It's a $130 processor being sold for $58 by users without any seller history, what do you think? More than likely these are used chips being put into retail boxes rather than full fakes, and shouldn't be bought.
Yeah report this person who sold you it.There is an option in there that could allow you to get your money back.Mind you you may have to send the product back.
Amazon already begin the process of refund my money
and Amazon also told me that seller left Amazon account
I never have this kind of problem before
but I did learn my lesson
so I hope AMD company will do something to at least warn
their own costumers of that kind of illegal activities going on
in any online stores
AMD can't do anything for a third party seller, you just have to beware of deals which sound too good to be true. Buyer beware.
I've been a prime member for 5 years and I ordered a Ryzen 1700 for $315 showed shipped and was sent to a different state and never got the item from the seller with no feedback. I used Amazon A-Z claim to get my money back. There is an influx of new scammers on Amazon and it's starting to be just like Ebay. If it looks to good to be true more than likely it is and steer clear. First time ever been scammed on Amazon.
Agree with BZ they're probably used. It's pretty hard to wreck a cpu so you might get lucky.
In this day when the IHS is soldered to the chip it is. Back in the Athlon XP days when the chips were still bare there were ways to really monkey with chips, such as drawing lines with a pencil between certain components and cutting other things...
I think its only fair to mention i have had this problem on both Newegg and Amazon when ordering anything below 5 dollars.Scammers are more often found there.This however is no excuse.Report them.Amazon has strict policies on actions like this.
well thanks guys for your feedback
I'm going back to my local electronic stores :-)
no more online stores for me
at the time I write this down I already requested to amazon to close my account
I just can't trust them anymore
because my last computer build was a true nightmare with amazon
basically 85% of the computer parts I order from them
I had send those parts back and ask for a replacement or a refund
it's not fun when you buy new computer parts and instead you get a defective one or a used one
I can understand some time can happen but it happen 6 times with 6 different orders for my new computer build
I was even consider the water cooling solution for my new build but I'm terrified to even consider to buy that from Amazon
because I'm 99% sure that I will get a defective or used CPU water cooler that will probably screw everything up..!!
in the end I don't think Amazon really care about the quality and real condition of what they sell
and my latest discovery about Amazon that basically allow third party sellers to scam amazon customers it was the so called breaking point for me
I still need to buy a video card to finish my build
and I'm going to finish this new computer build "nightmare" thanks to Amazon
just by walking into a real store at least I can see what I buy
stay away from online stores unless you're ready to deal with a lot frustrations
Looking at their feedback, no they're not.
