In a blow to everyone who has expensive taste but low quality standards and lower bank accounts, Customs and Border Protections agents have snagged more than $86 million in fake luxury goods at Miami International Airport over the past six months. In fact, they've intercepted more than 505 shipments of ripoffs.
