When fake versions of your phones begin to flood the market, you can be said to have truly arrived. That is what it looks like for TECNO, as it seems that fake versions of its products have appeared in the market. As such, TECNO has begun taking a series of actions against fake phones. For example, it has an operation jointly with local distributors and polices to attack the counterfeit handsets dealers to restrict the trend.
In Ghana, TECNO says it has joined forces with its local agent last week to crack down on counterfeit products in two key target markets in Accra and Kumasi. In Accra, Ghanaian agency teamed up with local police in joint operation on April 1, with many technicians from Carlcare after-sale service centers, and inspected 9 shops. About 2,000 alleged counterfeit TECNO phones were seized. In Kumasi, the agency together with local police carried out this anti-fraud campaign on April 2, with the technicians from Carlcare after-sale service center, inspected 6 shops. About 1,550 alleged counterfeit TECNO phones were seized.
Similar operations are in the pipeline for Nigeria, Kenya, and Ethiopia as well. Before now, we used to hear of only fake Nokia and Samsung phones. If fake TECNO phones are indeed flooding the market, then perhaps TECNO has done very well for themselves.
