Warning for Sellers Buying Lego Sets for Resale

A member of my Facebook group recently posted this story:

I went to Wal-Mart this morning to get a birthday present for my son and on my way out stopped to check the clearance aisle. I was looking through the toys when a woman walked up and started opening a box of the Lego 2011 advent calendar and removed the minifigs and put them in her box. At first I thought the box in her cart must have been missing the minifigs until I saw her do it to another box. I couldn't believe it! I was so stunned I just stood there looking at her; she just looked at me and walked away. I brought the open boxes to an employee and told them what happened and they said they weren't surprised. She said a man had just opened up a razor box and took out the refills right in front of her. (Reprinted with permission from original poster.)

Always carefully inspect these types of items even when purchasing them brand new at retail stores. You never know when this situation may have occurred, and if you are not paying attention and verifying the contents of a box, you may end up receiving negative feedback from a customer on eBay or Amazon.
