Buyer to blame for 50% of time

What I have closely observed is that buyer is to blame for 50% of time for this counterfeit part purchase. How do you prevent this when buyer himself is not committed?

Hm, there are different set of customers in market, for everybody affordability is the key factor. I know about certain customers, who are only looking for counterfeit components; the reason is they want to sell the product at dam cheap price and quality is not an issue.  Other set of customers are looking only original components where strictly following quality.
