Your days of toting fake designer bags are numbered. In an unprecedented move, Chinese and American authorities have helped shut down a counterfeiting ring in China that is said to be producing LV, Hermès and Coach bags that are as fake as Heidi Montag's tits.
According to WWD,
'A total of 73 people were arrested as part of the sting, code named “Blue Plan,” which resulted in the shutdown of 37 sites involved in the manufacture of low-quality copies of handbags from designer brands such as Louis Vuitton, Coach and Hermès.
According to a statement released by China’s Ministry of Public Security, 20,000 counterfeit bags were seized, along with machinery and enough raw materials to construct an additional 50,000 bags. In total, the entire counterfeiting operation was estimated to be worth $802 million at current exchange rates'.
Why am I not surprised?
