The topic of a recent writing assignment focused in counterfeit products, a problem in many countries.  Bo writes about her own experiences while shopping for genuine goods, not knock-offs:

 Counterfeit products are those that look like the real thing, but differ in price and quality.  I have seen many counterfeit items; for example, bags, shoes, clothes, even things you can eat.  It is difficult to distinguish them when I see them for just a short time.  They are made [to resemble] the original products, but there are little details like logos or names.

Everything [fake] is cheaper and of poorer quality than the originals.  One of my friends used to buy cosmetics of the Internet.  She didn’t know that the cosmetics were fake.  She saw that everything looked the same as the real cosmetics, but they were cheaper so she decided to buy [one of] them.  But after she used it just a few times, she knew that the product was fake because it changed color to something different from the real thing.
