Amazon and Cartier are taking several alleged counterfeiters of luxury goods to court. According to IDEX Online, the two companies have filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington against “a Chinese social media influencer and eight businesses accused of counterfeiting.”


The defendants, among them Phmn9y3v, Vfdnytu, Amazing Jewelry You Want and Miao-He are sued for selling luxury goods through Instagram and other websites while “infringing on Cartier’s registered trademarks and violating Amazon’s policies.”


In a joint statement, Amazon and Cartier remarked: “The criminals openly posted photos of counterfeit Cartier jewelry, with a description of the infringing product on Instagram, but on Amazon and other websites, they created product detail pages for generic products with no indication of infringement.” 


According to the lawsuit, a Chinese social media influencer and other “bad actors” promoted counterfeit Cartier bracelets, necklaces, and rings on Instagram as well as their own websites.
