A car mechanic has pleaded guilty to trafficking thousands of counterfeit airbags in deals that made him more than $1.4 million dollars in a year.
Igor Borodin, who co-owns an auto shop in Charlotte, North Carolina, allegedly bought an estimated 7,000 fake airbags from China and sold them on eBay between February 2011 and May 2012.
One of the airbags sold by Borodin through eBay was independently tested and failed to inflate properly, court records showed, the Charlotte Observer reported.
The plea comes just two weeks after the U.S. government warned that 'tens of thousands' of drivers who have had airbags replaced in the last three years could be affected by this sort of scheme.
