Me and my wife went looking for a digital camera so we go to this place to look around, the guy asks us what kind were looking for. We said one that can zoom close ups and takes quality pics. So he shows us a panasonic dmc-fz28. opened it up took some pictures and samples and it was nice, something we were interseted in. He says 750, we say too much then he says 650 with a case, and i said its ok. Then he busts out a ad showing the same camera on sale for 1100 then says 500 with case and throws in a 4g memory.
Now to us that sounded good, i know we should have done our homework and shop more, but after showing us an ad that it retailsfor 1100 and goes down to 500 it sounded like a bargain. So we take it 540total.Then he busts out this lens that blocks sunrays and showed us another ad saying its 200dollars, but hell give it for 180, we say no and that you already charged our card with taxes, he says ok 150 no tax, then i say its ok, then he says 129 and ill up the memory to 8gigs, my wife says it sounds good and takes it.Walk out paying 670. or i should say trying to walk out, they actually tried to sell us a video camera,
i tell him dont waste your time, he still insisted, then still trying to walk out tried to sell us accessories and super lenses to add on,we say no thanks and run out. Next day go online and search for the same model, its selling for 300-350! retail is 399max, memory is about 30 and a case if probly about 20, i didnt bother checking how much that lens really costs, but im sure its lower than we paid.
So i dont know what ad he was acutally showing us or if it was fake, but he wasnt honest. I know part of it is our fault for not looking around, but if your gonna lie and show us a fake ad saying it retailes for 1100 then your ripping us off.
We learned our lesson, but just to warn everyone dont let these guys con you into buying something. They will throw things at you to buy it no matter what.
