1 million face masks labeled as Japanese busted as Chinese

In the Bangkok suburb of Samut Prakan, police raided a warehouse where they found 1 million face masks that have been labelled as being from Japan when really they have been produced and shipped from China. The economic crime division of the police uncovered the Chinese masks, with an estimated value of about 3 million baht, throughout a raid in a warehouse in the Phraeksa area of the province.
The police busted the warehouse with the counterfeit Chinese masks that had been labelled as if they have been from Japan. They discovered that a number of the masks even had train labels from Japan on them although they were actually imported from China.
The importers likely faked the labelling and import details of the masks to make low cost Chinese knockoffs seem like more valuable Japanese merchandise. Police consider that the face masks that had been manufactured in China were of inferior high quality with substandard materials. Accredited labelling from Japan was probably fake so that they might be passed off as larger high quality merchandise with Japanese approval that might fetch a a lot larger value when sold.
Hidden tied to the fake Chinese masks were formally introduced on the time of the raid yesterday, the investigation is ongoing and prosecution and charges are likely imminent..
