    There are loads of them on there and they can be reported but very little if anything is done at all.

    The old saying of "If it looks to good to be true" comes to mind every time I see something like this.

    I remember OCUK selling 1Tb Samsung HDD's for a dirt cheap price and when one of them died on me, it took nearly 2 months to get it RMA'd because the drives were not meant to be sold in the UK.

    I buy a fair amount of parts on AliExpress and other Chinese eBay style outlets, tonnes of fake cards on there!

    People selling 780's for £100, its the memory bandwidth on the provided specs that gives it away. Usually GDDR3, still physically large cards but obviously some kind or frankenstine rebrand!
