Our Anti-Counterfeiting team is proud to announce a successful raid organized on behalf of several well known perfume brand owners with the Istanbul Police Department against counterfeiters at 4 (four) different locations in Istanbul.
As a result of the raid the team was successful to seize 263,676 pieces of product, packaging, bottles ready to be filled and 280 liters of counterfeit fragrance. A photo belonging to one of the raided locations is shown below:
The raid has now caused criminal proceedings against the counterfeit manufacturers and prevented the flow of serious amount of counterfeit fragrance into the market which is mostly hazardous to consumer health. This is a very positive development in terms of IP enforcement with related to perfume brands considering that Turkey is very high up in the list of countries where the counterfeit perfume products are originated.
