Wanna buy a Rolex for US$10?

Wanna buy a Rolex for RM40 (slightly more than US$10)?

Worry no more. There are now more than 20 people peddling branded watches at Jalan Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur. Rolex for US$10 is a bargain but whether it can last you more than a day is something worth pondering.

A survey by a local newspaper has found more than 20 fake watch peddlers targeting tourists around the Bukit Bintang area. Most of the peddlers are from Sabah and the Philippines.

According to some of them, the return is lucartive. They can net as much as RM20,000 a month by selling fake watches to tourists.
