  1. OH this is just great! Now I have to be extra careful whenever I shop at Hawally Bin khaldoon Street. But I am more surprised that this guy received his icore7 from NEWEGG.com and they are known to be a good hardware online retail store. So I assume that shopping online is not even 100% guaranteed either.

  2. Actually, it’s rumored that IPEX (neweggs’ supplier) is to blame, although IPEX itself could also be a victim scammed by another company, which in turn, could have been scammed by yet another supplier.
    makes you wonder how long the list goes :/
