How do they come up with these hugely over estimated valuations of fake goods? NO one arrrested is nothing surprising. Slap on the wrist, donation to the brown bear's retirement fund and go on your way....

Where and when is the great bom fire to destroy these 100,000 sized counterfeit clothing?  If not, than be sure a great deal comes back here or there on the market for sale. There is money to make. TIT
