It seems that all the big online people have 3rd party sellers. It's a shame because it only takes a few dodgy sellers to ruin a big company's reputation that took generations or decades to build.

Oh NewEgg, what has become of you!

Actually I just used their marketplace not too long ago to buy some stuff. Technically I could have used eBay (and it would have been cheaper), but I had a gift card with a few $$ to finish off, so figured why not.

Basically the NewEgg marketplace has pretty much the same crap as eBay and AliExpress, but for higher prices... and with a much shittier search engine (seriously NewEgg, your search engine is useless ATM!)

That's 20 cents per shit cap!
Sure a 35V 1000 uF Jap cap from Digikey or Mouser will probably run you close to a $1 or more... but at least it's not going to be some volatile turd that spoils as soon as you open the bag.

If it ships out of China, consider it suspect at the very least.

As long as there's money to be made (i.e. suckers to fall for their tricks) this will never stop.

I reported it to thier investigation team, as 'fraud'. Included attached image.

They asked what company I worked for and what proof I had. Did nothing.

I got fake stuff from Newegg years ago. they were quick to give a refund. I posted a bad review and the seller went away. probably just changed their name
