We have found out that there are counterfeit
Murata products circulating around the world especially in the East Asian
region. These counterfeit products are handled by electronic component
dealers or Internet Web sites, outside of our official distribution channels.
Not only do counterfeit products fall short
of our quality standards, possibly causing malfunction of equipment, but
the customers who use them may be penalized for unintentionally being involved
in an illegal activity.
Therefore, we request our customers to make
sure to purchase Murata products through Murata Manufacturing sales offices,
sales subsidiaries, official distributors or the electronic component sales
site "Ceramy Direct" on the Murata Web site to avoid accidentally
purchasing counterfeit products.
We cordially request customers' understanding
If you need help in your suspect items, try
our web counseling service.
