Unilever tip leads Customs raid of P2B fake goods, gadgets

 

The losses could have been bigger if this global brand didn’t speak up.

Customs agents discovered rooms full of counterfeit goods hidden in a building in Binondo, Manila following a tip from Unilever, after the company received reports of knock-offs being sold to the public.

Imagine the horror when operatives unearthed three units filled with fake goods and gadgets, which they pegged to be worth around P2 billion.

Apart from fake soaps and detergents, counterfeit accessories, gadgets action cameras and headsets were also in the pile.

The brands replicated were from Beats, Apple, Samsung, Adidas, Bose, Oppo, Olay and Aveeno, the Bureau of Customs said.

“The units will be guarded by the customs police while pending investigation,” the agency said in a statement, adding that the goods will be seized and destroyed.
