Butterfly Labs caught allegedly faking CE certification, bitcoiner gets his miner seized in Germany.

From BitcoinTalk:


one of the german community member posted in the german section that his BFL got seized by the customs. They believe that the CE Zerification isá non-complian and fictional. áThey also failed to have a EU conformity declaration and a user handbook with information.

The main reason why it got a suspect by the customs: they included a american power cord in the package! Holy moly what would’ve happend if the user used that cable? USA(120volt)(germany 230volt)

That guy would be burned by now.

The package goes now to the Office of the Federal President for further inspection. áIt MAY happen that Butterflylabs gets “blacklisted” by the european custums and all packages that go in the EU gets seized!!!
