86th street photo / bait and switch
Do not trust this company with your credit card! I've been waiting over 2 months for a panasonic lumix dmctz5 to be in stock, they have stated that it would be in stock 2-3 weeks repeatedly, well today I call and was hung up on 3 times and put on hold for over 20 minutes waiting for a manager to speak to me — when he did answer he put me on hold to check availability of the camera, needless to say he transfered me to another rude person who told me that the camera has always been in stock but sells for 288.00. The item is listed on their website as 175.00, and it shows all factory items included along with it! I ask him why is it that I can get the camera today for over 100.00 dollars more than advertised and he told me that the 175.00 dollar camera didnt include anything, not even the 1 yr warrantee! This is contrary to what I was told last month when techon digital pulled the same crap, I called 86th street photo and they assured me that techon was a scam company and 86th was a legit company, I asked them last month if all was included for the 175.00 price and they said yes! — all these people want you to do is enter your card # online so that your money gets tied up to the point where you would rather pay the extra to get what you should have gotten to begin with!-bait and switch! — they didnt get me because ive been down this road before, if you find something online, call up the place and order it over the phone — at least its safer that way — needless to say 86th photo and video is a scam company, if you were foolish enough to pay the 288.00 dollars and wanted to return it for whatever, id be willing to bet you get screwed!
