CBP officers seize fake iPhones at Canadian border

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers have intercepted a shipment of fake Apple iPhones entering the US from Canada.

The shipment of 39 phones – bearing Apple’s trademarks – was discovered at the Pembina Port of Entry in North Dakota, and if genuine would have been worth around $31,000. Examination revealed the phones were counterfeit, so CBP seized the items.

“Our officers and import specialists do an excellent job targeting shipments and identifying counterfeit items,” said Barbara Hassler, Pembina Area Assistant Port Director - Trade.

“Counterfeit merchandise is often made of inferior materials, and can potentially threaten the health and safety of consumers.”
