Counterfeit Spyder Apparel From Russia Seized In Finland
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 October, 2005 : - - According to SGB, a shipment of more than 1,000 counterfeit Spyder jackets and pants was stopped at the Finnish border. In late August, the Finnish National Board of Customs notified the company of a Spyder-branded jacket and pant shipment arriving from Russia that they suspected to be counterfeit. After receiving verification from Spyder that the merchandise was indeed counterfeit, Finnish Customs seized the goods. It is believed the product was headed for distribution points across the European Union, a substantial market for the brand. Spyder filed a criminal complaint in Finland vs the Finnish importer of the goods. Once the case is concluded, the counterfeit merchandise will be destroyed.
