Product Information:

Popular items and film characters are often the driving force for counterfeiters to create counterfeit products. The wildly popular Despicable Me film characters are no exception.

Counterfeit products bearing the trademarked Despicable Me characters, including watches, DVD's, clothing, shoes and other merchandise are widely available from China websites.

Dishonest sellers will often list counterfeit products on eBay, using the manufacturers stock (advertising) image, as "genuine" or "100% authentic" for sale to unsuspecting buyers. Counterfeit items are not authorized by Universal to use the Despicable Me characters and may be poor quality or dangerous products.
