Just a few weeks ago, Big Value sent someone a 5D MIII with a counterfeited serial number. A few weeks prior to that, someone received a 5D MIII with obvious dirt on it and a fingerprint on the sensor. A few months ago, several people received a 5D MIII with missing parts such as the battery, charger, and eye-piece. Many asked for refunds, but had to eventually go to their credit card companies to get their money back.
They aren't even close to cleaning up their act.
Scary indeed I will be waiting for Canon to have the referbs back in stock, the ebay price is tempting.....
