US CUSTOMS INTERCEPTS $9.3 MILLION IN COUNTERFEIT DESIGNER MERCHANDISE

A news release from US Customs & Border Protection advised that officers working at the Dallas Fort Worth port of entry intercepted a shipment of counterfeit footwear, handbags, and textiles worth over $9.3 million dollars.  The counterfeit designer merchandise originated in China and was destined for McKinney, Texas.  It is said that a thorough examination of the shipment of 148 boxes manifested as “Ladies Sweater Ladies Sweatpants” yielded a treasure trove of poorly packaged footwear, handbags and textiles bearing protected trademarks such as Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Adida’s Yeezy designer footwear line.
