OPPO Malaysia has just issued an official press statement on a recent claim that a dealer sold counterfeit products, which precipitated the attack on their outlet in Low Yat Plaza on Friday night.
Official Statement By OPPO Malaysia On Outlet Attack
12th July 2015, KUALA LUMPUR – OPPO Malaysia does not condone to counterfeit products and will continue to investigate and hunt down all fake products to ensure that only the approved quality products are sold to our customers. All OPPO Malaysia’s official outlets, dealers, distributers and partners were carefully selected to provide high quality service and genuine OPPO products.

It should be no surprise that OPPO Malaysia would never allow any of their dealers to sell counterfeit products. But their press statement now gives some credence to the original story that the attack happened because one of those “thugs” bought a counterfeit OPPO smartphone.
It would run contrary to the statement by the police that this was merely a case of property damage by the friends of a thief who was arrested earlier at that OPPO outlet, and thus had nothing to do with any counterfeit OPPO product.
The commotion began earlier in the day when the mall’s security guard caught one of the thugs shoplifting in the smartphone store and turned him over to the police.
“His friend was not happy and called other people to go to the shop to damage products,” he told reporters.
Well, one thing’s for sure – a crime was committed, and someone’s gotta pay for all this damage!
