Protecting Yourself from Counterfeit IT Products

A recently posted article from a UK newsletter warns of the potential dangers of counterfeit electronic parts in IT products.  You can read the article here.

This is a very good article in educating the buyer on what they have to do to protect themselves from purchasing counterfeit goods.

While Probrand has developed a good five point checklist for businesses to ensure they aren’t caught up buying counterfeit goods,  our company has been successful registering the warranty and checking the product’s designated serial number which can be used to track the authenticity with the manufacturer.

Registering the product and checking the serial number are great communication tools to alert the manufacturer whether there is a non-authentic product out on the market.
