Syndicate of Fake Printer Cartridge Busted

SHAH ALAM, June 18 2013 : The Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry's Selangor branch has busted a syndicate that buys and re-sells fake printer cartridges.

Its enforcement chief Othman Nawang said an enforcement team raided three premises, a factory, a shop and a house in Section U5 here today.

He said 3,252 fake cartridges of various brands such as HP, Brother, Samsung, and Canon, as well as a compressor machine and cartridge machine cleaner worth a total of RM500,000 were seized during the raid based on a tip-off from a printer company.     

"Two local workers in their 20s were also detained at the factory," he told reporters here.

Othman said the suspects allegedly bought the cartridges for between RM5 and RM12 per unit and re-sold them for between RM50 and RM180 each.
