You can never be too careful even from a retail store. In Lansing, Michigan a gentleman recently bought a $500 digital camera from Best Buy, only to get home and open the box to discover no camera.

Best Buy investigated and said it could not confirm whether the man was lying or not. They denied to give him a new camera. The man seemed to be a reasonalble person according to the news article and even he said he could'nt blame Best Buy for their stance. So, he's out $500 bucks.

Moral: always open the box before leaving the store.

I recently took back to Best Buy a Fuji E550 and exchanged it for a Canon A95 and the customer service person never checked to returned camera box.
