How do we know you're not a Trading Standards sting

Dear ChaosTrulyReigns,

Even if I was a Trading Standards officer it would not matter. A private individual is not in breach of the law when they buy a counterfeit item. It is only if you are buying it in order to sell it on, in short to seek commercial profit from trading in counterfeit items that you are in breach of the law.
