Canadian investigators find it hard to spot fake apparels
28
Apr '12
It is becoming increasingly difficult for Canadian investigators to distinguish counterfeit clothing from the real ones.

The counterfeit goods makers have improved their skills over the last two years and the growing number of incidents of trying to sell fake goods at the price of real ones is causing a concern in Canada, investigators say.

Normally, counterfeit garments have sub-standard packaging and ill-finished stitching. But the one cue that often sets the fake apart from the real ones is spelling errors in the English translation on the apparel tags, according to investigators.

It is estimated that around 80 percent of fake apparels sold in Canada have their origin in China.

Some sportswear companies authorize only selected licensed stores to sell their apparel products, whereas counterfeit ones can be sold online, at flea markets and by small-time vendors.
