This was all over the radio today:

Federal authorities arrested more than 20 people on Tuesday in what they described as a massive scheme to smuggle Chinese-manufactured counterfeit clothes and electronics into the United States.

Among the accused were federally licensed brokers who were supposed to make sure freight containers held legitimate shipments. Authorities allege the brokers helped smugglers avoid inspections by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

That really does hurt, doesn’t it?
