The company through the contracting of the services of private detectives can know who falsifies its brand, how it makes these fakes and what is the mechanism of distribution and sale.
“Faced with the discovery of the falsification of a brand or product – through tracking and recording images – our mission as detectives is to bring it to the attention of the State security bodies, because this type of behavior is a crime,” says Alonso.
The most exclusive brands, with greater involvement in the luxury fashion and IT sector are usually the most affected when it comes to counterfeiting.
“The origin of these copies are China and the countries of the East. In addition, we have detected that the Internet has now become the refuge of counterfeiters, where copies of T-shirts and sports shoes, underwear, accessories, jewelry or medicines are sold “, concludes Alonso.
