    Currently i sold couple of brands products. But some of my customers not like it even though i added statement on my website that item is refurbished..

    So then he threatened to lodge a complaint to company

    Then i got an email

    "We needs your cooperation in order to try to prevent the further distribution of counterfeit goods in the United States . If you do not cooperate, we will consider pursuing legal action. Please contact me as soon as possible with your assurances that you will stop selling counterfeit goods, and with any and all information that you have regarding these products.

    I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible, but in any event in no more than three days from the date of this message."

    Were you selling fakes ??? If you did then you have to quickly stop doing it, refund money and detroy it (in UK even advertising fakes is a criminal act, so I guess it would be similar in USA)

    Did you sold fake ?
    If you did the I would seek a legal advice in your position as the buyer can make you a lot of trouble.

    Dear Sir or Madam:
    I represent company Corporation, owner of the well-known shit company trademark in connection with our products. We received an inquiry from a customer who purchased shit from your store at shit.com . We were able to determine that the product was not made by us and is an illegal counterfeit. We see that your site is also offering a number of other shit products for sale, which we presume are counterfeit as well. Selling counterfeit goods can subject you to serious civil liability and criminal penalties (up to $2 million in fines and/or up to 10 years in prison).
    We demands that you immediately:
    (1) cease and desist from selling counterfeit shit products (and send us any inventory still in your possession)
    (2) provide us with all available contact information for the party or parties who supplied you with the counterfeit shit products
    (3) provide us with all available information regarding the shipment of these products to you from your supplier - what carrier was used, tracking number, if any, how many products were shipped in the package, the address from which the products were shipped, copies of any documents accompanying the shipment (particularly customs declaration documents)
    (4) provide contact information for parties who purchased the counterfeit products from you, or provide proof that you notified all such parties that the products were counterfeit
    (5) provide an accounting of your profits, and payment to shit Corporation for such profits
    We needs your cooperation in order to try to prevent the further distribution of counterfeit goods in the United States . If you do not cooperate, we will consider pursuing legal action. Please contact me as soon as possible with your assurances that you will stop selling counterfeit shit goods, and with any and all information that you have regarding these products.
    I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible, but in any event in no more than three days from the date of this message.
    Sincerely,

    Well it is a serious offense and you were providing false information to your clients including charge of importing fakes with intend for sell with withholding that information.

    You can't plays stupid if you've imported them.


    Selling that kind a goods is always a gamble, it is illegal and sooner or later the law enforcment or brand owner will knock to you doors.
