Counterfeit Media Sales are on the rise!

Published by Insurgo on February 11th, 2021


At Insurgo we buy and sell many new tapes every day… Counterfeit tape media is a real problem now!

We are Tape Media Experts and very skilled in spotting fakes. Of late, the counterfeit packaging has improved very close to the new standards we have come to expect from our tape manufacturers. It is so good that today without our in-house technology, even us experts can be fooled! 

Over the past few years, we have seen a rapid increase in the number of incidents, and it’s likely to get worse. Some are mixed in with the new tapes, others are fake, but you wouldn’t know to the naked untrained eye!

We felt the need to adapt our in-house technology to deliver safety to the tape market, knowing you can trust your source, in the following video, we outline the risks, and show you how to spot and stop the fake in a split second.
