    So you spent a big chuck of money on ebay. I don't buy anything from ebay except hand tools. Amazon or Newegg all the way

                                      So I guess the lesson we learned is "Don't buy shit on Ebay, it's a scamaporium". Get a "CPU" off of Ebay and suddenly your on a NSA watch list and ring the bell if you try to leave the country.

                                                                        This is the same terminology you use to call Ebay Customer service.. Tell them it is "Not as described". Then tell them you want a return address label to send back the item. The Seller is now responsible for return shipping and refund of your money.
                                                                        It is also a good idea to use the links in the my ebay summary page. Next to the item you just bought, there are links. Select "Contact Seller" then "Item not as described" to start the process, at some point you can submit a photo as evidence, or serial numbers, or differences between what you received and the Authentic item you paid for. They have a couple days to respond. But keep calling Ebay and PayPal customer service and be stern about getting your money back on the fraudulent/imposter item.
                                                                        What the seller did is fraud. And because they sent it thru USPS, it is now Postal Fraud.
