I reserve judgement until I hear the other side of the story. It all depends on if these items were advertised as new, or, if you were looking for the best price you could get and the retailer offered you used parts and side counter items in an effort to save you money and made the deal with you on the basis. That being said, I myself have been screwed with "new" parts in the past, so it would not surprise me.
Going through the trash disposal section with the number of newbie requests for $100 guns and supercheap deals, I would not be surprised if this is the case here.
