Bernard Arnault can go to sleep easy tonight as bags copied from his various companies and several other fashion houses were seized on a counterfeit inspection. Three Chinese nationals were arrested and accused of bringing in more than 300,000 counterfeit luxury items.
Assistant Attoney General, Alice Fisher (no doubt a fashion lover) was quoted by CNN saying, “This was a sophisticated criminal conspiracy that trafficked millions of dollars of counterfeit goods from China, profiting off the backs of legitimate companies and their hard-working employees…”
Custom agents started investigating this scam five years ago. The raids occurred within the past two days across the country netting the fashion criminal masterminds in New York and Las Vegas.
