EXCLUSIVE: How British tourists buying counterfeit replica handbags in Dubai are funding Kim Jong-un’s nuclear missile program

British tourists have been warned against buying counterfeit luxury goods in Dubai because they could be funding North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and his nuclear missile program. Experts say many of the fake handbags, purses and Rolex watches on sale in ‘secret shops’ in Dubai are believed to be have been counterfeited in North Korea. The industry is worth millions of pounds and brings in desperately needed hard currency for the Pyongyang regime.

The UN Security Council has begun drawing up even tighter sanctions after North Korea conducted its fifth and biggest missile test last week. South Korea accused Kim Jong-un of ‘maniacal recklessness’ and the North Korean ambassador to London was called to the Foreign Office to be told how seriously Britain viewed the test as a breach of the non-proliferation treaty. Thousands of tourists from Britain and other Western countries visit Dubai every year and many end up being lured to hidden Aladdin’s Caves full of items which are the spitting image of the genuine articles.

A Mail Online reporter visited the Al Karama market area in downtown Dubai recently and, after dropping several hints, was told a car would pick him up and take him to a secret location.The shopkeeper said the police checked his premises every day and he could not risk keeping counterfeit goods on display.

The reporter was whisked away to an anonymous block of flats and taken up to the third floor.There the door to a non-descript apartment opened onto a veritable Aladdin’s Cave with Fendi, Gucci, Chanel and Louis Vuitton replica handbags and purses on display along with imitation Rolex watches and other luxury items.

The quality of counterfeiting was exceptional and only an expert would have been able to tell the difference. The replica bags and replica watches were sold for a fraction of the normal price. The merchants were Iranian and, when asked where the bags were actually made, one said: ‘Korea’.

Asked if that meant North Korea, he replied: ‘Yes’. The goods are thought to be brought to Dubai from North Korea via Iran, which is just on the other side of the Straits of Hormuz, although it is not clear if the authorities in Tehran are involved.

Bloomie’s Thieves Try Using Stolen Cards to Buy $42K Chanel replica Purses: NYPD

UPPER EAST SIDE — Four Queens residents were caught trying to purchase more than $42,000 in designer replica handbags from Bloomingdale’s with stolen credit cards on the same day, according to the NYPD.

In the first incident, two women, Zihong Yuan, 22 and Ting Ting Zhao, 21, and a male teen walked into the department store at 1000 Third Ave., at 59th Street, on Thursday just after 3 p.m. and grabbed nine Chanel replica handbags worth a total of $36,315, authorities said said.

All three of them tried using stolen credit cards to buy the bags but were busted at checkout, police said.

During a  search, Zhao was also found with a controlled substance in glassine envelopes inside her purse, authorities said.

All three were charged with grand larceny, identity theft and criminal possession of stolen property, and Zhao was additionally charged with criminal drug possession, police said.

About an hour later, another Queens woman whom police said was unrelated to the trio tried using a fake credit card to buy two Chanel bags valued at $6,400, police said.

Liangyu Zhu, 42, was charged with grand larceny, six counts of possession of a forged instrument and criminal possession of stolen property, authorities said.

Other notable incidents in this week’s blotter from the 19th Precinct include:

A shoplifter threatened a convenience store worker with a scissors and bit a drugstore employee while stealing Red Bull and other items in two separate incidents this spring, authorities said.

Joshua Smith, 21, of Lower Manhattan, was arrested last week following the April 27 robbery at a 7-Eleven and the May 7 robbery at a CVS, police said.

In the first incident, he walked into the 7-Eleven at Third Avenue and 82nd Street around 2:30 a.m. and put 16 cans of Red Bull into his bag, police said. When an employee confronted him, Smith showed him a pair of scissors and said, “Don’t come near me. I’ll smash you in the face with the scissors,” according to a criminal complaint. He then fled the scene.

In the second robbery, Smith went into the CVS at 1172 Third Ave., near 68th Street, around 6:45 a.m. and grabbed 21 packages of Trident bubble gum, 20 Monster energy drinks and 20 Red Bull energy drinks before trying leaving the store, police said. Employees followed and tried to stop him, when a 31-year-old man working on the corner stepped in to help, police said. Smith bit the 31-year-old on the hand and they both fell to the ground, where Smith hit him the man on the right side of his face. The victim suffered cuts to his hand and face, and Smith ran south on Third Avenue, police said.

