Crazy story! Counterfeit parts are a big headache..
Watch out for well-made counterfeit parts. We always suggest getting the real deal from authorized distributors OR buy from bonded brokers: the only time we ever got bit by this was on a totally discontinued part unavailable through normal channels, and we got our money back because the US-based broker had a policy.
