Stolen EVGA RTX 30 cards found in Vietnam

A truckload of EVGA graphics cards reported stolen in October has reportedly been discovered on the opposite side of the globe. The GeForce card cargo was stolen on its way from San Francisco to Southern California, but it has since been discovered in Vietnam, far from its intended destination. A user has evidence that the stolen goods were being resold at retail, according to the Vietnamese Gaming Drama Facebook group (hat tip to VideoCardz for spotting it).

Following the package robbery last year, EVGA stated that the truck included crates full of GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards with MSRPs ranging from $329.99 to $1,959.99 per unit.

EVGA Product Manager Jacob Freeman issued an appeal for information about the stolen goods, including a dedicated email contact for anyone with more information about the thieves or the haul’s whereabouts. Freeman advised potential buyers of stolen goods in the United States about the criminal repercussions. Furthermore, Freeman stated that anyone who purchased or otherwise received one of these stolen graphics cards would not be eligible for product support, warranties, or upgrade offers. EVGA also kept track of the serial and part numbers of the stolen GPUs.

We speculated in our heist report about the lost graphics cards being picked up by a crypto mining business or sold off via online auction or social media sales channels. The truth, on the other hand, could be even stranger. After arriving in Vietnam, the cargo appears to have been purchased by a big PC component vendor, who is now offering this GeForce RTX 30 series stock with a 1-month warranty and lower-than-usual rates.

The customer who posted the above-linked Facebook post appears to have purchased an EVGA branded GeForce RX 3080 Ti from Cong Nguyen PC’s Ho Chi Minh City location. The customer claims that they brought the card home and installed it on a computer, but that it would not register with EVGA because it was “on a prohibited list.”

The PC store is a large establishment in Vietnam that has previously made headlines for displaying crypto mining rigs crammed with hard-to-find and often limited-edition Nvidia GPUs (e.g., Asus Gundam Series GPUs). Of course, not dealing with stolen goods is the appropriate thing to do, and we hope Cong Nguyen PC store contacts EVGA, as it must now be aware of the source of this EVGA graphics card shipment if it was previously unaware.
