Buyer Beware! Fake Ryzen CPUs Found In The Wild

This is actually a really old scam, going all the way back the Pentium 4 days. The hustle goes like this; put a sticker on a low-end CPU (like the Celeron pictured below), put it in a high end processor package, sell as many as you can on eBay / Amazon, etc. until they ban your seller account. Rinse, repeat. Profit.
