Controlled test purchases or trap purchases directly from the traders’ premises or from online commerce sites, are often the best way to collect evidence that a trader is selling counterfeit products or infringing a trademark.
Our team prepares test purchase evidence packages and reports. These include the name of the target or trader, types of counterfeit products on offer, the known quantities that are involved and provide photographs of the products, its packaging and labels enabling our clients to take action with the authorities if required. e-Payment evidence often provides additional financial and banking information helping to identify the source of money.
The information and evidence gathered from market surveys and test purchase programmes, equips Clients with the reliable evidence packages they require to take further legal action.
