Feds Bring Down Golf Counterfeit Sites!
By Kickntrue on 12/8/10
Holiday shopping will be a little safer this Christmas. Homeland Security has shut down multiple golf sites selling counterfeit goods.
As part of a far-reaching crackdown by federal agencies against websites trafficking counterfeit goods, five golf retail sites have been shuttered: sunogolf.com, skyergolf.com, golfstaring.com, golfwholesale18.com and mygolfwholesale.com.

Golf Magazine recently reported on the fight to thwart the sprawling equipment counterfeiting industry, which robs U.S. manufacturers of an estimated $6.5 billion per year. Much of the counterfeiting emanates from China, then makes its way overseas by way of e-retail.
Other sits exist of course and you always need to be careful online but it's cool to see parts of an actual crackdown to these bastards. It's not so much me and you getting fooled- but our sweet-meaning loved ones trying to shop for us. Any help is good help. I won't link the sites but feel free to drop one into your browser to get this SWEET image!

@Zepo1a- I was thinking the same thing! At least one of two of these sites were getting linked as SPAM in our forums daily.
