Intel Engineers Busted Selling Test CPUs On eBay

I have a great idea, let's throw away a career as an engineer at Intel so we can make a few bucks on eBay. I am astounded how stupid some people can be, it's not like they weren't going to get caught.

Detectives had been tracking the suspects since September, conducting a raid on their homes last month, taking 178 sample CPUs آ– worth an estimated $82,500آ—into police custody. According to the CIB’s statement, the suspects admitted to selling more than 500 Intel engineering sample CPUs since 2009.
