Sealing boxes is no solution

I know for a fact that Nikon themselves hand out returned items unchecked into consumer hands again.

A few years ago I returned a 70-200 VRI, was eventually asked to communicate with the local Nikon office where they told me there was no stock and they were waiting for shipments from Japan. A short while later I got a call from them a lens had 'popped up', went to collect it and tested. Turned out the lens had a horrible difference between focus at the short (front focusing) and long (back focusing) ends. Obviously a returned item, the lens was unusable for even the most ignorant user.

My guess is they just re enter that kind of lenses into the chain until it stops coming back.
