Wow, that was chilling, especially the fake medicines.

They also showed tons of rolls of faked handbag fabrics like LV denim, D&G stamp dies, etc. Now I can truly see how these fakes are mass produced.

Great show, thanks for the heads up.

It really is like fighting a losing battle, isn't it? Every aspect of that show was very enlightening, and I found the submarines that counterfeiters use to transport illegal goods to be unbelievable, too. I just can't imagine myself getting my medicine, as expensive as it is, on the internet.

Thanks for reading my mind - I saw this last night and I'm like "I gotta post about this." :tup:

Disgusting - I saw all those fake LVs and I wanted to SCREAM. I just spent a chunk of change yesterday buying authentic at the Century City LV store and those cheap disgusting knockoffs....just makes me sick. :yucky:

I'm sure they'll re-run it again at some point for those who missed it....
