Malaysian stores caught selling counterfeits

October 11, 2018

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry has raided four George Town stores and seized an array of counterfeit print cartridges and toners.

As the New Straits Times reports, RM245,000 ($58,909/€50,920) worth of goods were seized from the four stores during the raids, which “lasted four hours from 9pm to 1am.”

Two people – a 50-year-old woman and her 20-year-old son – were arrested during the course of the proceedings.

A state enforcement officer revealed that “they also found several boxes containing original printer cartridges during the raids.”

“They refill the empty cartridges with fake ink and sell them together with the original ones. They do this when customers pre-order from them.

“They have been operating for five months and their items are catered to the Penang market,” he said in a statement.
