More than 39,000 counterfeit goods were seized from exports at Long Beach Seaport

-

In excess of 39,000 counterfeit things – including fake Air Jordans and Chanel handbags — were seized from shipments at the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport last month.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) revealed Thursday that the things were seized from two separate shipments on July 19 and July 30.

CBP officials and Homeland Security Investigations specialists discovered fake shoes, sneakers, caps, wallets, backpacks, cell phone cases and belts bearing the logos including Gucci, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Yeezy, Versace, Fendi, Balenciaga, Burberry, Chrome Hearts and Nike.

As indicated by CBP, if the things were genuine they would hold a worth of more than $53.7 million.

“The size of these deceitful shipments unmistakably exhibits the ravenousness and dangers transnational criminal associations will take to build their illegal benefits,” said Carlos C. Martel, CBP overseer of field Operations in Los Angeles. “CBP officials stay cautious, submitted, and zeroed in on disturbing these pirating activities.”

In February, in excess of 3,700 counterfeit jugs of fragrance were likewise seized at the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport.
