    Is this a scam?

    It seems way too good to be true to me. I don't shop online a whole lot, so how can I tell if this is a scam website? It just seems that $850 for a kit that should cost at least $1300 it too good to be true.

    Re: Is this a scam?

    now hilari.. don't make me get up a 'let me google that for you' link

    Here:

    http://thoughts-of-dave.blogspot.com...ka-rogers.html

    It's a blog, but its the second thing that came up in the search for 'Rogers camera' on google... first thing was their website.

    I guess it is a scam.. of sorts.

    Read through what the people are saying about it.. and the comments.

    I'd avoid it. Stick to newegg

    edit---

    and here

    As a rule, the first thing that happens is a high-pressure salesman will call. He will attempt to sell you a variety of items you "just got to have" if you own a D3X. Things like extended warranty, CF cards, cleaning kits, lenses, box, manuals, and a kitchen sink. When you don't buy the extras, at a extremely high markup, he starts the pressure. In the end, you pay for the extra items or you don't get the camera. You buy the extras and the camera will cost more than the price from honest dealers.

    Re: Is this a scam?

    yeesh that blogg makes it pretty clear i reckon...

    i agree, if it looks to good to be true...
    not to mention, if i want to buy something that big and expensive, i buy somewhere that will give me warantee, and somewhere that i can go back and yell at someone when it goes wrong...

    Before you ask, yes I am a b!tch...
    But I am an honest b!tch.

    Humm... it has the word "scam" within the web address...... coincidence?

    I'd stick to newegg, or eBay! I'm a fan of eBay. Just be sure their feedback is at least above 90%, and be sure they have hundreds of feedback.

    Oh, and DO NOT b uy outside of the US. (Learnt the hardway)

    Also check out keh.com. I've been referred to them by several photographers over the years.
