​Discount luxury items

You spot a great online deal on a high-end designer bag, leather jacket or pair of heels. It’s tempting to put the item in your cart, but don’t. Discount luxury items often turn out to be cheap knockoffs. In fact, some luxury brands have sued counterfeiters in China and other countries for deceiving customers. Protect yourself by buying only from authorized retailers, the anti-counterfeiting U.S. government site StopFakes.gov recommends.
