Counterfeit printer ink cartridges, potentially worth about RM1.5 million (US$365,000), have been seized in a raid on premises in Jalan Gurdwara, Malaysia.

Mohd Narwadi Saad, the Enforcement Director of Penang Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry, revealed: “In the seven-hour operation from 3pm, we seized about 2,000 units of empty cartridges and also 720 cartridges which were ready for sale.”

Various branded, empty cartridges, including Samsung, Brother, Canon, Xerox and HP had been refilled with low quality ink and sold at the price of original cartridges, namely RM300 (US$73) to RM500 (US$122) per unit in the market.

“The workers at the premises fled during the raid, but we are sure that we will be able to identify the parties involved soon,” Saad added.
