Amazon and eBay have become perfect platforms to enable and support distribution of counterfeit goods, a $1.7 trillion global criminal enterprise. The problem is that anybody can open a marketplace shop and sell anything on the websites.
It's a simple scam, take a low capacity memory card costing a few cents and reprint it with a higher capacity label and a globally recognized trademark. Sell the items as authentic on eBay for up to $100.00 or more.
Amazon has a counterfeit problem. Amazon claims “Customers trust that they can always buy with confidence on Amazon.com” - but that’s not true. The fact is that counterfeit and replicas are sold on Amazon.
