newegg tried to raise capital by going public last year. this is a bad sign for a company the size of newegg. if they were a start up and went public it would have been okay. it doesnt help that the real owners are from mainland china. newegg is the front for at least five layers of corporations. so this problem of selling fake products is not surprising given that the company is running short on cash and bleeding by way of huge operating cost.

That excuse doesn't sound right.
It's not right. It's typical CYA from a reseller, back when I was in the business we got the same run around from major suppliers. Ingram and Supercom. There's usually someone on the inside swapping or there's taint in the supply chain. Anyone who was in the business from the mid 90's to early 2000's will remember how bad it was with silk screened chips.

Not sure if you guys are aware of this, but Newegg is not the same company it was a year ago. New ownership I've heard.

If you guys read the thread, this happened to many people and Newegg is claiming to have accidentally sent out "demo boxes."

That excuse doesn't sound right. So, whether Newegg should be blamed for missing this or not, it certainly appears that they're not giving the honest truth to customers. Unless somehow demo boxes are made this exact yet full of typos...

In the past seven or so years, I've ordered dozens of shipments of PC parts and accessories. Every single one of them was from Newegg. I've had a couple of DOAs (manufacturer's fault), and every one of them was replaced in a heartbeat by Newegg. I've never had a single issue that Newegg was responsible for.

There is no question that someone scammed Newegg, and the consumers got the results. There is no way Newegg was involved in some sort of 'conspiracy.' You don't toss out a stellar reputation for a scam involving a 100% chance of being found out by every single victim.

More likely a supplier added counterfeit units in a very large shipment. The CPUs were non-functional, so I doubt anyone at newegg would be stupid enough to expose themselves to that kind of bad PR.

I would be very surprised if NewEgg is even aware of having "fake' stock. Their reputation is the #1 reason why people are so loyal (including myself).

Maybe it's just an employee stealing the real one and replacing it with the fake.

Wow, some serious lawsuit if he is lying or if it's true.
