On August 6, 2012 FHI Heat received a call from Customs in Humble, TX to notify the company that over 21,000 FHI Heat Counterfeit Flat Irons were confiscated by the Port of Houston authorities – Houston Seaport Trade Team. The Port of Houston alerted Homeland Security as well as the US Customs and Border Protection Office of International Trade. FHI Heat is working diligently with Houston and Washington D.C. to shut down counterfeiting. At this time no arrests have been made but the investigation continues.
The counterfeit market is soaring and FHI Heat's legal team recently discovered different hair care brands usurping the FHI Heat name on the Internet to mislead consumers into believing they are buying the FHI Heat brand. The award winning hairstyling iron is in high demand!
“FHI Heat is initiating a campaign to fight strongly against this shameful and detestable act. As the President of FHI Heat, I want to assure our customers that we will not tolerate counterfeiting or diversion. We are currently working with our legal team and officials to do everything in our power to prevent this from happening in the future, ” says FHI Heat President Shauky Gulamani.
