High end and well known designer brands have long been subjected to fraudulent reproduction and counterfeit. This practice is particularly prevalent in Southeast Asia, where one can buy “knock offs” of just about any product imaginable. This practice is not only criminal but has cost the manufacturing industry billions of dollars worldwide.
Global Credit Solutions understands that counterfeiting has risen to epic proportions, so much so that it is not only the high end products that are being counterfeited but also small and medium sized brands.
Every time an illegal counterfeit product is sold, it not only hurts your company financially, but can also ruin your reputation by putting inferior products on the market that have your logo or trademark on them. This is why stamping out this practice is imperative to the long-term health of your business. It also sends a message of zero tolerance to would-be offenders. GCS offers a number of investigative services that will help protect your brand from counterfeit.
