Scam electronics stores on the net.

So I tried to buy a camera on the net. But instead of going through Amazon, I did one of those searches that give you the very cheapest price . . . and I rapidly learned why some places can undersell everyone else--you'll never get the equipment to the advertised price, since they'll do a bait and switch:

After placing an order on-line, consumers receive an e-mail instructing them to call the company to "confirm" their order. Once on the phone, sales representatives try to sell consumers extra batteries, accessories, and warranties, some of which are included with the camera. When consumers decline, their order is cancelled or they are told that their item is not in stock.

A couple of examples of scam artists are

Broadway Photo and 86th Street Photo and Video -- clicking on the links will take you to the site "resellerratings.com" and you'll see exactly what happened to me and a thousand others.

It is pretty amazing that the state of New York doesn't shut down this scam operators.

Shame on New York.
