BREAKING: Fake Mooncakes Lead to Arrest

shockface Customs net 135 boxes of fake mooncakes

A 50-year-old beautician was arrested for selling fake mooncakes at the parlor where she works.

A total of 135 boxes of the Mid-Autumn Festival delicacy – carrying forged trademarks and valued at HK$20,000 – were seized in Yuen Long.

Police acted after a customer complained to the Hang Heung Cake Shop about the substandard mooncakes.

The woman, who was released on bail, is believed to have sold each box for HK$120, about 60percent of the original price.

Government Laboratory tests showed the cakes not to be harmful.

Michael Kwan Yuk-kwan, group head of the intellectual property investigation bureau, said it was the first time for so many fake cakes to be seized.

Hang Heung sells its mooncakes at designated shops and mall counters.
