they will probably send you your package with some broken watch parts and ripped up clothes. Either that or a nice note or something. Customs people like fvcking with people.

I have a client who has a problem with counterfeit goods. People are making knockoffs of his brand and selling them on ebay. After dicking around with cancelling ebay auctions and stuff, we've finally settled on this strategy:

1) We let the ebay auction stand. We don't try to cancel it.

2) After the auction closes, we wait a few days and then contact PayPal and have them undo the payment transaction. Usually this is after the counterfeiter has shipped the products. So they've shipped the goods, but have no money.

3) We contact US Customs and have them confiscate the shipment based on the fact that the goods infringe on a US registered trademark.

This seems to work pretty good so far - the counterfeiters are dropping off of ebay. They get tired of shipping product and getting screwed by Pay Pal.

I kid, nothing's going to happen, maybe a warning, the worst part is if they rewrapped it like crap and it comes broken, then they will blame the shipping company, the shipping company will blame custom, then they will asked you if you brought insurance, if so then they'll tell you to get contact them, insurance will tell you they don't pay for open items, then you'll call custom back, two months later, they'll call and say it was already broken when they check it. You are screwed but not by a guy name bubba, Anyway, expect the worst.

Thank you.

Reed, you are tampling on property rights laws (both international and US). You are also fvcking with US Trade laws. If you don't like it, write a letter to your reporesentative. If you don't understand it, get educated. And if you don't care, then .
