Why should you avoid buying fakes?

There are lots of reasons why you should not buy fakes - and some that you may not have considered before.

  • The goods may be dangerous - from cosmetics that can cause skin rashes to fake car parts that may cause accidents.
  • A lot of fake goods fund drug dealers and other organised crime - even terrorism.
  • You may end up paying higher taxes because people who deal in fakes don't - consumers like you end up making up the difference.
  • You may be putting local people out of jobs because genuine manufacturers can't compete with the criminals making and selling fakes.
  • If you buy fake goods and they don't live up to your expectations, you won't get any after sales service or guarantees.
  • Fake goods deprive the copyright owner of money that can be used to fund new development.
