The OEM has been talking about its successful raids and actions across Europe, Middle East and Africa in the last five years.
According to a report by Naja247News HP’s Global Anti-Counterfeit Programme Director, Glenn Jones spoke in Lagos about its recent successes in which HP’s ACF and Nigerian police managed to seize 54,000 counterfeit goods which included toner and inkjet cartridges.
According to the report, HP’s ACF and local authorities raided multiple locations in Enugu, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kogi, Lagos states, and the FCT.
Naja247News reported that Glenn Jones said in the statement: “We are very proud of our ongoing partnership with the Nigerian authorities to help safeguard our consumers and partners from illegal, fraudulent activity, as well as working together to bring counterfeiters to justice in Nigeria. The successful removal of counterfeit products from the Nigerian market is a testament to HP’s unwavering efforts and commitment to protecting our customers, and the continued success of our anti-counterfeiting and fraud programme.
She added: “Counterfeiting is a crime. For users, such illegal imitations can cause a multitude of problems that can lead to performance and reliability issues. In this kind of scenario, if our customers’ printer breakdown because of using counterfeit ink or toner, they may have difficulty with the manufacturer’s warranty becoming applicable.”
In the report, Naja247News also said that HP’s ACF in partnerships with local authorities has managed to seize 12 million counterfeit products across Europe, Middle East and Africa in the last five years.
