The biggest complaint we receive from concerned buyers is that no one seems to be willing to assist the customer in stopping these sellers. We receive numerous reports that the Police advise that it is too time consuming to gather the required evidence. Many manufacturers advise that it is too costly to engage legal teams to prosecute low-level distributors of counterfeit goods.
Online market places and e-stores advise customers that they need evidence to close a site and do not have the resources to do this.

We are seeking your co-operation with this pro-active approach, which will result in benefits to the unsuspecting consumer, which will:
If you have purchased a counterfeit product we can, in some cases, assist you in recovering your money and report the seller to the brand name manufacturer and assist the police in taking action. In some cases we can obtain substantial rewards for information, which results in large or significant seizures.
We have already secured the co-operation of many of the major brand names and your assistance will help them maintain the quality and consistency of their products.
