With the Super Bowl coming up, Homeland Security Investigation Agents are busting people who are selling fake NFL merchandise.
Thanks to national "Operation Red Zone", special agents seized 300 and 13 websites and arrested 23 people.
Some items apprehended were fake jerseys, caps, t-shirts, jackets and souvenirs.
This is in partnership with the NFL and other major sports leagues.
Special agents have already seized more than 160,000 items of phony Super Bowl-related memorabilia across the nation for a total of more than $13.6 million dollars.
