Just one question...WHY?   I mean, of all the things to counterfit, why laundry soap ?  It is not like it is SOOOO expensive that a counterfit would be that much cheaper (I would think)


 

@stazgirl

Saw this on the news this morning. They said that it is very profitable and you don't face the serious charges that you would for something like selling drugs.

I don't mean to laugh - but I can't imagine buying laundry Detergent from the back of a truck or the trunk of someone's car 

 

Counterfeit products are a very serious issue.   Thanks for this thread 


 

       ....or at flea market or from Craig's list .....the place one would expect to find counterfeit products.

Re: Counterfeit laundry detergent

I've never seen laundry detergent sold anywhere other than a market or Target type of store.  And I've never bought anything out of the back of a truck.  Where do these sales take place?

Well now a days they make so much  counterfeit clothing,purses and anything else you can think of to buy. So now we have a knock off Tide to wash the counterfeit goods in. Boy China is making a fortune!  Rub a Dub Dub!

Re: Counterfeit laundry detergent

It IS odd .... I understand small lightweight things being counterfitted .... vitamins, handbags, belts. watches, jewelry, etc etc.    

 

However, a 5 gallon tub of Fake Tide has to weigh ... what? .... about 10 pounds?   Try lugging a few dozen of those around to the local flea market.   Sheesh!
