Seagate Technologies Seagate Hard Drives - Serial number on hardware different from serial number on packaging! Scotts Valley, Texas
I initially assumed Best Buy was scamming me, but after reading all of the scam reports here on Seagate, it is perfectly clear that Best Buy and Seagate are partnering on this particular ripoff scheme. I had noticed that in recent years, Best Buy would find ways to avoid doing exchanges/refunds even in the most clear-cut cases where the customer was eligible for such, so I have finally learned my lesson.
From now on, I will always ask for any electronics item I'm going to purchase to be opened to make sure the serial number on the product matches the serial number on the packaging. If the store won't allow the item to be opened, I'll either go off and open it myself, or buy the product elsewhere.
But I will never step foot into another Best Buy or buy another Seagate product.
