Over $750K of Fake Sneakers and Goods Seized in Philippines This Year #FakeIsNotFLY
The counterfeit sneaker market continues to thrive, but customs agents in the Philippines are doing their part to keep bootlegs off of the streets with over $750,000 worth of fake sneakers and other goods seized so far this year. According to recent social media posts from official Philippines Bureau of Customs accounts touting the seizures, P40 million ($750,119) of counterfeit items including shoes, beauty products, and skimming devices were confiscated at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport since January. In the posts, piles of fake sneakers can be seen including the Sean Wotherspoon x Nike Air Max 1/97, Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 "Animal," Pharrell x Adidas NMD Hu, Adidas Yeezy Powerphase, and Fear of God x Vans Authentic.

Fake Nike Recruitment Campaign Goes Viral #FakeIsNotFLY
A fake Nike recruitment campaign promising free sneakers and clothing is making the rounds on social media, apparently fooling a number of people over the last 24 hours. Images posted by accounts such as @nike_recruitss ask users to follow and repost the flyers under the guise of becoming a Swoosh ambassador. The only problem? Nike is running no such promotion. "That is not an authorized Nike account," the brand confirmed in a tweet this afternoon. While the lure of free footwear and gear can be tempting, it's rare that brands, especially one of Nike's caliber, will crowdsource their ambassadors on social media.

Nike to Close Down 20 Fake Sneaker Websites #FakeIsNotFLY

After Off-White™ sued a number of fake retailers, Nike has become the latest brand to seriously clamp down on counterfeit sales. In a new lawsuit at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the Nike has won the rights to 20 fake sneaker websites which had been registered in bad faith and so have been transferred to the US-based label. The list of newly-acquired websites includes “nikeairmax97.com,” “shopsnikeukoutlet.com” and “nike-trademark.com.” While some of the sites are still online, many already redirecting to the official Nike web store. Prior to the ruling, all of the sites had previously been registered by one person.

(Disclaimer: As you can clearly see, I've crossed out, and chose NOT to link any of these particular sites to mine...FAKE is definitely not FLY*) "LOVE is LOVE" - STARRakaDAME
