An anonymous reader writes "It seems that there are the first fake Raspberry-Pi sites out there: 'It's just been drawn to our attention that there's a Russian site (www.raspberrypi.ru) purporting to be an official reseller, which is already offering preorders. [..] If you see a site offering preorders or claiming to be an official reseller at the moment, it's a fake. Please don't send them your money. Initially, this site will be the only place you can buy a Raspberry Pi, and we are not offering preorders.'"

    I have read slashdot everyday for nearly 10 years and I have no clue what "Raspberry Pi" is. Seriously how hard would it be to have the article say "Raspberry Pi, the $25 dollar PC" or something like that?

    More important, why is this article even posted? I mean we could post dozens of articles a day if we follow the formula "site found selling fake [technology]."
