Study offers ideas to combat growth of trade fraud

Companies in New York that import fake merchandise or falsify records to avoid paying import duties generally have the upper hand with authorities. The sheer scale of imports entering the country makes comprehensive inspections nearly impossible, according to a recent study that examined trade fraud. Every year, $2.71 trillion worth of products enter the country.

Their study concluded that cooperation among federal agencies and increased prosecution under the False Claims Act might hold more importers accountable.