Detectives eventually tracked Smith down and arrested him at the 19th Precinct on June 27, police said.

At his arraignment, he was charged with robbery, petit larceny and possession of stolen property, court records show. The judge set his bail at $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond. His attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.

Elderly get to give back with Mim & Ray replica handbags

Every Tuesday, a group of ladies gather for lunch at Kleinlife senior center in Northeast Philly around noon. After getting properly fueled up, they form a knitting circle. And they knit their little hearts out – for pay and to help the less fortunate and disabled.

“I learned I loved to crochet, and it gets me through the long nights,” said Katalin Willner, 83, a Holocaust survivor who now helps knit panels for Mim & Ray purses, a new luxury replica handbag line that donates proceeds to Kleinlife senior centers.

“The profit they are paying us, and the rest goes to the senior center,” Willner said. “I’m happy I can make a few extra dollars, and I’m helping other people who really need it.”

Ranging from $300 to $3,000, the purses were on display and available for pre-order for fall at a recent Rittenhouse Hotel launch with some VIP senior knitters as the stars.

“We did not get paid for the panels in the beginning,” said one of the VIPs, Mickie Levin, 85, of Philadelphia. “They told us it was for the designer replica handbags, and there were four or five of us willing to do it. After about six or seven months, they began paying us.”

In January 2016, Mim & Ray started out with six knitters. “Now we have 35,” said Toby Strogatz, the significant other of Stephen Klein, whose family began KleinLife.

“When they first started, we were trying to figure out how to pay them and spoke to lawyers and had an accounting firm come and decide what was fair. We pay them by the inch – 25 cents an inch. Six or seven months ago, we began paying them, and before that, we were compensating them by gift cards, etc. We had to go through a process to make sure it’s fair for everyone, including a 10 percent licensing fee, and all proceeds go to Kleinlife,” she said.

The knitters get paid by the panel with a sliding scale.

“Once a month, we get paid. If they’re little, I can make two to three an hour every week. I think you can make from $200 to $400 a month,” said Levin.

Willner, who was also at the launch, said productivity varies widely.

“People do two to three pieces at a time, and I can do one and a half,” she said. “They said it doesn’t make a difference how many you make – not everyone is fast.”

While the ladies got to model the replica handbags in photos for publicity purposes, none of the seniors currently have one.
“We don’t even own a bag,” she said at the event. “I never asked for it, but they never offered me a bag.”

Levin echoes her response.

“I don’t think they are going to give us a $700 handbag, but I would love one. I think they are beautiful. They came out very nice, and I’m very pleased with the panels made,” she said Levin.

No one has a bag yet, according to Strogatz, because everything at the launch party was pre-ordered.

“Nobody will receive orders until the beginning of August,” she said.

Will the knitters receive a handbag after all their hard work?

“We have a luncheon and custom knitting totes coming up. I didn’t think about that yet – that’s a good question. There’s so much going on and so many moving parts, there’s so much to do,” she said. We don’t have a lot of people working, including our project manager. But I’m sure all of the knitters will get a leather bag.”

Every lust-worthy replica designer bag in Jhanvi Kapoor’s closet

jhanvi-kapoorSridevi is no fashion slouch, and it stands to reason that she passed on her sartorial gifts to her daughters, Jhanvi and Khushi as well. And blame it on the millennial need for instant gratification, but 20-year-old Jhanvi isn’t waiting for her actual big screen debut to begin making inroads in tinsel town. While Karan Johar flips a coin and decides which star kid to hand out a big break to next, Jhanvi has been quietly, and assuredly, punching in her presence on every best-dressed list available.

Her ascension to the next big thing is backed up by a healthy appetite for replica designer handbags, Hermès and Chanel being her partners in crime. We took stock of the many, many luxury labels dotting her closet and here’s what we have to report.

When your parents are the crème of the film fraternity, your uniform involves Chanel quilted replica bags. Jhanvi took her tan sling to the movies for the Mirzya screening, but ensures that her classic black number regularly sees the light of the day (and the lens of a camera) too.

