Parents are being warned not to buy deadly car seats that can kill a child at even low speeds of 30mph. Surrey County Council’s trading standards team issued the warning after it uncovered a global online market in the illegal seats.
Really excellent result by the SURELOCK team working with West Sussex Trading Standards, raiding the home address of a prolific eBay seller and seizing thousands of music artists counterfeits, well done to all involved.

This has not been a problem for our clients in the past and we certainly hope it will not be in the future. A few or many hours of work, depending on the scenario and the outcome we expect to achieve, can make a huge difference to your company. There is absolutely no need to justify using a private investigator.
Quoting a recent case
A product sold in a counterfeit form suggesting danger. The company contacted Surelock and hired our services.
We gained the necessary evidence to place into the hands of their intellectual property lawyers.
One up against the counterfeiters; and saving a company from being another statistic.
Companies and household names use our services. A private investigation company has much talent. Sometimes just being able to prove that a company is doing something right can make a difference one day when that wheel comes off. If we get asked to achieve the impossible we are honest, if something can’t be done, it can’t be done. We won’t take your money and then tell you!
Invoices can be as detailed as you like, clients already know our value.

West Yorkshire Trading Standards (WYTS) seized, during an inspection in January 2017 of the registered office of Custom Design UK Ltd, items of clothing & heat transfers bearing music and sporting trademarks including US football teams, such as the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.

David Lodge, Head of WYTS said: “We welcome the punishment given to Mr Clarkson as it sends a warning to others that counterfeiting is a serious crime and will not be tolerated.”
