The scammer(s) managed to remove the Intel markings on top of the package and even place legitimate-looking Ryzen markings. People who do this type of scam are really looking for trouble if Amazon catches up to them. 

Specs: AMD RYZEN 7 1800X, Samsung SM961 M.2, 64 GB Corsair DDR4 memory (CMD32GX4M2B3000C15), MSI X370 Gaming Pro motherboard

    Quite an elaborate scam. I'm guessing it's Amazon US ? I'll check my freshly delivered Ryzen.
     
    Edit:
    Looks like I'm OK

    The amount of fraud these days is astounding.  Much of it can get stopped, but the sheer volume of (insert derogatory term against TOS here) who are determined to cheat others is saddening and angering.  When I was in CS, there were SOOOO many attempts at fraud, been in Fryes and picked up a box for software and could feel it was empty, so this is not surprising, but it sucks that this is the world we live in now.

    What's even more irritating is everyone ends up paying for it anyway through higher store prices or more restrictions on returns.

    The ole swap and drop, happens at my local brick and mortars, for example Walmart, a lot. Albiet not to this extent of fakery. Its extremely irritating that people feel the need to be dishonest. Hope they get caught and receive some sort of punishment for this blatant fraud.

    Anyone can sand off the top of a CPU and buy a $500 Chinese laser etching machine. Surprised they're using Socket 1366 i7 processors and not something even cheaper.
