Strange the misadventure suffered by a client of US company Newegg. Vincent Waller’s smile on receiving his brand new Core i7 920 didn’t last long. On taking his processor out of the box, he realized that it contained a cardboard fan, a blank instruction sheet and a false processor. A rather disagreeable and costly joke, less uncommon that you might think.
It seems that this false box is part of a series of 300 that were introduced into a larger lot. Many clients are reported to have received them. Though we have no official confirmation, rumours have it that the fault lies with the wholesaler of the store concerned. If this is confirmed, it will still have to be determined how the processors found their way into the stocks and who it was who sold them.
All parties involved are based in the United States and it's very unlikely that we’ll be receiving any of this phantom produce in Europe.
