If a crime is committed using a computer it's actually standard procedure to confiscate anything that can store data because it may contain evidence. Obviously this would only happen if they suspected the OP was in on the crime but it's a possibility in the eyes of the cops/feds. The police love to go on "hunches" which sometimes prove to be false so that's why it's important for the OP to document EVERYTHING. Just because you're innocent doesn't mean the cops will take your word for it.

If we want to get technical here it could be the local police, FBI, Secret Service, or all of the above.

I wondered why I got that brand new x fi titanium for 65.00 and it came from newegg.I also get a 9800gtx+ really cheap.I was curious as hell as to why they were coming in newegg boxes brand new straight from jersey.This was 5 or 6 months ago.

I was going to say maybe he works at newegg and steals the newegg boxes... but if they come with slips then it's another story.

I just hope nobody ever reports me since I've sold stuff and ship them in newegg boxes. I always sent stuff I sell in boxes I get from things I bought. I just love recycling packing material to save a few bucks

Edit: 6850 for 140 bucks not bad at all. It almost makes me want to buy 2 instead of gettin g a 6950.

Newegg may be really relaxed about shipping to an address other than the bill-to one so he's likely just using stolen CC's to order the merchandise directly to you. It's essentially an easy way to cash out stolen credit cards and use you to launder the money without you being aware of it. Unfortunately, this puts you in a situation where cops will come knocking at your door at some point down the road.

What I'd do:

Initiate contact with the police. Call the non-emergency number and explain the situation. Let them know what happened and that you are suspicious of the transaction and you want them to make a report on it. Worst case they may act as if you're annoying but you're essentially buying yourself insurance. If it does end up being stolen you'll be able to say "Hey, on DATE I filed a police report regarding this matter. I saved everything regarding the transaction too. I'm the victim!" This way, worst case they just take the card.

You may think this is going way too overboard but it really isn't. If you decide to take the "well it's his problem, not mine" attitude you will appear like you have something to hide. If the cops do come knocking, and they decide you appear nervous, you'll likely face several hours of intense questioning. Your PC's, external HDD's, cell phones, etc may all be temporary or even permanently confiscated too.

Good luck.
You got this bang on.

The local police will most likely be notified in a case like this. Same thing happened to a friend - cops showed up.

Wow, and I thought I was paranoid! Welcome to the club.

My spider senses are tingling on this one, Sounds like CC fraud to me.

My rule of thumb if it sounds too good to be true its probably not, or its fraud.
