good or bad website

  1. It's obviously a scam site. No legitimate seller would combine the 5DII with EF-S lenses as this "seller" is doing.
     
  2. I am going to call the number during buisness hours, and hear what they have to say, If only these prices were real haha
     
  3. I wouldn't bother.
     
  4. run away, run away
     
  5. No question about it, scam all the way.
    100% sure!
    I wouldn't call unless you like people having your number to add to a sales list.
     
  6. Contacting one of these outfits from your phone or computer is like Brer Rabbit taking hold of a tar baby. Micah is right. Look, don't get in touch.
     
  7. http://www.resellerratings.com/store/DealForDigital
     
  8. I wonder how they stay in buisness as a scam, if so many people had the same issues, oh well, they are the wrong
    side of photography, their loss haha
     
  9. People are hungry for a "bargain" and many of them are also stupid (or at least ignorant). That's how these guys stay in business.
    If people actually send $25,000 to Nigerian princes on the promise of a 1000% return on their money they're certainly dumb enough to attempt to buy cameras at ridiculously low prices. You don't need many "customers" to rurn a profit when you're running a business out of your basement.

You don't need many "customers" to turn a profit when you don't actually sell anything at the price you advertise and you're running a business out of your basement where your only expenses are a website and a phone line. Some don't even have a phone line.
     
  11. The overall quality of the site should ring alarm bells, it's clearly been prepared in minutes by someone who doesn't know what they're doing. A quick look at the HTML confirms it.
     
  12. Derek's link is a reminder that the place to go to see about how a store (in general) is doing is
    http://www.resellerratings.com/
    Enter the store name in the search box and even if there is not a numerical listing, there may be comments as in the case of this "vendor".
    Another "fun" site to look at is the collection of store 'front' photos at
    http://donwiss.com/pictures/BrooklynStores/
    If you go there, you will see why I put the word front in quotation marks.
    DealForDigital is no. 176 in the list
     
  13. Great sites, Jim. I bookmarked them!
     
  14. There exchange policy isn't very good;
    No 30 day money back guarantee?
    EXCHANGES

    In the unlikely event you are not satisfied with any or all of the products, they may be exchanged within 5 days of the delivery date. All components must be returned in a "like-new" condition. Any return product must be in the original packaging; including the original manufacturer's box inserts, documentation, warranty cards (not filled out or tampered with), manuals, and all accessories; and accompanied by the original receipt. Do not mark or deface original manufacturer boxes in any manner. We will not accept returns if packaging is not in its original condition - we will return such items to you at your expense. All returns are subject to a minimum 10% restocking fee. This fee is dependent on the condition of the goods and the packaging material. If you reject that return shipment, DealforDigital.com reserves the right to liquidate the inventory and withhold credit.Shipping charges for orders shipped are none refundable in any way. All costs related to return shipping must be paid by the customer. All return credits will be made 24hrs after merchandise is received for verification purposes excluding original shipping costs. If the item you are exchanging for is of less value than the item you are returning, you will be refunded the difference on the same card that was used to purchase the product.
    And then the Canceling and order before and after check out, you have a 10% cancellations free that will be charged to cancel the order?
    CANCELING AN ORDER BEFORE AND AFTER CHECKING OUT

    You can cancel the order process at any time while shopping by clicking on the Shopping Cart button and deleting each item from your shopping cart. Once an order has been placed, processed, charged on credit card and sent to be filled by our shipping dept there is a 10% cancellation fee that will be charged to cancel the order. Any orders that are canceled before it has been charged and sent to be shipped will have no penalty.
    These terms are both very not in your favor, I would be cautious when working with this company.
     
  15. Things worth doing in response to stories like this:
    • Watch out for friends and acquaintances who might fall victim to scams and warn them away.
    • Remember that "if it sounds to good to be true, it most likely is."
    • Don't contribute to the belief that the cheapest deal is always the best deal. (Sometimes it can be, but in most cases a difference of a few bucks is trivial.)
    • In cases where someone actually gets ripped off by a scam operation, report it to the state attorney general - if they can't help you directly, they can help you figure out where else to go with your claim.
    Things NOT worth doing:
    • Don't even consider buying from fly-by-night scammers offering unbelievably low prices.
    • Don't waste your time looking for unreal and impossible deals.
    • Don't waste your time or emotional energy dealing with scammers in other ways - there is not positive outcome for you.
     
  16. Run away, don't walk.
