    Do not do it! These guys are crooks! Do not do business with them! I can not stress this enough! Stay away from them! They will sell you warranties through companies that do not even exist! These guys should be shut down! Look at the googl street view of the store! That will gve you an idea of what low-life's you are dealing with! Do not do it!

    Go to google street views and you will see this address is an abandon building. 3518 Flatlands Ave, Kings, NY, 11234
    I was going to order a D7100 for $749 from this company but, checked street view and decided not to order from them.

    Re: Canon PowerShot SX150 Review: Zoom On a Budget Discussion

    Yeah they got me too, just replying in hopes it will help some one not get scammed. This place is a scam, be careful. They have the lowest price on a canon camera but call the next day saying you bought a international version with no software, warranty, battery, and the screen is in Chinese. Of course the site says something completely different. The will be a jerk on top of it all.

    It's the old bait and switch.

    Sucks they got my private information. Now I have to go the bank and cancel my card.

    They did the same thing to me. These people should be put out of business. I wish I had looked at the reviews before purchasing from AJRichie.
    The manager was rude and obnoxious...the sales department hung up on my 3 times...oddly, I was just calling to clarify something that
    did not arrive with my purchase. It would have been an easy fix and I wouldn't have know any better. The cleverly " bundled" my purchase...
    camera, a stupid camera bag that is a 'throw away', and additional batteries and charger. The manager told me to send a cashiers
    check for $89.00 to cover their 15% stocking fee and their shipping costs (which they advertise as free)...all this for a lousy $195 camera.

    If I had used my AMEX card I would have them assist me in refunding my money, but I used my Capitol One card and the customer
    service there was useless....I'm in sales and I tell people if "it looks too good to be true..it probably is" and woe to the consumer
    who still believes in Santa Clause...

    Stay away. I ordered the Nikon D7000 with 18x105 lenses for $729. The next morning I get an email saying " for my safety call to confirm purchase". That was the first red flag. I by hundreds of items on the internet and never saw that before. After about 8 minutes on hold I get the "I see you ordered the internation model" with not battery or charger and no warranty. Well Red flag number 2. Then, if you want to get the American model it will cost 1100 dollars, They are available for less. I say I didn't see anything about international product. he claims it right there on the web site. It is not. I went and checked, first it took quite a whil;e to find the add, when I did there was NO mention of international model or not having charger or anything else. And they had the "US warrantee model at 2499, more than douyble what it is selling for. The guy got nasty, telling me I should have seen it, blah, blah blah. I told him to cancel the order and I would check it out and see if I wanted to reorder. He tells me if I cancel I would have to wait 2 weeks before ordering. That was the final red flag. Canceled and would strongly reccomend people be very careful if they decide to deal with this company. I never will.

    This reminds me of the sleazy bait and switch camera stores in NYC decades ago.

    THIS IS A SCAM COMPANY. BAIT AND SWITCH WITH PRICES AND HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. BELLIGERENT AND UNTRUSTWORTHY. THEY SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN..DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE!!!!!!!! ..... I found an ad for Olympus tough tg-2 camera for $209. I purchased it from AJrichie on may 10th. I then get email saying i need to confirm my purchase before transaction is complete. I call and I am told they are waiting on it from overseas. Plus did I know it doesn't come with a battery? I thought it was odd for an electronic device to not have a battery. I questioned it and the customer service guy was rube to me about questioning and said I could cancel my order. I told them to just send it. I send three email over the next 5 weeks and call. The hours of operation are different on the website and different on the emails. I get ahold of someone and give them my order number on June 2nd or 3rd. I am told the shipment from overseas has been delayed but i should be getting the camera on June 11th. It is now June 17th and I call to see where the camera is. This is now 5 weeks since I purchased the camera. I am told they are a wholesaler and the product is back ordered from the vendor. Then I am asked " if I intended on purchasing the Malaysian version of the camera?" I say what's the difference? " they said they would be happy to sell me the american version which normally goes for $449 but they would sell it to me for $349." I am now speaking to a supervisor named robert or ronald.I say "no I would like the camera I purchased at the price that was quoted to me. He then gets nasty to me and asks where else am I going to purchase the camera for that price?" I said," that is not the point. I ordered this camera at this price. It is olympus and it is made overseas regardless. There are no different versions. I say this is horrible customer service and I have been misled and I am going to rake them over in reviews of the company on the internet." He says" we are a wholesaler that supplies Ryder, overstock.com and B&H Photo video. It doesn't matter because he is going to get my money or anyone else some other way from another internet company." I bad mouth ajrichie, they will get paid by these other companies."nThis was a classic bait and switch and they still have my credit card number and info. I tried to go to my account that was set up but I no longer had access. Ronald quoted me this statement as proof that they were completely in their rights " This is only a confirmation of your internet order, it is not an Invoice, and does not constitute proof of sale, All Orders need to be Verified prior to being billed and shipped, and you will receive your final invoice with your order." THIS IS A SCAM COMPANY. BAIT AND SWITCH WITH PRICES AND HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. BELLIGERENT AND UNTRUSTWORTHY. THEY SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE. please do something about these people. they do not deserve to practice there business.
