Counterfeit Seahawks merchandise can be hard to tackle
As the new Seahawks season picks up speed, fans are showing their enthusiasm by buying jerseys, flags and anything else tied to the team or their favorite player. But there’s no shortage of websites selling counterfeits, or just scamming the fans. Last month Anine Colaire’s adult stepson, Cory, was searching for a gray Steven Hauschka jersey at the pro shops near their home in Olympia. Because the stores and the National Football League (NFL) website didn’t have one, Colaire suggested he do a little more Web browsing. When he found the No. 4 jersey he wanted, Cory shelled out the $99. But the jersey never arrived.
