UPRtek has made an announcement regarding fraud companies claiming to represent their products:
The following concerns a online sales representative, HONGFANG, who has no legal authorization granted them to market or represent in any manner the product "MK 350" from the company UPRtek, who holds all rights to this product.
It has come to our attention that HONGFANG operates a web site of www.light-test.net, where the product MK350 is being displayed and marketed. No permission, or license to conduct such business has been issued to HONGFANG from UPRtek. Furthermore, we believe HONGFANG maybe committing an act of fraud in that they are providing instructions to potential customers for processing payments without actually providing the product.
We would like to state in this letter that we are not responsible in any way for the actions being conducted by HONGFANG and their actions have violated the rights and brand name reputation of UPRtek. In order to protect the rights of any customers misled by HONGFANG into believing them to be the original manufacturer, or an authorized representative of the products of UPRtek; and, to prevent any further damage to our company's reputation, we have advised our legal department to initiate an investigation into this matter and to take whatever legal steps are necessary against HONGFANG. Also, we are asking all of our authorized and legal representatives to closely monitor the operations of this company and to constantly remind customers to check and recheck the marketing terms, including the price of any product they are considering and to inquire of their supplier's background.
Should any customer have a question, we encourage them to contact the consumer's hotline provided by UPRtek or listed on our web site. For more information concerning the legal representatives of our products and how to protect themselves against such business practices as mentioned here that might infringe upon their rights.
Please proceed with caution when encountering such companies and only trust official distributors for MK350 Led meters. Arrant-Light is the official distributor in Scandinavia, Baltic countries and Russia.
Please contact us for any questions.
