Please note that this position is not office based for now because of my frequent travels and tight schedules, it's a part-time work from home for now and the flexibility means that there will be busier weeks than others.

    Please explain how/why this is a scam. I responded to an ad on Craigslist & got a similar response from Adorama. But the guy called himself Eric Collins

    I got the same exact email in response to a craigslist ad. I googled it and found people all over the country have gotten this response. Not going there.

    ...Same letter here too, 3 weeks after applying. And no employer of any sort should give a "provisional" appointment to someone they've never even spoken to. He/they're probably collecting people's personal information.

    This is an obvious scam. I just received a very, very similar email today after responding to a job posting on
    Craigslist also. This time, the email is from a guy named Jason Macuch. Apparently, he's in the Ukraine right now if you care. The company name is New York Insurance Company. Just a reminder for us to do our homework and don't just trust everyone on line. A company will give you an address and easy contact information before they give you their Dun and Bradstreet number. If the information is that confidential, they wouldn't just email it to you without knowing anything about you including your name!

    Same grievance. I got a response near identical to the above, in response to a short-term job ad on craigslist: .

    Can anybody get them off craigslist?

    I purchased a brand new Konica Minolta printer magicolor 1600W from . It arrived to me as broken, and would not print the colors as expected. My understanding, as a retailer, is responsible for customer service, but they refused straightly. They left me to deal with manufacturer. I wonder why they call themselves retailer if do not take responsibility for replacing the DOA stuff. However, I ended up wasting more than 2 hours with manufacturer, but still not solved. I guess now I have to get a refurbished printer in spite of paying the price of new printer. Adorama is lier and thief, some of their attitude:

    1. They dont honor their 30 day return policy. Out right lier.
    2. Their free shipping is not really free, if you even want to return a DOA item, they charge 40 USD for it.
    3. They are not retailer, they just recycle the second hand items (my printer box was already open and re-sealed)
    4. Its worth spending few extra bucks at amazon, or new egg, who just send the RMA with once sentence email.

    Buyers, I just burnt my 120 bucks, hope this review will save yours. Best of luck.

    Firstly, please accept my deepest apologies. I'm unable to identify your transaction from your posting, but I can promise you that we absolutely will take this item back in accordance with our 30-day returns period. I can only think that the CS rep you spoke to mis-understood, or was perhaps not trained sufficiently well.

    Could you please email me directly with your order number: [protected] so that I can arrange this for you?

    Once again my apologies, and I do look forward to hearing back from you and making this right for you.
