Please be careful of damage incurred by counterfeit products through e-commerce.
Damage incurred by counterfeit products through e-commerce is increasing.
A recent report on online frauds shows examples of suspicious watches believed to be counterfeit products.
Counterfeit products are sold through e- commerce websites and online auctions, as well as spam e-mails sent to consumers at random. The counterfeit products include poor-quality watches labeled with well-known watch makers and imitations that look just like the real watches advertising them as copy and replica products, and they are all illegal.
