Texas Customs Agents Seize $4.3M Worth of Fake Jordans, Yeezys
Fraudsters stand to make a fortune off these knock-off brands.
Seize $4.3M in Fake Jordans, Yeezys ...Agents Say It's From China8/10/2020 2:20 PM PTUS Customs & Border PatrolFederal agents say a massive shipment of footwear on its way to Mexico contained millions of dollars worth of fake shoes -- including some coveted, rare Jordans and Yeezys.
U.S Customs and Border Protection announced the bust their agents down at the Dallas/Fort Worth port this week -- where they seized a haul which included over 1,800 pairs of phony Limited Edition Dior X Air Jordan 1 kicks that were heading to retailers south of the border.
These specific shoes retail for about $2,000 a pop on the market, and all in all ... the feds say the shipment was worth upwards of $4.3 million.The agents add that the boxes -- about 60 of which were targeted, all coming from China -- had all the markings of a scam ... bad packaging, poor quality and the officers' previous experience with this sort of thing told them the shoes weren't legit, so they halted them.
The Jordans weren't the only sneakers in the mix -- as you can see in the photo above, it looks like there are some Yeezy 350 Boosts scattered throughout as well ... knock-offs, we should note. USCBP says several different shoes with Nike and Adidas logos were spotted.
They also say they gave the shipment's cosigner the chance to submit proof of Trademark Licensing before taking it outta their hands. Obviously, their paperwork wasn't up to snuff. Read more: TMZ »
Trump again casts doubt on whether he'll accept election result in latest unfounded attack on voting process
President Donald Trump said Thursday that he's not sure November's election will be 'honest' because of the use of unsolicited ballots, extending his baseless assertion that widespread mail-in voting is rife with fraud and again casting doubt on if he will accept the results of the election.
They should give them to ppl who need shoes Everythings manufactured in china, they are probably real, just not sold through certified retailers. We shouldnt be buying these brands anyhow..2 dollars to make and we pay 200.00. Gosh were stupid😂😂😂 I bet the overseas thinks we are so dumb. Cómprate de esos, hugo_ochoa
All cap Nice job Texas They pretty bad fakes too 😭 Vechain could be a solution for this. Nike jasonrockwood vechainofficial Fugly shoes. Have a local manufacturer rename them, that is put a generic name on the products, and sell them to generate some money. Give people in the area some work, if it's at all safe to do.
