JOIN OUR FIGHT
Coast has a zero tolerance approach to counterfeiting. We always strive to protect our loyal customers against the influx of cheap imitations to the market.
To help you avoid counterfeit websites, we have listed our authorised sellers for you. Any websites selling Coast that are not on this list are not authorised sellers of the Coast brand or its products.
We invest heavily in brand protection strategies such as the shutdown of counterfeit selling sites and legal action against Ebay sellers, importers and counterfeit factories.
We have to date identified over 45 websites selling counterfeit goods and action is being taken against all of these sites. As soon as sites are closed down, they are redirected to our anti counterfeit page.
Since the programme's inception over half a million pounds worth of counterfeit products have been delisted from Ebay by our in-house security team. Any eBay users selling bulk Coast items are then pursued through the courts and numerous individuals have to pay compensation.
We have a comprehensive border control programme in place, aiming to seize goods as they leave their origin countries or enter their destination countries. Importers are then either pursued through the civil or criminal courts.
Targeting trade sellers on sites including Dhgate, Tradekey, Tradetang, EC21 and Alibaba is also central to our strategy. Counterfeit product is delisted and persistent offenders are pursued through either the criminal or civil courts.
We have a large number of legal actions ongoing across the globe against retail operations selling counterfeit product - the sale of counterfeit items is not tolerated. As soon as we are alerted to sales we take appropriate action.
We have global operations ongoing to combat the source of this criminal activity and close down rogue factories.
Should you encounter any suspicious activity in relation to our brand please contact us and we will take action immediately.
