Adorama Refurb Lenses--Scam of Not???

I've been looking for a specific lens (24mm f1.4) and will take a Canon refurb.
Soooo I've been checking Adorama's refurbs.

Here's what I found.

Adorama's Canon refurbs are warranted by Adorama for 90 days. To the best of my knowledge all Canon refurbs are warranted for 90 days by Canon.

Mon. morning I called Canon customer service/tech support and they did indeed tell me that all Canon refurb lenses were warranted by Canon for 90 days.

Next I call Adorama and am told that they are in fact refurbished by Canon but have the Adorama warranty NOT a Canon warranty.

Next I call Canon AGAIN and speak to a different person. I am AGAIN told that if they were in fact refurbed by Canon that they would have the standard Canon 90 day warranty.

What gives? Sortta sounds like someone is lying doesn't it?

Where were these lenses refurbed? By Joe in his garage while sucking up a six pack?
