Counterfeiting can be the cause of failed companies, destruction of household names, failure of venture and loss of customers. The quality and result of counterfeit goods is getting better and better as new methods and equipment is becoming more readily available. Sometimes a company will produce counterfeit goods that are practically indistinguishable from the original product, although in the majority of cases a detailed look can reveal the forgery fairly easily. An Investigation carried out by an experienced private investigator can uncover a counterfeiting operation leading to legal action taken by law enforcement.
Counterfeit products pose a risk of “brand dilution”, which results in brands losing their premium status and their market niche. Ultimately, customers start to lose interest in the brand. Low-quality counterfeits can also harm the buyer’s health, which damages the brand’s reputation.
