Fake Chinese Chip Scandal.

Chen Jin became China's national high-tech hero overnight when he "invented" China's first homegrown computer chip dubbed "Hanxin".

Turned out, he simply scratched away the logo from a Motorola chip with sandpaper and replaced it with his own!

Two years later, according to press accounts, the whistleblowers came forward. Some colleagues had a dispute with Chen and they began contacting the government. They claimed, according to the media, that migrant workers had simply scratched away the name "Motorola" from a chip and replaced it with "Hanxin."
