Federal investigators shut down up to 70 websites across the United States that were selling fake NFL merchandise, including jerseys, reports the Deseret News. Some of the websites included the names nflshopjerseys.com, nflshopjerseys.net and nflshop18.com.

On Thursday, federal authorities said the Salt Lake investigation is part of Project Copycat, a national ICE-led crackdown targeting websites selling a wide array of counterfeit goods, such as baby carriers, language and fitness DVD sets, clothing and jewelry. The jerseys were being sold by so-called “copycat” websites, which mimic the look of legitimate retail websites, federal officials said
Federal authorities have posted notices on each website notifying people that the federal government has seized them.
