Second hand buy serial number disclosure?

Hi,

Possibly buying a camera off eBay and asking the seller to provide the serial number on the listing so can be certain that everything is correct.

Seller is saying "don't want to take the camera out of the box to look at bottom of the camera to get the number so the camera/box stays new"?

Reasonable? Shady?

Starting to think there is something shady going on and would like to pull out, hoping someone outbids me, hmm.

Also refusing to provide shutter count number since "camera is new in the box", so there is no shutter count.

What is normal shutter count for totally 'new' camera like that and does one assume it it truly zero if the camera is in a the box?
