CBP finds fake electrical goods at International Falls

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in International Falls Port of Entry have seized around $715,000 worth of counterfeit electronics inside rail containers.

The shipment, headed towards Ranier, Minnesota, included 50 amplifiers, 662 cartons of earbuds and cables, including wireless headphones, and 57 cartons of sandwich boards and touch lamina. All three containers were found to contain counterfeit merchandise protected by copyright laws.

“Counterfeiting adversely affects the ability of lawful copyright holders to profit from their original ideas,” said Anthony Jackson, International Falls Port director. “Counterfeiting also harms consumers because manufacturers of forged products have little motivation to use safe, high-quality materials in their products.”
