Dunstable businessman fined over £6,500 for selling phoney and dangerous goods

A man from Dunstable has been ordered to pay over £6,500 this month after selling unsafe and fake products to his customers.

Mr Dean Dovey aged 27 from Hadrian Avenue, Dunstable was caught after Luton Council got in touch with Central Bedfordshire Council’s Trading Standards Team to inform them about a tip off that they had received regarding products Mr Dovey was selling on an online auction site.

Central Bedfordshire Council investigated by reviewing the items for sale and undertaking test purchases on those that were suspected to be either unsafe or counterfeit. This resulted in a warrant being carried out where 3097 items were seized.

Mr Dovey appeared at Luton Crown Court on 12 March and entered a guilty plea to 13 offences. He was ordered to pay costs of £6851 and complete 80 hours of unpaid work within 12-months.

Susan Childerhouse, Assistant Director of Public Protection and Transport at Central Bedfordshire Council said: “The counterfeiting of goods is dishonest and puts our residents at risk of harm from potentially dangerous products. It also undermines the rights of legitimate businesses and impacts on the local economy.

“The safety of the residents of Central Bedfordshire is our priority and shutting down any business that sells fake or dangerous products ensures that unsuspecting shoppers are no longer at risk.

“We hope this conviction acts as a warning to others that the sale of illegal goods will not be tolerated.”

2,544 counterfeit items were seized and included fake branded items (Samsung, BMW,  Mercedes, Audi, VW, Jaguar, Harry Potter, DC, Marvel and Transformers) as well as fake  smart bracelets and phone cases.

A total of 553 items were deemed unsafe and included Hot body slimming gel and  Sex aids.

The judge ordered the forfeiture and destruction of all of the items except for a number of sex toys that will be returned, if Mr Dovey can produce appropriate certification.
