Techon Digital Cameras And Electronics Complaint - Misleading Pressure Sales
HOLTS SUMMIT, MO, MISSOURI -- I ordered a camera online from Techon Digital. The price was very competitive and I thought I was getting a good deal. The order went through, but in a short while I received an email to contact the company by phone to "confirm" my order. When I called, the representative insisted I needed a special memory card and a 5 hour battery or I wouldn't be able to use the camera. I told him I wasn't sure I wanted the camera if it needed all that special stuff. It was for a gift and I wanted to contact the person who the gift was for to see if they knew it needed special accessories. The sales rep put my order on hold. A short time later, I got another email to call again to another person. When I called, he too tried to insist I needed these special items, and offered special pricing for the added accessories. When I insisted I just wanted the camera, I was told that all of a sudden the order had to be canceled due to the item being out of stock, even though the web site showed the item was available "yes".
I am sure that the order was canceled by Techon Digital for no other reason than I didn't buy all of the add ons they tried to push off on me. This "bait and switch" tactic is very frustrating. No doubt I will never do business with them again and will do my best to tell people to be aware and not to go there either. They are a disreputable company and should be investigated!
