COUNTERFEIT FACE MASKS

We get it. This is a crummy no-win situation, but we have no choice but to monitor and not allow these products.

  1. We wear face masks for safety

  2. People love variety and style when purchasing and wearing face masks.

  3. People can make money selling trendy brands.

  4. Popular trends always come along with their counterfeit versions.

  5. Designer and licensed masks are tempting but counterfeits are problematic and illegal. O'Hare Bust for Counterfeit Masks

  6. But - counterfeits are illegal and individual sellers and flea market operators can be held liable. READ MORE

  7. And - the Chicago area is home to many of these counterfeit masks. FAKE N95 MASKS SEIZED AT O'HARE

  8. But - sorry you cannot sell them (or N95s) at Wolff's Flea Market.

  9. We know they are fake by the quality, cheap price, lack of packaging.
