HP’s Famous “Wolf Dynamic Security” That Protect Against Counterfeit Toner Product Doesn’t Work!
Counterfeit HP toners in circulation.
It recently came to light (see tonernews.com) that counterfeit HP toners are in circulation. These imitations are so good that even official suppliers cannot distinguish them from the real thing. As a result, at least seven different European suppliers unknowingly shipped counterfeit HP toners to us recently.
Research by 123inkt shows that this problem is also ongoing outside the Netherlands. Sister companies in Ireland, Poland, Spain and Sweden also found counterfeit HP toners in their stock, while they also source locally. Counterfeit HP toners were also found in test orders from different suppliers in several European countries. So it is not only a problem in the Netherlands, news sources from the market indicate that this is a major European problem. 123inkt has now checked all HP toners in stock and removed any counterfeits found. In addition, 123inkt has formed a special customer service team and informed customers who may have unintentionally received a counterfeit HP toner via email (click here to go live to our website)
As far as currently known in Europe, this concerns 9 black toners for mono printers (black and white) and 13 different color series. 123inkt has also found counterfeit toners of various models among the genuine HP toners in its Dutch stock.

Recognize counterfeit HP-toners.
These counterfeit HP toners are almost indistinguishable from the original. The packaging is almost identical, according to the QR code it is an official HP product and even after installation the printer does not give an error message. However, once the packaging is removed, the counterfeit HP toners are easily identified by a filling hole sealed with a plastic cap.
Original from HP.
