Australia Post in hot water over counterfeit jewellery allegations

Australia Post has launched an investigation after one of its stores allegedly sold counterfeit designer jewellery.

A visitor to the Australia Post location in Wentworthville in New South Wales, took to social media in early January to express confusion about a range of jewellery stocked on shelves.

The jewellery included earrings, necklaces and rings that appeared to be from luxury brands such as Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel; however, each item was offered at just $39.99.

More than 60 per cent of the national postal outlet network consists of Licensed Post Offices, independent businesses with a licence to provide Australia Post products and services. Trading in counterfeit goods is prohibited under Australian law.

People and businesses found to have purchased or sold counterfeit goods are subject to legal consequences, including copyright and trademark infringement penalties.

“Australia Post outlets are required to comply with all federal, state and local laws. We treat any breaches of this requirement seriously and are investigating this matter,” a spokesperson for Australia Post said.

The Wentworthville store manager was interviewed by A Current Affair and confirmed that the jewellery was purchased in Vietnam.
