Have you had the situation to buy a counterfeit without knowing?
Well i think counterfeiters mostly target products with a high profit margin. This is usually the case with luxury products as with those consumers pay a high add on for the brand name and the image that this brand represents. Additionally I think that counterfeiters rather target bigger and more known brands. As an example counterfeiters rather copy Rolex watches than Glashütte, which is a smaller and significantly more expensive watch producer. However, I'm trying to see how big the market for high quality counterfeits is, with which consumers might not be able to tell the difference. This market is usually composed differently to the street market for eg fake watches, where prices are usually much lower and all buyers are aware that this is a fake product. Those products are rather sold in shops. So I'm trying to find people who have experienced just this situation...
