More Counterfeit Products Shipped to U.S.

A Jan. 24 report by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security submitted to President Donald Trump recommends that e commerce platforms and third party marketplaces take more active roles in monitoring, detecting and preventing the trafficking of counterfeit products in the U.S. The report comes after Trump signed a memorandum in April that aimed to enlist the private sector in cracking down on counterfeit goods sold through online platforms like Amazon, eBay and Alibaba.

Between July and September 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection conducted Operation Mega Flex to inspect shipments from China and Hong Kong and look for counterfeit products that could be sold via e commerce.
