Just a general question. There is a web site that is selling fake goods, the goods are sent from Taiwan, the goods are offered through a .co.uk web site. If I'm not mistaken this seems like a loophole as they probably don't come under the distance selling regulations. There are no contact details on the web site, only the usual form to fill in, but doing a whois trace on the web site reveals a registrants address.
My question is, is it worth telling Trading Standards of this scam? And what other party would be interested in knowing about it? And would a Registrant be liable for the activities on the web site?
Thankfully, I haven't fallen for any scam like this because I'm always weary of sites that don't give proper contact details, like an address, but I do know a party who has and it's not just the loss of money but the disappointment of receiving substandard goods, especially when kids are involved.
That's a good point, the company that are producing the fake goods are Disney products, seeing as Disney are a global company with lots of money then they won't be best please at losing revenue.
I will pass on all your comments to the person concerned, as they are on another forum.
I'm not sure if I should put a link into the site concerned at the moment without guidance from the FE, I don't want to get this site into trouble if the published site take umbridge, although the link has been published on the other forum.
