Chinese handset maker Realme on Thursday issued a warning to users against a fake company website asking for franchisee partnerships.

The smartphone player said it came to its notice that someone has created a website -- www.realmepartner.in -- asking for franchisee partnerships which was not owned and operated by Realme and the company does not take any responsibility of the people doing business through this website.

"We are surprised to hear about it and it is unfortunate that people are creating fake websites in our name. We would like to state that we only have one official website www.realme.com and will urge our users and business partners to be wary of other fake websites being created in our name," Madhav Sheth, Vice President, Realme and CEO, Realme India, told IANS.

According to the firm, few people have been selling counterfeit of Realme products such as Realme Buds Air, connectors, wires and so forth.

"We are taking serious legal action against them. All our product portfolio is listed on our official website," Sheth noted.

The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) currently sells its products online via its official website www.realme.com and its other online partners.
