9. Fake Apple Stores
Imitation of branded products is quite commonplace, but ever heard about setting up a whole fake brand store?
A phenomenon was observed in Kunming China. Many branded stores such as Apple, Starbucks and H&M had opened up but there was no official listing on their website for the same. In fact, the stores were exact replicas of the real deal. The few things that gave them away were the skewed details on the products.
This extreme case of bootlegging was so bizarre that even the employees working in the store were convinced they working for the real company.
