Vaudra Ltd. has completed an investigation into 130 Chinese websites selling fake The North Face and Polo Ralph Lauren apparel to U.S. customers through 6,500 Internet domain names. The investigation is the first of its kind, one of which investigative techniques applied went beyond any obvious or routine domain characteristic associations. Conducted on behalf of the law firm Greenberg Traurig in New York, legal observes are quoted as saying that this is the largest case of its kind. Court documents that were unsealed reveal that the organized Internet ring has moved $780,000 a month in fake apparel. The court ruling allows defendant accounts to be frozen in U.S. banks and U.S. third-party payment providers. The case was reported by Women’s Wear Daily and is the third Vaudra Ltd. investigation published by the WWD within the last five years.
