The UK National Trading Standards (NTS) eCrime team has swooped on 12 addresses across the UK as part of a clampdown on piracy on the Facebook social networking site.
Described as "one of the biggest enforcement operations of its kind", Operation Jasper aims to bring down criminals who exploit social media networks such as Facebook to flog their dodgy wares.
Items bagged during Operation Jasper included copyright theft enabled Android-based TV boxes with dangerous charging cables, poisonous dolls, and a range of counterfeit packaged computers, tablets and mobile phones.
"Counterfeiting and piracy of trademarked and copyrighted materials harms legitimate businesses, threatens jobs and pose a real danger to consumers. That's why we are taking strong action to stop these criminals through [government funding]," said Nick Boles, minister at the Department for business, innovation and skills.
"These criminals rarely act alone and are often linked to serious organised crime groups. We want consumers to be aware of the wider consequences of buying fake products online as well as the risks they pose to their safety."
With the help of the police and copyright group The National Market, both physical and virtual locations were hit during the operation, and the NTS said that enforcement officers have shut down 4,300 Facebook listings and 20 Facebook profiles in just a few weeks.
"Operation Jasper has struck an important psychological blow against criminals who believe they can operate with impunity on social media platforms without getting caught. It shows we can track them down, enter their homes, seize their goods and computers and arrest and prosecute them, even if they are operating anonymously online," said Lord Toby Harris, chair of the NTS.
"Criminals who operate on social media have become brazen because they think operating from their living rooms using laptops - without having to be physically present on market stalls - means they are less likely to get caught. I am extremely pleased that this operation has been able to prove that misconception wrong."
We have seen efforts against piracy sites before, and in 2014 Europol announced the results of a coordinated action called "In our sites" that took down 392 controversial domains.
