    Hi All,

    "Camera Addict" eweb store @ "Everyprice.com" - Zumo450 for $343 - Anybody know anything about these guys? One of the cheaper prices around for the 450 but I wanted some feedback first.

    If I use them I will post my experience good or bad.

    Thanks,

    I just did a quick search and found many websites with feedback like this one..

    don't be fooled by the price, they are sleaze

    Very sleazy company. I order a LOT on-line and have NEVER encountered such a disgusting company as CameraAddict.com.
    I ordered an Olympus camera, after much research, they had a seemingly great price, and then received an e-mail a few days after placing the order asking me to call and "confirm" before they ship it to me. I never heard of such a thing, but thought it was for some security reason, and since I wanted my camera, I called the number in the e-mail. They had me call for a bait and switch....the person on the phone, who claimed to be a supervisor named Andy, tried to sell me a different model camera, then a more expensive package w/ the original camera, a rip-off battery, etc., it was unbelievable. He got very frustrated when I did not want to add on to my order. I said just send me the camera and he would not give it up, so I said to cancel the order and he hung up on ME!!! Do not waste your time with CameraAddict

    Hi All,

    Zumo450 - $343 @ "Camera Addict" on "Everyprice.com" Anybody ever use them?
    One of the cheapest prices around. Does not say "reconditioned", "opened item", or "rebuilt".

    I'd like some feedback before I "poke the hive". I'll let you know about my experience good or bad.

    never heard good thing from them, look at website reviews etc... seems just like the previous post is mentioning. Wait for amazon 429$ deals, way safer.

    :dohGood enuough. This is exactly why I asked.....

    I actually read that same post but didn't remember the seller. That's the post that made me go about it this way (ask fellow FFs first).

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Amazing how a biz can scr*w themselves by messing w/ customers.

    These goons are Prestige Camera in disguise. Same MO, same :topes , and to prove it I called and asked for the asshole that ripped off my dad 2 years ago and guess what? The SOB answered the phone.

    Never buy from them unless you want the hassle, lies, fotocopied BS instructions and a good ripoff.
