Buying a fake designer bag could Carry a $1,000 Fine or Jail term.
You might want to reconsider purchasing a counterfeit bag should you ever visit New York!
City Councilwoman Margaret Chin proposed a new bill that would impose penalties of up to a year in jail or a $1000 fine for buying knockoffs.
She said, “I urge visitors that come to New York to come for the authenticity, not to buy these fake bags or electronics…We have local designers that create unique items at affordable prices, and they’re available. So don’t just come here for the knockoffs.”
Apparently if the bill passes, New York will be the first U.S. city to criminalize their purchase.
