The Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Game is incredibly popular and duelists spend major cashola on it every year. So, a bunch of no-good jerks figured they'd cash in on the game by ripping off duelists with a bunch of fake cards. But, Upper Deck's investigators were on the job and uncovered a massive pile of fake Yu-Gi-Oh! cards! Here's the scoop on what went down.

Fake Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Cards

What happened to get this whole thing started is that a company, which authorities suspect is based in China, started making fake Yu-Gi-Oh! cards by the truckload. A bunch of 'em got shipped to a warehouse at 1566 Rio Vista Avenue in Vernon, LA. Then, the cards were sold to stores who would then sell 'em to Yu-Gi-Oh! duelists. Unfortunately, these cards were bogus so if a player got caught with one during a tournament, they would get booted out!

How the Police Found the Fake Cards

The way that these fake cards got found out was when someone tried to sell an undercover police officer 250 cases of fake Yu-Gi-Oh! cards for $36,000. The officer was told where to pick up the cards and immediately got a search warrant. Then peeps from the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) went in and found 350 cases of bogus cards worth nearly $3,000,000 US!

Fake Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards and Dueling

This is great news for you and the rest of the peeps you duel with cuz it means you won't get ripped off by buying fake cards by accident! These cards look like the real thing, but there are ways to tell that they're fake and if you get caught with phony cards in a duel, you lose!
