FotoConnection Complaint - Bait and Switch
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- I ordered a Canon SD1000 from FotoConnection.com and thought I would get a nice deal. Four days after placing the order I get an email to contact Todd@eshopperspro4.com to confirm the order. I tried several times to reach him and finally determined this is a shady operation. Started to check up on them as I should have before ordering and found this was typical of them. They finally called me and explained the camera I ordered was the Chinese version which basically just means it doesn't come with the peripherals. They also tried to sell me more memory, longer lasting battery, etc... I had them cancel the order immediately and now I can only hope they don't bill me.
I also learned they create extra charges and have been known to increase the approved amount for billing. Fortunately I copied everything and am prepared to file a complaint with the DA in New York. They have over 470 BBB complaints.
BTW, there is no "Chinese" version according to the people at Canon and in regard to including the CD, battery charger, battery, memory and instructions.
