SMH ... This disgusts me for 2 reasons. First of all he’s only getting 4 fucking months, that’s bullshit! Second cause a lot of motherfuckers are out here still paying reseller prices for #FakeKicks! 🤦🏽♂️ _
A Portland man will serve four months in prison after selling knockoff Nikes he imported from China to unsuspecting buyers online.
#JamesPepion imported more than $174,000 in #counterfeitshoes from Chinese manufacturers and sold them alongside legitimate #Nikes on several sites he ran, with names like #GetSupplied.com and #SwagSupply, Inc. He used #Instagram, #eBay and #Shopify to advertise the imitation shoes.
#Pepion was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in #Portland.
After his four month prison sentence is up, Pepion will be on three years of supervised release after pleading guilty to a count of trafficking in counterfeit goods and money laundering.
The court also ordered him to pay Nike more than $47,000 and give up about $105,000 in profits he made from selling the fake shoes.
