You're almost guaranteed to run into deadbeat buyers nowadays too. I sold my Athlon 6400+ CPU on ebay back in November and the guy opened a dispute claiming it was a lower clocked version of the 6400+ (there is only one). After listening through his bs list of "certifications" on the phone, eBay staff and I called him out for lying when we got a CPU-Z link from him (what an idiot).

See, there is another problem. Even if the buyer isn't a slick thief, he might just be an idiot.

It sounds like the guy you are talking about was running a board that supported the 89 watt version of the Athlon 64 6000+ and he thought he could just swap it out with the 125 watt Athlon 64 6400+. If he knew how to upgrade the BIOS it might have actually run the new chip at the correct speed (assuming it even supported 125 watt chips).
