Cosmetics group L'Oréal reports eBay to the police

The cosmetics group L'Oréal is no longer prepared to stand idly by and watch counterfeit perfume by brands such as Giorgio Armani and Lancôme being sold on the Internet auction platform eBay. According to media reports the company has reported the online auction house eBay to the police in France, Belgium, Germany, the UK and Spain. "We have noticed that the sale of counterfeit perfumes has increased dramatically; this not only constitutes a trade problem but also creates a problem of trust for our customers," the French media report a spokesman of the company as saying. According to L'Oréal the company had engaged in talks with eBay with the intention of coming to an amicable solution to the problem. The talks had, however, failed to yield any concrete results, the company observed.
