And this is the umpteenth crackdown.

That's the problem. Crackdowns instead of daily enforcement.

Some still don't know that only selling online is safe ?!

 

No they cannot build the website to sell on line so use facebook which is monitored 24/7 by all the inactives

 

Create a website its safer, until google picks it up. mind you this is not the UK

Oh everyone knows about the corruption in Thailand,  but counterfeit goods are okay for you. Right!

Nice attitudes,  I would rather buy the real thing, and not a pirated knock off, thank you very much.

  I always like to hear of these raids, and just wished that they happened more often.
