Branch Chief Eric Zizelman said fake goods can fall apart or be dangerous. “You could have some sort of safety risk with that,” said Zizelman. “You are not going to get the same quality product as if you bought a genuine product.”

Katie Skerchock bought a counterfeit iPhone charger that almost set her house on fire. “This is a fire hazard, I mean who knows,” said Skerchock.

It can be really easy for companies to cover up fake products with logos that appear to be real. Zizelman said that it is easy to ship products in a generic box and not realize it is counterfeit until you open the product.
