Fake purse purveyors to pay $800G to city to settle suit

Owners of a major hub for counterfeit goods in Chinatown have agreed to pay New York City $800,000 in a civil settlement.

The nuisance abatement case was brought after police raided the sellers in 2008. A two-month probe by Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Office of Special Enforcement yielded dozens of undercover purchases of illegal counterfeit goods like handbags, perfume, clothing and jewelry.

The goods included fake Gucci, Dior, Prada, Rolex, Fendi and Burberry.

The Bloomberg administration raid shuttered 32 storefronts in the building accused of selling counterfeit goods. Under the terms of the settlement, the property owners must use the building for legitimate purposes.
