Chances are you’ve seen a counterfeit product or knockoff. Maybe you’ve even purchased one and had it shipped to your home, only to find out later it wasn’t authentic. Counterfeit goods are products, typically of inferior quality, sold under another company’s brand. Many counterfeit goods are purchased online but some can be bought in stores, in flea markets, or through individuals on social media. Counterfeit products pose several problems. They might not meet safety and environmental regulations, which could lead to health and safety concerns. The sale of some counterfeit products can even be linked to funding organized crime or terrorism.
