I'm just trying to come up with a reason for the fudged serial numbers.
One picture showed a blanked-out serial number. That could be to prevent someone from tracking down the source of the camera - who sold the camera to a gray-market importer. Canon would probably want to know if one of their authorized dealers was doing this.
