Fake Samsung 870 EVO Came to 2 People in a different forum, Firmware number was fake, label was crooked, box content was missing, material was poor quality, and Samsung Magican software was also reporting that it was fake. Has anyone here experienced or heard of this situation?

no surprise to see counterfeit SSD, USB sticks are widely counterfeited at above 32GB
I have also seen tons of counterfeit RAM too
RAM? In what way? People can attach stickers of ''Crucial'' or ''Samsung'' to some lower tier ass manufacturer RAM, but the performance numbers should be the same if specs are equal in timings. Unlike SSDs and USBs, where you can literally get shit performance under some branded fake sticker.
