Québec City, January 29, 2008 – Farouk Systems gained a victory in Canada when officers of the RCMP in Québec City Detachment seized over 4,500 counterfeit hairstyling irons.  Last year, the RCMP received a complaint from Farouk Systems regarding counterfeit CHI hairstyling irons, and therefore an investigation was launched in March 2007.  Farouk Systems uncovered that there were counterfeit irons being sold under their  renowned CHI® brand, after one was returned by an unsatisfied user.  The consumer bought the hairstyling iron on the Internet and was led to believe that the product was authentic from Farouk Systems.  Afterward, it was not long before the prestigious company began receiving complaints from other buyers who indicated their hairstyling irons failed shortly after delivery.  At this time no arrests have been made, but the investigation continues.
