Shoppers in Fife have been urged to be vigilant against fake goods in the run-up to Christmas.
Fife’s Trading Standards team has issued advice after recent seizures of counterfeit goods including clothing, footwear, handbags, makeup and perfume.
Products included high-value brands, such as Adidas, Nike, Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, Michael Kors, MAC and GHD. Service manager Dawn Adamson said: “We are commonly seeing fake products being sold cheaply on social media sites.
“Sellers dealing in counterfeit goods are criminals.”
