A trader has been fined in court for selling fake designer headphones and dangerous electrical goods from his store in Harlesden.
Aminullah Hajilawan, 41, of Abbey Road, Kilburn, came to the attention of officers from Brent and Harrow Trading Standard Service after they bought counterfeit Beats by Dr Dre headphones in Harlesden Shopping Mall based in the High Street.
Hajilawan is the Director of Bilal Communications Ltd that owns the shop.
Willesden Magistrates’ Court when officers visited the store a second time they seized 174 counterfeit and unsafe goods, which if genuine, had an estimated retail value of £8,800.
This included more of the headphones, which cost from £100 when genuine but he sold for £20, fake mobile phone covers and laptop chargers which were later found to be electrically unsafe.
In addition Hajilawan was issuing customers with a receipt which stated ‘No Refunds’.
This is unlawful as it restricted a consumer’s statutory rights to redress in the event the goods were faulty, not as described or fit for their purpose.
