moo accepted the package and HSI agents executed a search of her residence where numerous items with counterfeit marks were located.

Moo claimed she began to sell items online from her residence in the beginning of March 2020 and began selling counterfeit items in the autumn of that year, a timeframe that "was consistent with her importation history," said the Department of Justice in a statement.
