Long Island family busted for $25M counterfeiting scheme, December 27, 2017

Mahmood, Ramish, And Rubail Nasir

It’s a counterfeiting family affair.

Nassau County cops arrested a father and his two sons Tuesday for importing $25 million of phony luxury bags, watches and other accessories, officials said.

Mahmood Nasir, 55, was charged with counterfeiting after an investigation by Nassau police and federal authorities found millions of fake goods in his home, at a storage facility and in another rental property.

The phony accessories were emblazoned with brand-name goods Rolex, Burberry, Hublot, Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton.

The conniving trio shipped the millions in faux luxe goods from China through JFK, and would then resell them to counterfeit merchants in the City, Nassau Police said Wednesday.

His sons, Ramish Nasir, 22, and Rubail Nasir, 18, were each charged with counterfeiting and conspiracy.

I didn't believe that these guys were originally a Long Island family, and found this story from ABC7 with an actually informative headline:
Immigrant, two sons charged with selling millions worth of knock-off merchandise, December 27, 2017
