Mulberry Bags: Police Destroy £750,000 worth

by | 12th, September 2014

ONE little story about the police destroying £750,000’s worth of fake Mulberry bags. The problem with this story being that if they were real ones then they wouldn’t have been destroyed but beause they were fake ones they’re not worth £750,000 .

Dealers attempted to smuggle more than 1,000 fake designer handbags worth more than £750,000 through Manchester Airport.

The fake Mulberry handbags were discovered by Border Force officers in a crackdown on counterfeit goods that arrived from Hong Kong.

In total, 1,100 bags worth £752,000 were seized by the officers on July 18. All the bags have now been destroyed.

This is a standard problem in descriptions of fakes, counterfeits and the rip offs of various electronic goods. Even with illegal drugs: they always value the stuff they’ve confiscated at the full price of whatever it is. And that’s just not right: precisely because they are fake, or digital copies, or illegal drugs in bulk, then they’re not actually worth the full price of the real goods.
