WASHINGTON — Law enforcement agencies working together around the world reportedly seized 132 online domain names that were selling counterfeit goods to Cyber Monday and holiday shoppers, the U.S. Immigration and Custom's Enforcement says.

The websites were allegedly selling counterfeit goods to consumers who had no idea that the goods were in fact counterfeit.

The organizations, said to be from Belgium, Denmark, France, Romania and the United Kingdom, helped take down the sites as part of Project Cyber Monday 3 and Project Transatlantic, ICE says.
