submitted on February 8, 2011 by YanBz in "Products / Gadgets"
It is amazing how real they look and how many there was confiscated. I wonder how these were intended to be sold, online or out on the street.

More than $10 million in counterfeit iPods, iPhones and other items have been seized from a sophisticated downtown warehouse operation in a theft case begun by Los Angeles Port Police.

      The old saying holds true, "If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

      What about all the bargain hunting?! Smile I wonder who reported the "sophisticated downtown warehouse operation" - someone who didn't get their share? or an iPod or two...

      Well, everything is good in moderation and the same applies to bargain hunting.

    You know I've ordered quite a few knock offs from sites like Dealextreme, FocalPrice, and many more and I've not had too many issues. I think the main thing you have to look at is reviews. Sites like those like to submit fake reviews sometimes but they are always rough English. If you look around you can find good deal on counterfeits if it doesn't bother you to own a knock-off.
