Luxury bags, haute couture clothing, jewellery, watches… 43% of Belgians say they have intentionally bought counterfeits (figures from a 2021 study).

A team from RTL has infiltrated the dark world of luxury counterfeiting in Turkey. In the footage above, shot with a hidden camera, Michael Miraglia is in a backroom of counterfeit goods, talking with the owners. The bags are of very good quality, with an identification number and even a fake certificate of authenticity, plus the little official padlock. The starting price is 250€, we will finally buy it 200€ (the value of this Louis Vuitton bag is around 1,200€).

“I have less good quality, at 100€”, explains the seller. “The color is a little different, and the tailoring too”.

The most surprising thing is without doubt that, back in Belgium, our journalists had no trouble going through customs checks with these prohibited products. And when they visited an official Louis Vuitton boutique in Brussels, the staff noticed nothing out of the ordinary as our team discussed the length of a chain on the bag.


The full report is to be discovered this Tuesday evening on RTL-TVI at 8:30 p.m., and then on the Exclusive page of RTL Play.
