Trading standards have seized a huge haul of fake Nike trainers destined for eBay. Valued at around £500k, shoes that would retail for around £120 were being sold at the bargain price of just £15.
Having made test purchases on eBay trading standards offices posed as traders interested in placing a bulk order and were shown a container stacked high with hundreds of boxes of “exceptionally good quality” counterfeit Nike trainers.
The local council warned other counterfeit sellers that the trading standards team are on their case. Trading in fake goods on eBay isn’t a great career option.
