The information in the table below represents an industry comparison of businesses which are of the same relative size. This is based on BBB's database of businesses located in Dallas and Northeast Texas. Businesses may engage in more than one type of business. The percent of time the business engages in a type of business is not accounted for. There is no known industry standard for the number of complaints a business can expect. The volume of business and number of transactions may have a bearing on the number of complaints received by BBB.

On January 29, 2013 in the Eastern District Court of Texas, U.S. Attorney John M. Bales announced that Shiraz Sherali Odhwani was sentenced to 3 years in Federal Prison for conspiracy to traffic counterfeit goods and ordered to pay $950,000 in restitution.
Mr. Odhwani owned and operated a company known as Turtle Wireless, a wholesale outlet and retail point of sale for cellular telephones and wireless device accessories located in Dallas, Texas.
According to court information, around 2008 Turtle Wireless began selling counterfeit cellular telephone accessories purchased from suppliers in China. Through Turtle Wireless, Odhwani then sold the counterfeit products to retailers within the Eastern District of Texas and elsewhere. In connection with this case, law enforcement officials seized more than 130,000 counterfeit items from Odhwani's store and leased storage space.
The infringement amount of that counterfeit merchandise was estimated at between $2.5 million and $7 million.
Odhwani was indicted by a federal grand jury in May 2011. The sentencing was finalized on January 29, 2013.
