Yup. A couple of years ago, I ordered 6 MP5 mags from the US. Customs held the order for about 2 weeks before sending them on to me.
Upon receipt of my package, I found they had not only opened and inspected my items, but had disassembled the mags completely. And they didn't even reassemble them. They just stuffed all the parts into a plastic bag, taped it up wiht CBSA tape and sent it on its way. They mangled up all the follower springs and lost one of the pins that holds the mags together in the process.
Luckily I was able to get the springs straightened out so the mags feed properly, and a finishing nail cut to size served as a good replacement pin. But it was really fucked that they could do that to my stuff and have no responsibility for the damage they caused.
