Nice bust - get these dirtbags off the street. Not only are they hurting trademarks, they're evading taxes by conducting an all cash business. Screw 'em.

Sorry, no curry in prison.

All foreign-born people from India, China, Middle East, who have bought homes on Long Island in the last 10 years should be investigated...where do you you think they got the big bucks to purchase these homes, on the North Shore of Long Island? working a normal 9-5? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, THEY got the money, from their countries,(and that's probably where all the counterfite(sic) products have been made),probably using slave labor in their countries, and brought cash over to to purchase 1-2million homes on Long Island....It doesn't take a genius, to figure out why the face of Long Island is changing...It's the poor and the rich of foreign countries that are ruining us....Am I the only one noticing this?????

Counterfeiters are thieves, BOTTOM LINE. They are stealing from legitmate companies, they are fooling the american consumers & they are cheating on taxes.

LOCK THEM UP!!!

Counterfeiters are thieves, you are right. However, why are people so desperate to BUY all this fake stuff? I say in addition to making it illegal to sell fake or knock-off pocketbooks, shoes, hats, etc. it should also be illegal to BUY the stuff. People know those pocketbooks they sell in hair salons or at those pocketbook parties are fake. They are directly contributing to an illegal enterprise and it should be stopped. If you want to have a GG, CC or LV hanging from your arm then PAY the price for the REAL thing. If it's not affordable for you...move on.

Is the $2 million value on the goods based on the prices for the real stuff? If not, how do you value a fake?

They most likely were doing this business in their old country. i hope they make them an example, this type of stuff has to stop. bad enough that good jobs are to find we don't need these low lifes putting people out of work.

Obviously they did well living in roslyn heights with $2million worth of counterfeits-but my question is why does someone need a real $400 pocketbook or whatever-so they like the style and they buy a quality knockoff-none the wiser right?
