And another one bites the dust!

Hermes was pleased to announce last week that with the help of French national police, they successfully broke up a crime ring responsible for creating and selling counterfeit Birkin bags.

The fashion house said in a statement:

“This operation concludes a one-year investigation following an Hermes complaint based on clues and abnormal behavior identified through the house’s internal monitoring systems. Hermes is very satisfied with the efficient and diligent collaboration established with the national gendarmerie in this case and reiterates its relentless commitment to fighting counterfeiting. This action puts an end to the fraudulent project in progress.”

They suspect that these counterfeit bags were sold throughout Europe, the U.S. and Asia and estimated one branch of the ring made $22 million in sales.

Dayum!

What’s more troubling is two Hermes employees were part of the operation and the family-owned company suspected others may be involved too, which resulted in a dozen more arrests.

Now that the ring is closed, attention seekers photographers have no choice but to burn real Birkins in their shoots!

Ha!
