Saw a fantastic price on the Canon T3i and it seemed too good to be true - turns out it was. I read a lot of reviews about how they try to upsell everything and the kitchen sink - the classic bait and switch. So I decided to call and look into the price and ask some questions.
The first question I asked: "Where was the camera manufactured - Japan or elsewhere?" he stuttered and said "of course it's made in Japan". I informed him that not all Canon's are made in Japan and any reputable dealer would know this immediately.
I asked if the item price of $529.99 was still available and he said "YES" without hesitation.
So that was a segway into my last question: I asked about was the upselling and how I read about the bullying sales reps forcing people to buy more accessories. I said I just want the camera and none of the BS.
Before I could finish the sentence he interrupted me and said the camera was suddenly "NOT" available as they "ran out this morning".
Funny thing how I mention the sketchy sales tactics and it's all of the sudden not available.
Do not purchase from these scumbags.
Just wanted to warn everyone who thinks about using these scammers.
