Counterfeit iPods are hot ticket items in Los Angeles

I don’t get counterfeit products, but it seems that someone in California has $10 million reasons to love making counterfeit iPods. The Los Angeles Police have confiscated $10 million dollars worth of counterfeit iPods, ranging in colors and models. Two brothers were selling fat nanos, skinny nanos, green nanos and black nanos to the tune of $7 million dollars already.

The funny thing is that the police think that these nanos were shipped into the US as replacement parts, and then reassembled in the US and sold as complete devices. If that’s the case, it’s going to make it difficult to stop others from doing the same, considering the parts could be legitimate replacement parts from factories or resellers.

Just remember, if you’re buying electronics online, or from someone reselling it, think long and hard about the device before you hand over the cash. It could be fake. If it’s too good to be true, you’re probably being taken to the cleaners.

Don’t be a sucker.
