If brand new? Yes, it's a scam. Either it's fake, or perhaps stolen.

 

If used, that's a great deal but could be real.

so if i ever get it how do i check if it’s fake?

Get a high quality reference picture from TechPowerUp or so and compare the image to yours. If the Pin layout fits and nothing else looks odd (like the IHS and the numbers on the IHS seem correct) I would try booting up with it and check CPU-Z if you get that far. Another way would be checking what your BIOS reports it as.

These are pretty much the only things you can do without taking off the IHS.

You have to remember that if this is a scam (yet to be determined)... it's actions like this that perpetuate scams on eBay.

 

No scammer would sell a fake $600 CPU for less than $400 if people didn't buy them.

Last month I bought a 3900x from eBay for $400. The item was not functioning normal as stated. It appeared to have been over clocked to the point that it was no longer stable. I was able to install Windows, but the computer did crash several times during installation/updates. The CPU eventually stopped working the day after I received it. I didn't have to pay anything extra to return it and got my refund, but it did cost me time.

Sometimes - it depends on how elaborate the scam is.

 

Sometimes eBay has to eat the cost when refunding the scammed buyer.

 

Some people who get scammed though, literally don't do anything about it.

When did you actually finalize the purchase? Sellers are required to list their handling time.

I'm assuming Monday.

However, I wouldn't have bid on this.

image.png.fc665bdfdd368503ec406ec09043f673.png

It's new, but no returns, and new seller with no reviews.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.
