Chinatown and eBay may be the prom king and queen of the faux trade but they're not the only ones ruffling feathers. In the first of a wave of suits, Fendi has just settled a claim with Sam's Club, a division of Wal-mart, that it had been selling counterfeit Fendi bags. The settlement amount has been undisclosed but the suit charged the warehouse with selling "significant quantities" of items valued "in the millions of dollars," according to WWD. Perhaps most upset by the news should be Burlington Coat Factory, Filene's Basement, Annie Sez, Ashley Reed and Colton International who are next up on Fendi's list, each with similiar lawsuits pending.
Counterfeiters will often misspell designer names. Check for letters that are swapped or a letter that is capitalized that shouldn’t be, and vice versa.
