HP and Saudi Authorities Disrupt Two Local Criminal Operations

Criminals had manufactured and traded large volumes of counterfeit print cartridges

 

SAUDIA ARABIA, November 28, 2019 – HP and Saudi Arabian authorities conducted a number of highly successful operations in the summer of 2019, to disrupt the trade of counterfeit HP branded cartridges across Saudi Arabia.
 
In July 2019, Saudi officials, supported by HP, raided several storage facilities located in the Riyadh and Jeddah areas, As a result, these anti-counterfeiting measures have resulted in over 65,000 illicit items seized, and the criminal operations have been disrupted.

Counterfeiting is a crime. For users, such illegal imitations can cause a multitude of problems that can cause performance and reliability issues. Should your printer break because of using counterfeit printer ink or toner, you could also have issues with your manufacturer’s warranty becoming not applicable. 

In contrast, original HP products are designed to meet HP’s strict quality and reliability standards, based on a long history of inventing and testing. Original HP LaserJet and HP inkjet cartridges, unlike counterfeits, benefit from superior performance and consistent results.

“HP is proud of our continued partnership with Saudi authorities, and have delivered one of our most successful years to date in apprehending and prosecuting counterfeiters who break the law,” said Venkataraman Narayanan, Managing Director, Saudi Arabia, HP. “Our unwavering efforts and commitment to removing counterfeit products from the market has delivered this outstanding result and is a true testament to the success of our Anti-Counterfeiting and Fraud Programme.”

Across EMEA over the last five years, approximately 12 million counterfeits and components have been seized by local authorities, supported by HP. HP has conducted over 4,500 audits and inspections (CPPAs and CDIs) of partners’ stocks or suspicious deliveries for customers. 

Through HP’s Anti Counterfeiting and Fraud (ACF) Programme, the company actively educates its customers and partners to be vigilant against fake printing supplies. It also cooperates closely with local and global law enforcement authorities to detect and dismantle illegal operations that produce counterfeit HP printing components.
