HP has stated that Ghanaian law enforcement officers seized a significant amount of counterfeit ink cartridges during raids in May this year.

Following the operations, the authorities confiscated a total of 125 fake inkjet and 970 ready-to-use-for-sale counterfeit HP laser print cartridges.

The company noted that it expects there will be anti-counterfeit actions taken against those responsible for the illegal activity, from intelligence gathered through the raids.

General manager in the imaging and printing group at HP Africa Amr Hassan said: "People who buy counterfeit print cartridges and other fake merchandise believe mistakenly that they're receiving original products, and they deserve the high quality and performance for which they're paying."

Recently, HP stated that in the last four years, it has assisted in the seizure of almost nine million pieces of fake printing supplies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The company added that it works closely with local and global law enforcement forces to detect and remove illegal counterfeiting operations.
