Always figured the CPU's would at least be tested along with GPU's that were open box, at least for a power on!
I wonder if they track the serial numbers and could just pursue action against the original customer who made the fake return?

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths those will go to in order to make a dishonest buck!

the real shame is allowing people to return something they bought for stupid reasons.

Amazon need to do something. Their returns are so easy. I know people who bought top end AMD PD chips, only to receive like a Celeron or something. They really need to crack down on that.

Semitope - I agree completely. I saw this guy on another forum buy about ten monitors and send them all back. He had no intention of buying any of them. People who abuse stuff like this wreck it for the rest of us, but hey I guess that's life right?
