DON'T BE A UGG MUG
Standards officers in Sefton are warning residents not to be a mug
when it comes to UGGs.Officers have recently been
contacted by a number of consumers across the borough who have
bought UGG boots on the internet only to find out they are fakes.
One consumer who bought a fake pair was even offered a refund of
just 10 per cent of their money back as 'compensation'
by the fraudsters.Sefton Council Trading Standards are warning
residents not to be fooled by cheap prices on the internet when
buying UGG boots, especially in the run up to Christmas.
Currently, fake UGG boots are being offered for sale at a reduced
rate by web traders due to a 'seasonal sale'.
Trading Standards manager Andrew Naisbitt said:- "Sadly there
are several counterfeit UGG boots offered for sale via the Internet.
The best action consumers can take is to visit the UGG website and
contact them directly and use their site to identify whether or not
the trader is a genuine distributor. Genuine Ugg boots retail from
more than £100 and those that seem like a bargain, more often than
not, will only be fakes. Authenticity cards, packaging, care
booklets and dust bags are all copied by the counterfeiters so
please don't presume that just because the boots come with all the
UGG extras they are authentic. Please don't get stung by a scam like
this in the run up to Christmas."
