Anyone who got a really good deal on a box of nails ought to check with judicial investigators.
Agents reported Friday that they had confiscated 7 million nails, some 250 boxes, because the nails are suspected to be counterfeit.
The agency said that using counterfeit nails can jeopardize the integrity of constructions.
The Judicial Investigating Organization said that agents made two raids to confiscate the nails at two firms in Goicoechea. Agents said that the nails had been imported from Asia. They were being marketed as if they were a recognized brand of nails, agents said.
