Canada’s anti-counterfeiting chargeback project: paying back deceived consumers

In 2012, Project Chargeback was created as an anti-counterfeiting, anti-piracy initiative. It is having significant success in disrupting the sale of counterfeit and pirated goods over the internet and preventing their entry into the channels of commerce in Canada.

The project, which is administered by the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center (CAFC), was launched in response to complaints from Canadians receiving counterfeit or questionable goods from e-commerce websites.
