When it comes to the automotive industry, we have a real passion being from Detroit, Michigan. All original parts (OEMs) should be respected worldwide, due to patents, trademarks, and proper ownership.
Counterfeit auto parts are constantly being sold liberally throughout online marketplaces. The quality and craftsmanship of each fake product isn’t there. These are literally made with minimal safety testing and at zero regulation even though many claim to meet DOT and SAE standards. This is how fraudulent companies are able to sell for so much less than an original part. It’s even well known that counterfeit products can even be known to fund terrorist organizations, explained in the book Illicit by Dr. Moises Naim.
We understand that when the public obtains any of these unauthorized products, it can place their safety in danger as well. Imagine a family member using a vehicle that at anytime could fault due to counterfeit (non-oem) parts and literally place their life in immediate danger.
How do we stop these products from being sold? We have a wide array of brand protection strategies specifically tailored for the automotive industry that we perform, in order to remove each and every single counterfeit product. To see those strategies click here.
