In third world countries these CPUs can be easily sold in replacement of its original variant. This the money earned out of the said quantity will not be much but the purchaser might suffer as the CPUs are beta. But in these countries this does not matter much as there the market is already flooded with other duplicates, and they are used to with that.

this happens all the time. Unreleased Intel chips fetch big money from ebay by bloggers who want to review them.

Selling Engg samples on ebay, and what would they advertise it as? I think they were also cheating because saying they were samples would not have brought any buyers to them. Just plain dumb.
