It’s not just hoverboards being seized by border control staff, but wearable technology is under scrutiny, as more individuals aim to sell counterfeit products overseas.
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has seized $35,000 worth in counterfeit smart wristbands in Philadelphia, the law enforcement agency announced late Tuesday.
The CBP confiscated 350 wristbands, from a shipment which arrived on December 4, 2015. The delivery came from Hong Kong, and was seized by the agency on January 4, 2016. The CBP did not specify the particular type of wristbands involved.
The agency estimates that if the 350 wearables were genuine, this would have retailed for an estimated total of $35,000, or $100 per wristband.
