    Received this from XFX today jus wondering if anyone else have?



    INSIDE THIS ISSUE |


    XFX APPEAL FOR HELP LOCATING CONFIDENTIAL

    MATERIALS


    Dear XFX Customers,

    In light of recent events, we suspect that one of our HD 5970 Black Edition Limited graphics cards may have been compromised. In our current inventory check of this limited run of 1,000 individually serialised pieces, #68 is unaccounted for. We have evidence of a security breach in our facility, thus we believe #68 has been illegally obtained as the product has yet to be released. Please be aware that the person responsible will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If any news can be provided to lead us to the apprehension of a suspect, or if you can provide us with any information, please report it to security@xfxforce.com. XFX will reward any information leading to the return of #68. Please do not attempt to buy, trade, or barter for this unit. We thank you for your cooperation and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Sincerely,
    XFX

    Yep I got that e-mail too. Seems odd to go so public about it.

    Sounds like there's a very angry man (or woman) somewhere...

    Actually, Theo Valich from BrightSideofNews is legitimately claiming that this a Grand Theft and not a PR stunt. Long Beach, California law enforcement is going to be receiving a phone call for further investigation purposes.



    Terry Makedon (Twitter - April 23, 2010, 7:35am): "Stolen XFX HD 5970 Eyefinity 6 4GB card for sale on eBay! CURRENT BID $5100!!! http://bit.ly/cSuUD7"

    Theo Valich (Twitter - April 23, 2010, 7:55am): "According to CA Penal Code, Section 458, this is Grand Theft. Thus, punishment is much more severe."

    Terry Makedon (Twitter - April 23, 2010, 8:03am): "RT @theovalich: Is $5100 a record for a gaming GPU Theo?"

    Theo Valich (Twitter - April 23, 2010, 8:14am): "@CatalystMaker $5100 would be a record. Especially when it comes bundled with jail sentence and more than double that in penalties."

    Theo Valich (Twitter - April 23, 2010, 8:17am): "I have severe doubts considering "stolen" XFX 5970 card, as it is a Grand Theft. Contacting Long Beach Police department to investigate."

    Theo Valich (Twitter - April 23, 2010, 8:18am): "@CatalystMaker Terry, if this is a PR stunt, it is liable, no matter how you sugarcoat it. I have to check... and it's two GPUs Terry :p"

    Theo Valich (Twitter - April 23, 2010, 8:20am): "@CatalystMaker In any case - a pathetic PR stunt. Still, XFX is getting a call from 5-O, and leave them explaining. Love that PR ;)"

    Clearly XFX think its a good idea to invest in the same 'oh it got lost/stolen' as Apple do.

    Maybe they should sort out their RMA procedure before they waste time on this bollocks.
