Fake designer seller jailed

No primary category set

A man who allegedly made £170k a year selling fake designer clothing on eBay has been jailed for twelve months. Simon Waugh from Tolworth sold fake versions of Nike, Prada, Armani, Diesel, Burberry and other designers as the genuine article. After a complaint from one of his customers, Kingston Trading Standards made a test purchase and then raided his home, taking away 600 items of clothing and two computers. Their chief officer said “We hope that this acts as a deterrent to those who believe that trading on internet websites offers a layer of protection.”
