Avoiding the Black Friday and Cyber Monday Counterfeit Trap
Millions of shoppers are set to flood high street and online retailers this week with the arrival of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

However, as shoppers head online to snap up the latest bargains, they could be leaving themselves vulnerable to purchasing counterfeit items.
