What happened to chanel-jewelry.com?
The store once appearing at this domain name was selling replica handbags, wallets, scarves, sunglasses, shoes, boots, belts, watches and jewelry including necklaces, pendants, bracelets, rings and earrings. After Chanel, along with Louis Vuitton and Tiffany, took legal action against the site, a judge ordered the store closed and its operator to pay Chanel over $ 1,600,000.00 in damages. Further, to prevent the domain name from being used for the same illegal purpose again, the judge ordered the domain transferred to Chanel’s control.
What should I know about replicas?
Unfortunately, Chanel cannot provide the public with detailed information on how to identify genuine Chanel products since counterfeiters could use this information to create better copies and further deceive the public. The only way you can be certain you are purchasing a genuine Chanel product is to purchase it from an authorized Chanel retailer.
