Man arrested bringing fake handbags into Manhattan

Jump to last reply

Yesterday a van coming from NJ was stopped for a traffic violation. The driver mentioned he was in a hurry to get to a flea market to sell his handbags. The officer checked them out and found thousands of fake designer handbags, including Dolce & Gabbana. The driver was arrested for intent to sell counterfeit goods and police report they will be increasing patrols of flea markets, as well as Chinatown stores, in search of more counterfeiters. (As reported from a local TV station.)

So - anyone looking for bargains on designer goods - be sure you know enough to tell the real from the counterfeit - and assume anything ridiculously cheap (a $2000 bag for $100) is a fake that will quickly fall apart. (For real designers at bargain prices try bluelfy.com or Century 21.)
