Knockoff Report™ #613

Hey all, a lot of news this time around. Football season is starting and baseball playoffs are around the corner. So counterfeit sports merchandise and tickets are going to be regular topics in the news. Also, the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition (IACC) Fall Meeting is coming in a few weeks. This time they are in Marina del Rey, CA. My hood! It’s nice to be able to walk to a conference. Any folks who want to meet up, or have me as a tour guide, let me know.

    Hello Rob! I always look forward to your emails. I also have been reading other updates at forfeiture.gov. We here at Wolff’s Flea Market have declared this Counterfeit Sports Jersey Awareness Season. There is now a dedicated page on our website called “LEARN!” with a few informative collages for our vendors and customers to study. Attached is one that is starring my Cub fan dog.

    Regards, Sharon Wolff Wolff’s Flea Market Creative Media & Merchandise Consultant wolffs.com 847-524-9590

    SEE YOU AT THE FLEA!