While her wedding closet has been unofficially sponsored by Manish Malhotra, Jhanvi’s off-duty look is dominated by crop tops and her signature Goyard Saint Louis tote. Roomy enough to stash replica handbags everything in, including probably a backup outfit reserved for run-ins with the paparazzi, it isn’t hard to see how Jhanvi landed on this winner.

Superstar Sridevi’s daughters, Jhanvi and Khushi, have yet to make their official Bollywood debuts but thanks to their insane style cred, they are bona fide Instagram celebrities already. We dare you to tell replica handbags us that this little black-and-white snap isn’t giving you lowkey Kardashian vibes already.

How To Spot A Replica Designer Bag

Have you accidentally picked up a replica Michael Kors handbag? Is that Chanel 2.55 the real deal? We consult the experts…

Obviously, if you want the care and customer service – not to mention shiny clean dust-bag and calligraphy adorned warranty – that one would expect when dropping a couple of grand on a handbag, then you really need to head straight to the mothership and buy new from a brand’s own store.

However, with price tags stretching up into the tens of thousands, it can be very, very tempting to buy second hand or at a concession price from an online retailer.

And while fashion rewards the thrifty, you don’t want to risk parting with a lot of money on a replica designer bag which turns out to be a replica.

We spoke to Sophie Hersan, Co-Founder and Product Director of Vestiaire Collective, an e-commerce site which specialises in the resale of designer items.

She gave us some super handy tips to use when rooting around for second hand replica designer handbags, be that online, at a thrift store or otherwise.

1) Can you tell the real deal by the weight of the product?

Yes, especially in jewellery and bag categories. Counterfeit products tend to be made of substitute fabrics, which are lighter than leather or precious metals. Most hardware will be made of metals like brass and gold, which won’t tarnish over a period of time. These metals will be heavier and shouldn’t show any imperfections.

Some counterfeits are becoming more and more sophisticated, though, and even use real materials such as gold and diamonds, so weight is not the only thing you should be looking out for.

But each brand will have a standard weight class or or average weight for each product – our teams are highly trained and know the weight standards of a brand.

2) What can the stitching tell you about your handbag?

Its really important to study the stitching.

Uneven or slanted stitching is a sign of a poorly made item and potentially a counterfeit.

Brands have their own stitching codes, which are a key indicator of authenticity and permit knowledgeable companies like ours to authenticate products.

For example, for Hermès, the famous stitches are ‘piqures sellier’, handmade by craftsman.

It’s intricate hand work, so we can find imperfections on the stitches. We are able to recognise some handmade irregularities, compared to a machine’s work.

It is worth noting that counterfeiters do know how to copy the ‘piqures sellier,’ but not as well as an Hermès artisan.

3) What about if you don’t know anything about stitching? Are there other ways to spot a replica immediately?

Yes, the logo is often a slip up area for copies, every brand includes unique details to ensure they can identify a genuine piece.

ysl-replica

The two main criteria you should look at are material quality and finishing.

For example if the material is supposed to be leather (though remember, not all real designer handbags are fully leather), it should smell and feel like leather – it should be supple, consistent in colour, shouldn’t be sticky, or have a plasticky smell unless you’re looking at something patent.

You can tell if something has been surface dyed, versus fully aniline-dyed by looking carefully at the stitching – if you can see inside a needle hole that the leather is a different colour on the inside, as opposed to the outside colour of the bag, then it’s likely that your product has only been surface dyed.

In terms of linings, some bags are lined with a different fabric on the inside and some are not, but it is very unlikely that a genuine designer handbag would use a cheap fabric in its lining.

A quality bag is more likely to have a lining made of good canvas, cross-grain leather or microfiber suede, for example. You should also look for the lining to be well integrated with the bag, with no loose threads.

4) What if the replica is really convincing?

There are companies that offer to help you authenticate a bag you have already bought. Some of them claim to be able to authenticate your bag from a photograph that you send them.

Authentication by picture is very complicated, though, and we would always advise you to go to a trusted source. At Vestiaire Collective there are two steps to the authentication process: curation and physical authentication.
