A large cargo of graphics cards EVGA had a nice trip across the Pacific Ocean.
Last November, a full shipment of EVGA-signed graphics cards was stolen from a truck departing from San Francisco. It was then a question of very varied cards since the manufacturer mentioned retail prices of between 329.99 and 1,959.99 dollars.

The business is now experiencing a surprising rebound as customers of a Vietnamese reseller, Nguyễn Công PC, have purchased EVGA graphics cards.
What was their surprise to discover when registering with the manufacturer that their new acquisition was in fact from the stolen load several months ago. The reseller claims his good faith, arguing that his wholesaler would have confirmed the completely legal origin of his cards.
The situation is to say the least incongruous, especially as the Vietnamese dealer does not seem to be a small shop. For buyers, things are even more delicate, because they have bought stolen products and the question of the guarantee arises logically. It remains to know the reaction of EVGA to this story.
EVGA advised customers to keep an eye out for any of the cards on sale sites like eBay. We haven’t heard much about them since the crime, but it has recently been revealed that a Vietnamese store, NCPC, was selling some of the stolen products.
The merchant responded in writing to the consumer, indicating that they would refund the cost of the cards and return them to the source who supplied the stolen products. NCPC stated that it was also a victim of the act because it was unaware the cards had been stolen, however not first checking the serial numbers is surprising, especially given that the cards appear to have been purchased for less than the regular selling price.
