The crime of counterfeiting not only robs our customers by selling you inferior goods, but also steals from our designers and other colleagues, whose hard work is wasted by customers deceived into buying cheap imitations.  If counterfeiters get away with their crimes, everyone loses except them.  The impact of counterfeiting is immense. If this issue were just about GTP and our customers, it would be very serious.  However, it is far greater than that — our employees and ultimately, Ghana’s economy is seriously harmed by this crime.
