Florida man accused of selling fake, broken Cisco devices from China to hospitals, schools, military
Saturday, 09 July 2022 07:56

A Florida man has been accused of selling to hospitals, schools, and others fake and malfunctioning Cisco equipment imported from China.

We're told the CEO imported – for a fraction of the price of real Cisco systems – tens of thousands of older, lower-end devices from China and Hong Kong, and flogged them as new, genuine, and higher-end expensive Cisco machines.
