AJRichies - Scam
Online Purchase of DSLR - Complaint
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- After many weeks of searching I decided to buy a Canon T4i DSLR body from AJRitchies. I was directed to their web site by a reputable web reseller I regularly purchase from.
Price was good, $529.99, and promised delivery - not bad. Before they shipped my order I received a phone call late one evening from a guy (think his 'name' was Tom), purporting to check the delivery address. That was not the purpose of his call. He was hard-selling accessories. Batteries, memory cards and extended warranties. I refused to accept the warranty but agreed to purchase 2 batteries (1 Free) and one 'special' memory card. Cost approx $50.
The order arrived on January 2nd. Canon body, only one battery and an 8GB memory card. OK, looked fine until I checked the accompanying Invoice/Delivery note. I was dumbstruck - the figure on my document was $699.99. I was therefore paying $170 for two items with a value of $30, and I am being generous by suggesting that figure. All my attempts to contact them, telephone and emails have proved fruitless. I am now directing my dispute through the card division of my bank.
I have since researched AJRichies on the internet and discovered many buyers complaining about the service, lack of, and overcharging activities of this company. Wish I knew who to contact so I can have them closed.
Do not buy anything from this company.
