A man who sold fake headphones on Amazon has been sentenced.
Anton Dyleuski, 31, operated a counterfeit goods business from his property in Brent, purchasing thousands of fake Sennheiser headphones from suppliers in China before selling them through the online retailer at £20 below the RRP.
Between 2011 and 2013, he is believed to have sold 7,312 headphones to the value of approximately £170,000.
His company, Shakespeare Travel Ltd, traded as Prime Electronics, and he operated from his home in Sidmouth Road, Cricklewood.
Dyleuski and Shakespeare Travel Ltd (trading as Prime Electronics) pleaded guilty to three trademark offences. He was sentenced to 44 weeks in prison, suspended for two years and was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service.
The company will be sentenced after the conclusion of a confiscation hearing, which will take place in July at Harrow Crown Court. The council has also seized all of the fake items.
Councillor George Crane, lead member for environment at Brent Council, said: “Anton Dyleuski operated illegally for two years, deceiving over 7,000 consumers and unfairly deprived legitimate businesses of this trade.”
Dyleuski was sentenced at Harrow Crown Court on February 27.
