FAKE merchandise totalling £750,000 has been seized in West Yorkshire in the last month.
Trading standards officials and the police have seized the goods from car boot sales and market traders.
They include DVDs, CDs and PlayStation games.
Some will be either re-used, recycled or given to charities.
The rest will be burned.
Items worth £250,000 were seized last weekend at a car boot sale in Leeds.
People caught selling fake goods face big fines or jail.
Trading standards officials and the police seized clothing including branded names such as Von Dutch, Nike, Henry Lloyd, Dolce & Gabbana and Paul and Shark.
Branded perfumes such as Obsession and CK One were also found, along with other well- known names such as Dove soap, Gillette razors and Duracell batteries.
Five people were arrested and more fake merchandise was found in follow-up raids on suspects' homes.
Three boxes of fireworks were found illegally on sale at the car boot event.
A search of a house in Lancashire unearthed further illegally-stored fireworks.
West Yorkshire's Chief Trading Standards Officer, Martin Wood, said: "Counterfeit goods
can come at the expense of quality and safety. Consumers get a poorer-quality product and little scope for redress."
Trading Standards committee member Clr Tony Brice said: "What may look like a bargain will prove to be a waste of money, as it will be a badly made copy of the real thing.
"Counterfeit goods are part of a shadow economy. Money made by counterfeiters tends to be part of much larger criminal activity, including drug dealing and money laundering," he added.
