BIDI® Vapor warns the public against fake products for their safety and assures customers how to authenticate their BIDI® Stick.
Recently, a video surfaced showing a building or facility where operations of what seems to be a manufacturing and packaging plant of the BIDI® Stick. At first glance, the operation seems legitimate. But upon closer inspection, you will notice that these are counterfeit products. The illegal manufacturers have gotten frighteningly good that they have even copied the new packaging.
Here goes what is intensely feared to be a black market operation of the BIDI® Stick by unscrupulous traders.
Fearing people falling victim to the proliferation of fake goods, BIDI® Vapor has launched campaigns and advisories to inform consumers of the prevalence of these bootleg products. The company has also instilled technologies to combat counterfeit products in the BIDI® Stick itself. It has launched initiatives and drives to vigorously deliver the knowledge to its loyal customers and business partners.
Counterfeit products use substandard materials with low to zero quality control. Illegal manufacturers and counterfeiters produce fake products that are not up to standards and could cause physical harm to consumers. Using cheap raw materials will make their profit margins heftier. They couldn’t care less about rules, regulations, or customer safety because they are only after a quick buck.
This worries BIDI® Vapor. Thus, the company issued advisories to warn consumers and its partners of the potential hazards of purchasing fake products. Fortunately, BIDI® Vapor has employed anti-counterfeit technology on its products for easy authentication.
BIDI® Vapor believes that it is their responsibility to protect consumers by giving them the knowledge and tools to safeguard themselves from counterfeit products.
