I was at the River Road street fair in Fair Lawn, NJ today. A vendor at the fair was selling cheap jewlery and had approximately a dozen "Rolex" watches.
As the fair was heavily patrolled by the Fair Lawn police, I walked up to a group of three officers who were standing around. I told the officers about the counterfeit watches. I was informed by one of the officers that if the vendor says they are fakes, it is not illegal to sell them.
I then tried to get the vendor's business card but she refused t give it to me. My intention was to notify Rolex in New York.
I then tracked down a Fair Lawn police sergeant/detecive. I explained the situation to him and he said he would look into it. I suspect he said that so I would go away.
I spent good, hard earned money on a quaility watch. I resent a street fair vendor selling crap off a folding table and passing it off as Rolex. I resent lazy, overpaid, indifferent, police officers who cannot be bothered to do anything.
