We meet each other through twitter and I was happy enough to speak about the online anti-counterfeit project: desenmascara.me
"The Man putting a stop to online counterfeits" does sounds a bit overwhelming, but let's try it :)
So far desenmascara.me has catched more than one thousand (active websites) of well known luxury brands. Some of them are being taking down slowly and another ones are still active.
If you would like to know how a fake website for any luxury brand looks like just go to the desenmascara.me twitter account to check it out all the data collected.
Online counterfeiting is a major issue for the big luxury brands, desenmascara.me is a tool that would help you to spot illegal entities selling counterfeit items online. If you are interested in more proactive ways to spot them you can contact with me.
