Counterfeiters are largely based in Asia and third-world Countries. This makes them diiulcfft to locate and eliminate. They distribute via illegal channels, import their merchandise through customs under the radar, manufacture in small fishing towns in Asia. It's a hush, hush manufacturing process Reported to be backed by large amounts of money, various mob-esque organizations. They purchase authentic bags, Even $50,000.00 one of a kind designs, take them apart piece by piece and then try to duplicate the design. It's a complicated, illegal, scary business.LVMH works feverishly to shut down these counterfeiting cells and various websites, but unfortunately, once one website is shut down another is created in it's place. As long as there is a market for luxury goods, there will be a market for counterfeit merchandise. Louis Vuitton has been dealing with counterfeiters since 1888. When people cannot afford a high-end item, they seek an inferior copy because they think that people cannot tell the difference. They couldn't me more wrong.
