They don't keep the boxes. They make new ones that looks like the originals. I mean, the fake products these days are almost impossible to spot. It's made even harder by the fact that manufactures themselves makes so many different boxings, for special events, specific retailers, regions and all that. You'd have to register your product at the manufacturers to figure out how old it is and by then that eBay or Amazon seller is vanished into thin air with your money.
But that's the point, it's amazon or eBay seller, not official stores. You will never catch every scam, but it's not gucci, electronics are far more trackable.
