  • More than $10 Million in Counterfeit Apple iPods Recovered


    The LA Times is reporting that more than $10 million in counterfeit and stolen goods were recovered by Los Angeles Port Police. Among the items were iPod, iPhones and other various electronics.

    The items were found in a sophisticated downtown warehouse in Los Angeles and it seems the primary focus was Apple products, and pushing them onto the market. Many of these knock-offs were iPod Nano look-a-likes, a product that Apple still sells well.

    "This was a well-funded operation, and the counterfeits looked very authentic,"
    The items seem to have come from Asia, and had a value of more than $1.4 million. Also found by police were stolen electronics, toys and blankets worth about $2.5 million and bank receipts that show the group made more than $7 million in profits.

      I was watching a documentary about all this stuff, the documentary was saying that at various factories after the day shift had left the night shift guys would be making the counterfeit goods in the same factories here the legit goods were being made.
