I placed an internet order for a Canon PowerShot SD850 IS camera from Techondigital (although all the paperwork that arrived read "The Camera Whiz INC"). I immediately received an email stating that I had to call the toll free number to "confirm my order." Here is the email from sales@TECHONdigital.com:

Your order has been received. Please call us at 877-425-9933 to confirm your order within 24 hours, so we may have your order shipped out to you as soon as possible.Order ID: 1027369Order Date: Tue Apr 08 18:30:47 2008ProductID Quantity Name Price Total 2047B001 1 Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Elph, 8.0 Megapixel, 4x Optical/4x Digital Zoom, Digital Camera $ 165.00 $ 165.00 -

When I called I was high-pressure sold into getting some "high quality" accessories, etc. The final total was $599 and the accessories turned out to be almost completely worthless.

One example is a battery that they sell for $149.99 can be found online for about $12.

Here is the battery they advertise:
Here is what they sent:

Here is the memory they advertise:
I cannot give you a link of the CD Card they did send because I'm convinced the company name on the card "PHS Media" is fake, however here is an itme comparable to the one they sent:

The list goes on.... These people must be put in jail because there is very little difference between their business practices and outright stealing!
