The International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition Inc., states that every year, trademark counterfeiting costs American businesses hundreds of billions of dollars. It is important to recognize that almost all trademark counterfeiting schemes are also responsible for generating cash for underworld or black market organizations that may have direct ties to crimes involving narcotic trafficking, money laundering and even terrorism. For this reason, it is recommended that private investigators be hired to conduct all trademark counterfeit investigations in order to get in-depth brand protection & trademark usage information.
High end and well known designer brands have long been subjected to fraudulent reproduction and counterfeiting. Anyone can purchase “knock offs” of just about any product imaginable. This practice is not only criminal but costs the manufacturing industry billions of dollars worldwide.

Nathans Investigations private investigators undertake many brand and counterfeit investigations & has a dedicated Anti-Counterfeiting division combating these crimes for companies worldwide.
