20 counterfeit dealers busted from February to August

National Police Agency's Intellectual Property Rights Police Team said that it has busted more than twenty counterfeit apparel dealers from February to August this year selling their merchandise in "special name brand sales events" in shopping districts across Taipei.

IPRPT said that so called name brand sales events that have recently appeared in Taipei advertising low-price, out-of-season apparel consists 90 percent of counterfeit merchandise. The team discovered that seventy to eighty percent of the merchandise originated in mainland China, Vietnam, and Thailand.

IPRPT said that a recent bust on a special brand name sales event uncovered more than 10,000 pieces of counterfeit apparel, with brand names such as Polo, Timberland, Abercrombie & Fitch, Nautica, and Burberry.

In particular, the team said that as Abercrombie & Fitch does not have an authorized dealer in Taiwan, consumers should beware of the authenticity of any Abercrombie & Fitch product that they find in stores or markets.

IPRPT said that between February and August, more than 50,000 pieces of counterfeit apparel have been discovered in the special sales events which would have incurred several hundreds of millions of NT dollars in damages to the brands.

Police said that besides the special brand name sales events, counterfeit apparel was also discovered in night markets, traditional markets, and even a sporting goods chain store.
