Latest NewsWatch Out For Christmas Fakes
Sir Greg Knight, Member of Parliament for East Yorkshire has warned the public to be wary of counterfeit goods this Christmas.
Sir Greg said: “In previous years as Christmas approaches Britain has been flooded with fake iPads, children’s toys, fake brand name clothing and other electronic goods from China.
The MP added: “Whilst a counterfeit product may look genuine, fake products are usually made of dubious materials and have a very different internal composition. Consumers should ask the seller, check and then double check to determine if a product is what it claims to be. These goods are not only inferior to the products they copy but they could also be dangerous.”
Mr Knight added, “When shopping online special vigilance is particularly needed. For peace of mind and added protection it is often worth paying a little bit more to buy from an online retailer that ships from the UK.”
The Home Office has previously revealed that unscrupulous importers cost Britain around £1.3bn a year in lost revenue from import duty and VAT.
