German Authorities Seize Thousands of Counterfeit HP Supplies, Components

CRN reported on June 26th that German customs officials recently seized thousands of fake HP printer supplies and computer components.

Following the advice of HP’s Anti-Counterfeiting and Fraud Team (ACF), German Customs officials conducted a series of raids in Germany, including two at Frankfurt Airport. The officials secured large quantities of counterfeit computer components and toner cartridges illegally labeled with the HP logo. Further investigation led them to counterfeiters in Dresden, with authorities seizing about 4,000 counterfeit items.

Susanne Kummetz, channel director for HP Germany, commented: “HP is proud of our ongoing partnership with the local German authorities, which helps bring forgeries to justice in EMEA. Our continued success is due not least to the quick action of German officials. Our Anti-Counterfeiting and Fraud program in Germany and throughout Europe ensures that our customers and distribution partners do not fall victim to illegal activities in the region.«
