Police Bust Counterfeit Changhua Buerfang Egg Yolk Crisps 稱代購名店蛋黃酥卻賣假貨 2年售上萬盒

Apart from mooncakes, the egg yolk crisp is also one of the most popular Mid-Autumn Festival treat. The police recently busted a scam group posed as buying agents. They've been selling conterfeit egg yolk crisps labelled under Changhua's famous bakery named Buerfang on Facebook. The amount of illegally obtained profit is nearly NT$6 million.


Police: “Where did you buy this?”

Mr. Yeh: “I bought it from a buying agent.”

The police inspected all the pastries and found some gift boxes as well as bags at the warehouse. The man in red is currently under investigation for selling counterfeit egg yolk crisps and labeling them under Changhua County's famous bakery shop Buerfang.

Chang Shih-chieh, Captain, First Corps, Second Special Police Crops: “There have been people with bad intentions selling large amounts of counterfeit food products through various channels to scam consumers. The sources and ingredients are unidentified. This is a case of fraud, forgery, and violation of trademark law. The Prosecutors Office is now leading the investigation.”

One man surnamed Yeh posts on Facebook frequently, acting as a retail agent and providing services to purchase products for others on the page. However, the police caught him selling pastries with unknown ingredients coming from unknown sources this time at a price much higher than the market price and mislabeling them as well-known brands. Tens of thousands of boxes of pastries have been sold by him for the past two years, creating a profit of nearly NT$6 million. 

A large police force was deployed to the warehouse, and suspects tried to hide in the restroom. Another scam ring was also recently busted in New Taipei City for scamming job searchers online by luring them with side job opportunities that come with good pay requiring little effort or opportunities to earn passive income. More than 40 victims fell for the scam and the ring gained a profit of over NT$20 million. Police found that the scam ring is headed by people with criminal gang backgrounds.

Chang Wei-lun, Captain, International Criminal Affairs Division, CIB: “We found that Bamboo Union gang members are behind the computer network set up for scams. We were able to trace and capture seven suspects that are in charge of directing the scam through evidence that we found from our first wave of investigation.”

The police again would like to remind the public to watch out for the multitudinous scams and trickery going on in our society today. 

 

 

警方問葉姓男子盒子從哪裡來,男子回答是跟代購買的。紅衣男子拿起蛋黃酥給警方查驗,櫃子裡一盒盒糕點通通被員警搜出,這倉庫還被找到放有禮盒和紙袋,原來他涉嫌仿冒知名品牌不二坊販售。

保二總隊刑大偵一隊隊長張世傑指出:「有心人士對外聲稱可以透過特殊管道大量訂購,提供消費者來代購,惟實際所提供的貨品來源及成分不明,全案依涉嫌違反刑法詐欺罪、偽造文書罪及《商標法》,移送地檢署偵辦。」

關鍵字打下去,出現不少臉書團購社團,葉姓男子過去多次發文提供代購服務,如今被抓包掛羊頭賣狗肉。警方發現他涉嫌仿冒商標,進口來源及成分不明的糕點,用市價翻倍金額兜售,近兩年上萬盒流入市面,不法獲利逼近600萬元。

大批警力魚貫湧入攻堅,有嫌犯躲廁所辯稱內急,不敢面對。新北也有詐騙集團網路散佈假訊息,誆騙「輕鬆兼差」、「增加被動收入」等話術,誘騙超過40名被害人,不法獲利高達2000萬元。警方清查發現,主嫌具幫派背景。

刑事局國際科隊長張瑋倫表示:「偵辦竹聯幫明仁會從事詐欺機房工作,我們就根據第1波行動掌握到的事證,去抓出這些集團上游的幹部,總共7名的犯嫌。」

詐騙花招千奇百怪,從求職、投資詐騙,到現在也有仿冒月餅詐騙,像是這類非法行為,除了民眾小心求證外,警方也必須持續打擊犯罪。
