Almost got ripped off

I was looking to buy a Digital SLR and found a good deal on the net. Infact it was too good a deal. I was looking for Canon 400D (aka XTi) which usually sells for close to $600 for body only and bestpricecamera.com was selling it for $269. I thought it sounded a bit of too much of a good thing. I kept watching the site for few days and surprisingly the price kept falling every few days. That didn’t sound right.

Then I did some digging for reviews about this site and found that they are major bait-n-switchers and even worse, many people reported that their credit card numbers were stolen and fraudulent purchases made on it in the next few days. The website has been reported as a fraud to BBB etc. There is too much evidence pointing to bad things about bestpricecamera.

Lesson learnt is to stick to major merchants and research the website if you are new to it.
