POLICE in Bangor are warning Christmas shoppers not to buy fake goods as they could be funding drug dealers or terrorists.
A spokesman said: “Times are tough and some people might think it is OK to buy fake designer wear this Christmas.
“But ask yourself who is profiting from your desire to save a few pounds?
“Is it a terrorist group or drug dealers, what are they doing with the profit they make?
“When the sole falls off your son’s fake Nike trainers or the badge washes off his football top is there a returns policy?
“If these criminals were standing on the street asking for donations would you give them money?
“If the answer is no, then don’t buy fake goods.”
