Scottish counterfeit king faces jail after whipping Rolex and Louis Vuitton
Fake Rolex salesman faces jail.
Conroy Lindsay, 37, sold watches, wall clocks, aftershave, shoes, clothes and bags for almost two years from bases in Bonnybridge and Falkirk, both in Stirlingshire, with fake marks.
At Falkirk Sheriff Court, Lindsay, of Bonnybridge, pleaded guilty to breaching the Trade Marks Act 1994.
The court heard that the equipment he sold or offered for sale – between August 2017 and June 2019 – bore identifying marks that were identical to or could be confused with marks belonging to Rolex, Ray Ban, Creed, Christian Louboutin, Hublot, Omega, Givenchy, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Tag Heur and Daniel Wellington.

Defense attorney Stephen Biggam said Lindsay had already been convicted.
He said: “There is a context to the commission of the offences.
“He’s a local guy. He was involved in the whole process – he didn’t run away.
Sheriff Christopher Shead postponed his sentence until June 23 for reports.
The Crown will state all the facts of the case at that time.
Sheriff Shead warned Lindsay that custody was the “likeliest disposition.”
He said that “with some hesitation” he would continue his bail in the meantime “if it is only to allow him to put his house in order”.
The court was told that Lindsay was also being sued under the Proceeds of Crime Act to recover the financial gains he made from the fake property scheme.
