Holiday Hoax 2012

Over three days, December 11 to 13, 2012, federal authorities at a Los Angeles-area cargo processing facility interdicted hundreds of parcels containing suspected counterfeit goods in stepped up enforcement actions as part of Operation Holiday Hoax, an international effort targeting the sale and importation of counterfeit and pirated products. The enforcement surge, conducted by officers from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), resulted in the interception of a wide variety of suspected counterfeit merchandise, ranging from headphones and sports jerseys to designer leather goods and cell phone accessories. The goal of the enforcement actions is not only to protect the companies that make copyrighted products, but also the unwitting buyers who get duped by these counterfeit products.
