In Nigeria, HP’s Anti-Counterfeit and Fraud team in collaboration with local authorities stopped three major counterfeit operations.
The Guardian Nigeria reported that in collaboration with the Nigerian Police, HP’s Anti-Counterfeit and Fraud team conducted raids on numerous “large-scale counterfeiting premises” in Nasarawa State and the Federal Capital Territory. The raids secured over 5,000 counterfeit items.
There have been over 12 million counterfeits and components seized throughout the EMEA during the past years by local authorities backed by HP Inc and the OEM itself has conducted more than 4,500 “audits and inspections of partners stocks or suspicious deliveries”.
HP Inc’s ACF programme is responsible for educating its customers and partners on what to look out for in counterfeit products and works closely with local and worldwide law enforcements to find and destroy illegal operations that produce fake HP Inc printing consumables.
