Today something interesting happened. I purchased a used late 2013 MBP 15in Retina with regular specs off of somebody I know. The serial number came up as invalid upon checking the website and was printed in 2 places on the machine instead of the usual one. That made me a little suspicious but it looked like a regular system otherwise. Interestingly enough the screen was peeling anti-glare coating all over the place, including middle of the screen, top and bottom. So I took it in to the local Genius Bar to see if they can do anything about that. Big mistake! They looked at it and couldn't find the serial either. Then they took it inside, came back and told me it was an (allegedly stolen) prototype machine! Of course that was exciting but now I'm out $1500 I paid for it as they won't return it and won't give me any credit. They told me somebody from Loss Prevention will be in touch but smart money says that at most they'll acknowledge the situation and won't reimburse me a single dollar. What do you guys think? Is there any sort of recourse for this? Any experience from anybody?
