The serial number on the camera that was shipped to me from BigValueInc is not even a good fake. It's OBVIOUS.
I know it is a fake because it is not on foil like the real ones, rather it is simply printed onto paper. The printing is all black (the real serial has a greyish tone to the background, with black letters which are printed into the rectangular space after the label is made. In the real serial, you can see very slight depression where the letters were pressed onto the foil. On the counterfeit, it is all one uniform, smoothe (black tone).
The counterfeit is slightly smaller than the real serial.
The counterfeit is cut poorly, where the "Canon" word has the "C" touching the edge of the sticker
The counterfeit is poorly glued to the body, with a corner poorly stuck down.
The counterfeit (since it is slightly smaller than the original) has some of the glue from the original sticker remaining around the perimeters.
Also, the serial number on the counterfeit does not match the serial on either the box, or the cameras bios. (you can easily check the serial number on the exif data if you think you have received a "BLACK MARKET" item from this retailer.
