Why does Amazon, eBay, Instagram, and Twitter list Fake Yeezy Boost 350 v2’s for Sale?

It’s not rare for me to discover ads for fake Yeezys 350 for sale, particularly as I’m browsing Instagram or even Twitter. And although I don’t have a Facebook account, I live with somebody who does and understand that is an issue there too. Targeted ads, the type that knows just what kind of shoes and streetwear I am in, is the very least of my worries. My problem may be the fact Twitter and Facebook have been approving sponsored ads from retailers selling fake Yeezys. https://fakeyeezysforsale.wordpress.com/2017/09/14/adidas-originals-brand-have-not-unveiled-an-actual-photo-of-the-brand-new-shoes/

I understand, however, there are many people who may fall victim to these sorts of ads. Both Facebook and Twitter is a partner of the Ads Integrity Alliance and also have policies in place to keep out sketchy advertisers, but that’s clearly not keeping any from slipping through the cracks. Without much supervision from the social networks themselves, exercising common sense is vital if an ad sounds too good to be true, it really is.

In my situation, by way of example, I know I am seeing an ad for a couple of fake Yeezys that cost significantly less than their retail value, there’s no way those sneakers are the genuine deal. Not only that but the name of the account advertising them — something such as “Adidas Yeezy 350 $119” — is really a telltale sign that the products are unauthorized. As per a report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the international trade of counterfeit and pirated goods amounts to nearly half a trillion dollars each year, and a is currently trying to expand to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, which are home to a combined billions of users.

In 2015, the US Department of Justice said it could crack down on counterfeits sold on the web. The Pirate Black Fake Yeezys 350 for sale Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in the past that her plan was to utilize tech companies such as eBay by providing them with “the right analytical tools” to fight intellectual property violations on the internet sites.
