Tommy Boy Records have discovered that Amazon is selling counterfeit vinyl of titles they don't even press.
Following a recent study that found that 25% of CDs 'fulfilled by Amazon' are counterfeit, the revelation came during last week's Making Vinyl Conference in Los Angeles.
The president of Tommy Boy Records - who are best known from launching the careers of De La Soul, Queen Latifah, Afrika Bambaataa and more - Rosie Lopez said, "Counterfeit is another issue altogether. Somehow records that Tommy Boy hasn’t pressed in — ever — are on sale on Amazon, that’s a little concerning.”
Cypress Hill's DJ Mugg's personal record collection is up for sale.
Last December, a counterfeit vinyl pressing plant was busted by authorities in Wales.
