Kylie Kristen Jenner is an American reality television personality, best known for appearing on the E! reality television series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Kylie heard that her popular Lip Kits had been counterfeited from complaints sent to her on social media. The fakes were sold on discount websites. An investigation revealed that some of the fake Lip Kits contained glue and gasoline and also caused allergic reactions. Klyie is urging everyone to buy her product from her website:
Shoe designer Christian Louboutin, well-known for the red sole on his women’s shoes, has a zero tolerance policy for counterfeits. As part of its Stop Fakes Program, Louboutin went out in force over the Christmas season:

Beware, there’s a new scam using social networking sites to lure users to visit fake Ray-Ban e-shops to buy discount sunglasses. More than likely a victim will be directed to one of the hundreds of websites that sell Ray-Ban and other brand sunglasses for super cheap prices, typically under $20. In fact if you did a a google search for “cheap Ray-Ban sunglasses,” you’d come up with hundreds of websites selling Ray-Bans and other brands for under $20.
Don’t be fooled, they’re all counterfeit.

I found this news note very interesting: the factory owners in this small coastal town, nicknamed Fake-Nike Town, in Fujien Province spent years studying Nike’s manufacturing techniques and even used promotional videos supplied by Nike as a production guide. Today the local economy is devoted to producing fake Nike sneakers for export.
