COUNTERFEITER ALERT: Magnus would like to call out a known counterfeiter operating in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia who has been stealing intellectual property from known reputable manufacturers in our industry. It is important that this discussion is talked about openly as it affects all of us in the industry. Please share this in all of your car related groups and on your pages.
Alfateh is his name on facebook, also goes as MOHD HAZRUL or Just “Hazrul”: full name he uses is Mohd Hasrul Bin Jaafar the phone number +6017-3352645 uses whatsapp as a medium of communication, had contacted us through the email of devil2Jz@gmail.com
He is also known to be a Mickey Thompson dealer in Malaysia, operates the https://www.facebook.com/mickeythompsonmalaysia/ facebook page. He represents a page under the same phone number, he also represents Clutchmasters in Malaysia. This person is involved in a counterfeiting scheme, in which he imports original parts from small legitimate North American engineering and manufacturing firms, posing as a client or a distributor, then steals their intellectual property and duplicates it and sells it with their name on it as was done with Liberty Gears bellhousing. He then befriends all of the aforementioned firms “friends” on their facebook profiles and solicits them.
As you know people who counterfeit parts are effectively stealing intellectual property. People who unscrupulously copy parts and sell for less money are only in it for one thing and that is financial gain. This is bad for everyone including the end user. In this situation they are copying parts that legitimate firms have spent countless years developing and perfecting. If our parts are ever to go in your engine, we make sure they work, we have a reputation to uphold and we hold ourselves to a very high standard. They on the other hand do not. Do you think you will get the same level of quality and care from a counterfeiter? After they have your money, they close up shop and run, as has happened many times before. We need to stop people from give these counterfeiters money. We need to stop the counterfeiters.
Magnus Motorsports is leading a team of concerned companies and businesses and is offering a reward for information leading to his home and business address so we may have our lawyers in Malaysia who specialize in anti-counterfeiting laws in the region prosecute all persons involved. If you think the person in question has counterfeited your products, please contact us.
Known companies whom they have counterfeited parts from include

It is important that we stamp out these unsavory characters and publicly shame them and those who buy their parts. All the other company’s who say its not me! I’m not involved! I wont make any noise so they won’t target me! When you make something of value its worth protecting! Staying silent won’t solve a thing, opportunists like this are everywhere and they coming for you next! Don’t let them steal anymore of your hard earned money.
