If you like branded bags and watches but can’t quite afford one, please do not go buying the fakes. This is not only a matter of image, but more importantly, by buying fake luxury goods, we could unknowingly be funding organised crimes.
As extracted from Is buying fake a faux pas?
A new study finds consumers are spending more on counterfeit goods because it seems to have become socially acceptable. But the research by intellectual property law firm Davenport Lyons found almost 80 percent of consumers would be deterred if they knew sales partially helped to fund criminal activity, including terrorism.
So if you’re thinking of buying a fake Gucci bag or Louis Vuiton purse, do think again. You could unwittingly be financing the next suicide bombing. Say no to fakes.
