PHOENIX -- Authorities took three women into custody, raided three homes and seized valuable property on Tuesday as part of what police are calling a "first of its kind" case in the United States.

According to investigators, more than 40 of the Nation’s largest manufacturers have fallen victim to a new kind of coupon forgery and counterfeiting.

Approximately 4 years ago, extremely high quality copies of manufacturer’s coupons began to surface in the United States from an unknown source.

The companies that were targeted in this apparent scam, in conjunction with the Coupon Information Corporation (CIC) hired private investigators to find out where the coupons were being sold in the United States.

These investigators discovered most of the fake coupons were being used in Arizona. Investigators also found that the coupons were being sold through the website, Savvyshoppersite.com. The site was doing business as Savvy Shopper, but is in no way related to the local consumer magazine.
