Police arrest group with fake money Consumers urged to protect themselves
The ‘Buom Buom’ (Butterfly) shop located on District 6’s Ba Hom Street has been caught offering more than 1,400 packets of fake Durex condoms for sale.
The condoms are of inferior quality than those manufactured by Durex, according to the city’s Market Control Bureau, which imposed the administrative penalty.
Each packet was offered for sale at VND12,000 ($0.57), half the price of a ‘real’ one, they said.
Further investigations into the origin of the condoms are underway.
