A brush with the law

Fake "Tangle Teasers" seized
Customs officers in Montpellier seized 16000 hair brushes which had been imported from China. This follows the seizure of over 6000 toothbrushes by the same douaniers. The customs contacted the owners of the brand names who confirmed that the imports were fake and the counterfeit brushes were destroyed. It is estimated that the fakes would have cost 240000 euros to the genuine brands.
