Most expensive fake purse ever purchased by tourist
The province of Venice, Italy is trying to send a message to tourists: “don’t even think about buying knock-off products here.” Jursula Corel, a 65-year-old Austrian tourist found out the hard way when was fined $1,195 for buying a fake Louis Vuitton purse from a street seller.
“We have a duty to combat this phenomenon, which is becoming unmanageable,” said Francesca Calzavara, head of the province of Venice. That’s one way to crack down on the problem. No word on what happened to the person who was actually selling the fake purses.
