It sounds like it's all going down in Hermes!
The company have just busted a massive counterfeit crime ring in Paris, who specialised in ripping off Hermes bags - unbelievably the ring were being assisted by the stores own employees!
Two employees have been fired and there are thought to be many more involved. They are believed to have sold over €18 million euros worth of gear to many different countries including America and Asia.
Hermes released this statement :
'“This operation concludes a one-year investigation following an Hermès
complaint based on clues and abnormal behavior identified through the
house’s internal monitoring systems. Hermès is very satisfied with the
efficient and diligent collaboration established with the national
gendarmerie in this case and reiterates its relentless commitment to
fighting counterfeiting. This action puts an end to the fraudulent
project in progress.”
