Fake tech gear has infiltrated the U.S. government CNN BUSINESS

A record number of tech products used by the U.S. military and dozens of other federal agencies are fake. That opens up a myriad of national security risks, from dud missiles to short-circuiting airplane parts to cyberespionage.

Despite laws designed to crack down on counterfeiters, suppliers labeled by the U.S. government as "high risk" are increasing their sales to federal agencies. Their presence in government's supply chain soared 63% over the past decade, according to a new study released by IHS, a supply chain management consultancy.

Illegal vapes seized from shops in Dewsbury and Huddersfield BBC NEWS

Thousands of illegal vapes and cigarettes have been seized from shops in Kirklees. Trading Standards and West Yorkshire Police said officers had recovered 3,000 vapes, worth up to £40,000, as well as 77,420 cigarettes.

Shops in Dewsbury and Huddersfield town centres were visited as part of the operation on 18 July and 8 August. Sgt Amanda Holroyd said: "Cash from the sale of such goods can often be used to directly fund organised crime." Also seized were 235 pouches of tobacco, 80 bottles of counterfeit perfume and 38 items of counterfeit clothing.

Apple complains Amazon's US site is selling fake products BBC NEWS

Apple has complained of a "flood" of counterfeit goods masquerading as its products being sold on

The claim relates to items sold via Amazon's "fulfilment" scheme, whereby third parties list their goods on the retail giant's site, store their inventory in its warehouses and rely on it for deliveries. Apple warns the alleged fakes are potentially life-threatening. But it is suing one of the vendors rather than Amazon itself.

The defendant, New York-based Mobile Star LLC, could not be reached for comment and has yet to file its own legal paperwork.

"Mobile Star has been deceiving Apple customers and putting their safety at risk by selling counterfeit power adapters," an Apple spokesman told the BBC.


Counterfeiting in Industry & Electronics

As a consequence of the booming demand for a diverse collection of products, counterfeiting has become rampant in the industrial and electronics sector. Fraud usually takes many forms, from brandjacking to selling cheaper products in counterfeit packaging. Sometimes, these counterfeiters go as far as reproducing almost identical products in factories, making it virtually impossible for the untrained eye to differentiate between the genuine products and their fake copies.

Not only do these malpractices amount to a substantial loss of revenue, they also constitute unfair competition which makes it difficult for brands to penetrate new markets. Additionally, the activities of counterfeiters go on to have debilitating effects on the image of brands. Unsuspecting customers usually end up paying high prices for a faulty counterfeit product, leading them to associate poor quality to your brand. Do you sometimes consider the countless online videos showing electronic products catching fire unexpectedly? In most cases, the investigation will later prove that the products were indeed fake. By that time this discovery is made to set the records straight, the damage to the brand image would have already been done. Finally, especially in certain sectors where security is of prime importance, faulty counterfeit products can harm, injure or even cause death. It appears that there are practically no safe distribution channels! Entire geographical areas seem to be gravely affected as there is simply no way to be sure of buying authentic products, even when one is paying high prices.

A tag has been affixed to this product, giving it a unique and impossible to duplicate identifier. A simple photo taken of the Cypheme noiseprint tag makes it possible to know the authenticity of this electornic product with certainty and confidence all in the space of 5 seconds! The authentication process can be done via the brand’s or Cypheme’s WeChat and Facebook accounts.
