From October 25 to October 28, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in Cincinnati seized shipments containing 795 pieces of counterfeit designer items. The items were examined and determined to be counterfeit by CBP’s Centers of Excellence and Expertise (CEE). The CEE is composed of the agency’s trade experts – if genuine, would have had a combined Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $3.16 million.

The shipments arrived from Hong Kong and were destined to locations in Texas and Florida. The counterfeit jewelry contained logos from LV, Chanel, Van Cleef, Tory Burch, Gucci, Cartier, Tiffany, Rolex and more.

All the counterfeit items were seized and referred to Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) for further investigation.
