May 2, 2017

imagesH6YSS6QIU.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations, at Charleston seaport seized an estimated $1.1 million in counterfeit mobile phone accessories, including phone cases, chargers, cables, and headphones on March 14. The merchandise arrived into the port from China and was destined for upstate South Carolina. The shipment details were scrutinized and it was determined that the cargo was worth a closer look. After the customs examination and appraisal, it was revealed that 85,000 individual accessories bearing images of various retailers were being used without permission.

“I’m proud of the work our officers and import specialists are doing to keep counterfeit merchandise, some of which could be dangerous to consumers, out of U.S. commerce,” said Charleston Acting Area Port Director Joanne Fogg. “CBP continues to work hard to protect legitimate businesses from unlawful use of their intellectual property.”
