The trouble with chip resellers is that it's hard to know which ones are legit, and which ones are in the fake chip business.  There have been some articles in the trade press about chips being sold with false labels, typically with some sort of chip inside but not anything like what the number on the outside indicated.  You might get a memory chip instead of a microprocessor, for example, or a 7400 instead of something more valuable.
