Wisetronics.com / Bait and switch, rude, false advertising!
Placed order online for Sony DCR SR80 camcorder, was sent an email a few days later stating I needed to call back to confirm order... when I called I spoke to what sounded like a teenage kid... he was rude and attempted to hardsell extra batteries etc... I refused and then he stated the camera was backordered... would not answer questions and finally hung up on me... Also very strange... he asked for last three digits of credit card security code... hopefully my card isn't hit with fraud... A month later... no camera... still claim it was backordered however I had a friend call and they confirmed camera was in stock... "as long as you buy accessories... if not they tell you it's out of stock... forever until you cancel the order... I googled the company and there a hundreds of complaints just like mine... They are currently under investigation by the NY attorney General per several reports... STAY AWAY from these guys!!!
All these are related companies owned by same group of scammers:
I.N.S. Digital World,
Stargate Photo Inc.,
The Camera Whiz,
Wisetronics, 2845 86th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11223. The actual phone # is [protected]. The "owner???" is Shlomi Albaydadi & there are at least 3 in Brooklyn. I found all this on the NY City BBB website. I also filed a complaint with them to just get it on the record. At last count there are 21 complaints there. My next step is a complaint through the NY Attorney General office, you can download the form from their website. If everyone files a complaint maybe we can shut this guy down or better yet send him to jail.
