Counterfeit Airbag Seller From Moxee Gets Jail Time

KNDO

A Moxee man will spend more than two and a half years in federal prison for selling counterfeit airbags on the Internet.

In June, 34-year-old Jason Jordan pleaded guilty to conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit airbags. He was sentenced Thursday to 31 months in federal prison. Once released from prison, he will serve a 36-month term of court supervision. The judge also sentenced Jordan to pay about $600,000 in restitution and forfeitures.

According to court documents, Jordan owned two businesses, Auto Pros and Sickspeed Inc., in Moxee. He sold retail automobile parts via the Internet from these businesses.

Jordan used these businesses to facilitate the importation of counterfeit airbags from China, which were falsely labeled as being manufactured by reputable automobile manufacturers. He advertised these counterfeit airbags as genuine products and sold them via e-Bay.

Jordan admitted that he actually sold about 1,980 counterfeit airbags from June 2011 to August 2012, and earned about $444,180 from the sales.
