Anyone Received Opened “New” Items from Amazon?

Has anyone ordered new items from Amazon (not another vendor via Amazon) but received a used item instead? What did you do with the item?


As part of a hardware upgrade, I purchased an inexpensive Canon scanner, the CanoScan LiDE 220. When I opened the box, I found a few additional items – Post-it notes of reminders and bills.


Looking at the packing list, it looks like all the items are there, but I haven’t yet tried out the scanner itself. If it does work, should I keep it or simply return it on principle? The scanner was unlocked during shipping so I don’t know if this will have operational repercussions later.

    I’d send it back. You paid for it. Unless you found something juicy with which you could blackmail the previous owner with. ?
