XFX Alert Stolen 5970 Black Editions


Dear XFX Customers,

In light of recent events, we have come to suspect that one of our 5970 Black Edition Limited cards may have been compromised. In our current inventory check of this limited run of 1,000 individually serialized pieces, #68 has been unaccounted for. Due to evidence of a security breach in our facility, we believe it to have been illegally obtained as the product has yet been released per the embargo date. Please be aware that the person responsible will be subject to persecution by law. If any news can be provided to lead us to the apprehension of the suspect, or you can provide us with any information, please report it to security@xfxforce.com. Please do not attempt to buy, trade, or barter for this unit. We thank you for your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Sincerely,
XFX

From theft (maybe) to marketing op. What a great idea. They want you to think "These things are so hot people are stealing them from the factory! I must have one!"

Possible but if caught doing such a thing wouldn't the downside way over value the upside? At any rate I sent them an email and inquired to find out if this is true. Fabe

Probably not fake, it was probably stolen by an employee. You'd be amazed at the stats on employee theft.
