SEIZURES OF FAKE goods may not be going down – in fact, they are up eightfold in just two years in Northern Ireland, it has emerged.

Black-market fake Rolex watches, Ugg boots and counterfeit branded underwear are among the items that have been found on sale across the north, according to the Irish News today.

The internet makes buying fake goods, or being fooled into buying them, more prevalent. The paper notes that websites can fool consumers into buying fake goods, often by making the counterfeit versions only slightly cheaper than the real thing.
