Watch out for Epson rebate scams

I just ordered an Epson R3000 (from B+H) and while shopping I noticed that a number of small merchants out there seem to be removing the UPC symbols from the boxes and still selling the units as "new".

At least some number of them are actually warning you "not eligible for rebate" or "UPC symbol removed", but I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few aren't bothering with the warning.

At the very least selling something as "new" with the UPC removed is an extremely shady practice, if not outright illegal. I have to wonder if Epson will even honor the warranty on a unit that was purchased without a UPC on the box.
