Cyber Monday Sting Operation: International Strikeforce Seizes 706 Counterfeit Websites In Undercover Crackdown
” An international strike force formed by 11 law enforcement agencies seized and shut down 706 websites on Cyber Monday that were accused of selling counterfeit merchandise. It’s the sting operation’s fourth year, showing that governments have made “Project Cyber Monday” as much of an annual tradition as retailers have Cyber Monday itself.”
Now this is a government action that fits with their job description , protecting the public from force or fraud . This is where tax dollars are supposed to go , not to Obamaphones , contraceptives and electric cars . We do have one caveat though , as much as we want the protection against fraud we are leery of the State’s right to SEIZE private property … shutting down criminal enterprises yes please , seizing properties , not so much . It’s a fine line to tread and the government boot is seldom subtle enough for the high wire .
