Is the supplier on Alibaba/AliExpress/Amazon ?   If so no risk as they have full protection if it’s either faulty, fraudulent or doesn’t arrive.

But I wouldn’t trust the ones on eBay, etc only.

LCSC is also trustworthy as a Chinese distributor

Subject: [sdiy] Buying Parts from Questionable Sites

Hey All,

I have a diy project I would like to do and in the past I almost exclusively use Mouser for most of my components. There is a specific resistor network that is out of stock everywhere, but when I look at octopart, there are "unauthorized dealers" that seem to have a supply of them. I am a little nervous about buying from them though.

The component in question is EXB-E10C103J and I would likely only buy about 25 of them.

If anyone with more experience buying components could let me know where they would trust getting them from, I would be very appreciative.

Thanks,

Shawn
