- These fake hair straighteners were used by 17-year-old Rebecca Day from Leicestershire. Her hair ended up melting and part of her scalp was singed.
- In the last three months, the UK Border Authority has seized 1,300 iPhones, some of which were smuggled into the country in boxes of AC adaptors.
- Consignments of well known branded boots - which have come from China - and 32,000 labels of the brand they are copying have come from India. Fakes are being made up illegally in the UK.
- This is an early copy of an iPad. Firms in the Far East reverse-engineered the device within three weeks of its launch to a realistic looking copy.
- The latest DVD compilation of Blackadder, made to a substandard quality, has also been copied.
- Well known branded razors and other household products are also being picked up.
- Listeners have been sending in their pictures of 'fake' products. This jewellery was passed off as a well-known brand and cost £85, but it's only worth about a fiver. The person who bought it says the website hasn't responded to her complaints.
- Louise, from Dunstable, says she is "furious" at the site that sent her this game for her Nintendo DS, which doesn't work.
- Ashton-Kate got also caught out. She says: "These were purchased as a gift... but once receiving them, I realised they were fake."
