A batch of fake Multimedia Cards (MMC) bearing the SimpleTech brand has been discovered in Kuwait. MMC cards are a small form of data storage commonly found in mobile phones and MP3 players and SimpleTech’s distributor in the Middle East, the Concentration Computer Company (CCC), picked up the imitation cards last week. “We identified one of these units in the Kuwait area and have sent it to the United States for testing by SimpleTech,” explained CCC general manager, Husam Alif. He added that the extent of the problem in the rest of the region is still to be clarified. The fake cards have a memory capacity of 256MB, a specification that is not included in the current SimpleTech portfolio. “We at SimpleTech consider these actions to be malicious and have instructed our legal department to pursue all actions necessary to protect the company’s legal and equitable rights,” said Mike Moshayedi, president of SimpleTech. CCC has sent a letter to all of the retail outlets that carry SimpleTech MMC cards, warning them of the fake MMC cards circulating.
