Better Business Bureau (BBB) has received thousands of complaints from people who have shopped for goods online and received counterfeits instead of what they ordered. Sales of counterfeit goods have exploded worldwide in recent years, and many of them pose significant health and safety risks. Organized criminals operating out of China are behind the vast majority of this fraud. These fraudsters are supported by a large ecosystem of groups that arrange for credit card processing. Without access to the payment cards system, most of this fraud could not operate.
