Customs agents seize hundreds of counterfeit Apple products in Buffalo
If you were waiting on a pair of cheap headphones for your iPhone, we got bad news for you.
Customs and Border Protection agents say they seized hundreds of fake Apple products at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo.
The products were found after agents selected a box labeled “earphones” for further inspection. Inside, they found 500 EarPods and 150 adapters with the Apple logo. But, after close inspection, agents say they found the products were counterfeits.
The total value of the fake merchandise is $15,000, agents say. Agents add, “Counterfeit merchandise is often made of inferior materials, manufactured under uncontrolled and unsanitary conditions and labeled with false information, potentially threatening the health and safety of buyers and users.”
