Dear PB Fans
Pauls Boutique takes the protection of its brand and IP rights very seriously as they are extremely valuable assets. We have stopped many businesses and companies from dealing in counterfeit PB goods including getting goods seized and destroyed and successfully taking action in the Courts against counterfeiters. We will continue to take the necessary action to stamp out the theft of our IP. Please continue to notify us when you come across infringements.
To buy or not to buy a fake
People often think that buying a fake product will save them money. Well, that comes at a 'price'!
The organisations behind these counterfeit goods are very often linked to criminal organisations, involved in money laundering, drug trafficking or terrorism. Buying counterfeit goods funds such illegal activities. To make matters worse, these counterfeit products are often produced in third world conditions where child labour is prevalent. Do you want such people to have your personal details on their records?
Heres what could happen when you buy a counterfeit product from fake PB websites:
The pictures used on these fake websites are often taken from the official PB website and the product purchased seldom reflects the image and may sometimes be a different product from the one you ordered.
Your personal and payment details may be cloned. A customer who purchased from a fake website had her details cloned and used to create a counterfeit website. To avoid being the victim of identity theft, please ensure you only purchase from Pauls Boutiques Official Stockists.
Here are some of the experiences of customers who have come in contact with fake PB products.
Our efforts to combat on-line infringers have lead to a number of fake websites being taken down.
Pauls Boutique does not want its brand to be used in a way which dupes its customers or aids criminal activity. We need your help to stop this from happening. When purchasing Pauls Boutique products, please remember that Pauls Boutique does not supply any of the following:
- Market stalls
- Cheap luggage shops
- Market pitches outside shopping centres
- Ebay (although we are considering our own eBay outlet store in the future)
- Any website other than our official stockists which are listed here OFFICIAL STOCKISTS.
If you are in any doubt as to a PB product, please contact Pauls Boutique before you purchase so that we can advise whether
it is a fake or original PB product. Email: email@example.com
Thanks again for FIGHTING FAKES.
