There is no sticker inside the box! Some information printed on the box is wrong!

Jump to solution

I have bought an intel Core i5 6400 boxed processor from a retailer. There is a fan, guide and the CPU itself in the box. But there is no sticker sticking on the last page of the guide.

 

Intel Core i5 6400 comes with intel HD graphics 530 but on this box it is printed "Intel HD Graphics 630"!

 

The partial serial number on the CPU does not match with last digits of serial number printed on the box. (difference in one digit)

 

Am I being scammed? Have I bought a fake one?

 

(The motherboard I have does not support newer generations. That's the reason I have bought a 6th generation processor.)

Yep, you have received a used processor.

Take the box back to the place of purchase and get a refund.

Thanks for your replies! I should have bought from a trusted vendor. They even don't admit they have sold me a used processor!
