    Default 10 Charged With Counterfeiting Designer Handbags in Seattle

    This news makes me so happy, because I know exactly who these people are and where their store was!

    They useto be like a block from my house than they moved, I hoped that were put out of business, then I later learned that they moved to another part of town and were selling out of a van! Omg, so sketchy, lol. So glad it's over for them.

    SEATTLE -- Ten people were arraigned in court Monday, charged with selling counterfeit designer handbags, wallets and sunglasses, reported KIRO 7 Eyewitness News. Seattle police said they confiscated multiple boxes of bogus merchandise worth a few million dollars during a two-year investigation. Prosecutors said the men, all immigrants from West Africa, were selling the fake handbags and wallets made to look like items sold by Coach, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and others, for $50 to $60. According to court documents, some of the defendants sold the fake handbags out of a store in Seattle at Jackson and 22nd streets.

    KIRO 7 reporter Jeff Dubois visited the store Monday morning. No handbags were seen inside and the person at the store declined to comment on the charges. Authorities said some of the defendants were selling the merchandise out of vans on Seattle's waterfront and at EB's Fine Handbag's in Belltown. When a KIRO photographer went to the Belltown store, it was closed but there were bags for sale inside. According to police, some of the men said they knew the purses were counterfeit, but didn't know it was illegal to sell them in the state. One person in court told Dubois the owner of the Belltown store, who is one of the defendants, is now selling "knock-off" handbags instead of counterfeit bags. Most of the 10 defendants are not in police custody. All pleaded not guilty.If convicted of counterfeiting, the men could be sentenced from three months to five years in prison.

    Awesome. There are a few stores like that over here, that blatantly advertise fake merchandise. Maybe they are under investigation too...

    Hopefully more of these fakers will get caught! There is an gondola in this Vietnamese mall that sells fake purses too! It's just disgusting. I'm glad it's over for those guys though!
