In the article I read they say they were not believed by the store or Apple at first and only when they went to the consumer show that something was done. I too would have my doubts as would most people..... Not difficult to reseal a box.

When I buy electronics, I always open the box at the cashiers desk, right when I am paying. I have found hard drives in the wrong box (wrong RPM) and other hard-to-prove-later things. Even if a box is sealed, wrapped, and covered in industrial strength nylon, that still doesn't mean that someone hasn't tampered with it (may that be a customer or the shop itself, or an employee, who knows).
