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:

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 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!
