A 24-year-old woman from High Wycombe was handed a suspended jail sentence for selling fake designer gear online.

Chanel Lee, of Cock Lane, pleaded guilty to 13 offences under section 92 of the trademark act 1994 earlier this year, after she acquired the goods and added fake designer logos to them to sell them on.

Lee was given a six-month jail sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work and pay £1,000 towards prosecution costs.

It comes after Buckinghamshire and Surrey Trading Standards officers seized 120 fake products with 13 different brand names from her home in March.

The sham haul included five Chanel handbags, a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, two Superdry jumpers, a Tiffany bracelet, four Adidas tracksuits and a top, six Rolex watches, two Louis Vuitton handbags, 14 belts and a scarf; one Christian Dior belt, four Kenzo tops, two Hermes belts and two handbags, 58 Cartier rings, one necklace, a pair of earrings and five authenticity cards, seven Gucci handbags and two Barbour jackets.

Lee was also banned from advertising any products on a private profile online to allow Trading Standards to monitor her sales, to ensure she does not sell fake goods.

Judge Francis Sheridan said: “This has got to be a clear warning to those who deal in fake items that there is a price to be paid. Intellectual property has been stolen from the owner.”

Noel Brown, Buckinghamshire County Council’s cabinet member for community engagement and public health, said cheap, counterfeit goods gave shoppers “sub-standard quality” and “robbed legitimate manufacturers and traders of rightful income”.

He said: “I’m very concerned that our residents don't get taken in by traders who sell fake goods.

“Such products will generally not meet required safety standards, and that puts families at significant risk.”

He also warned shoppers to be wary about buying high value goods from unauthorised outlets, to watch for prices that are too good to be true, and to beware of cash-in-hand deals, saying that spelling mistakes on labels were a “give-away sign” of fake products.

He added: “Do you really want to be the one to give a dodgy gift at Christmas?”
