The Aichi woman referred prosecutors for selling counterfeit nail products

A 31-year-old office worker from Aichi Prefecture was referred to prosecutors on Monday on suspicion of violating trademark law for selling counterfeit nail products bearing the logos of luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton.

She admitted to the accusation, telling police: “I knew it was fake, but I kept doing it to make ends meet.”

Last September, the suspect allegedly possessed 2,301 nail polish stickers and parts with the logos of Louis Vuitton and Chanel at her home with the intention of selling them.

Police reported that she had purchased counterfeit items from Chinese websites and resold them through social media and flea market apps. Between November 2022 and September last year, she sold about 2,600 items to about 200 people, earning about ¥800,000 ($5,100).

In January 2023, Louis Vuitton police received a complaint about the counterfeit goods. Further investigation revealed that the suspect only sold items with fake logos, and not genuine products.
