LONDON — Designer resale site Vestiaire Collective has undertaken a study highlighting counterfeit purchases in the online marketplace that lays bare the numbers of women who have been duped into purchasing fake items thinking they were buying genuine ones.
According to the report, 61 percent of female online-marketplace shoppers have been misled into purchasing counterfeit designer goods, or knew at least one person who had accidentally bought a fake designer item through the Internet. Furthermore, 66 percent of women admitted they did not possess the knowledge to tell the difference between a counterfeit product and a genuine item.
