TheDigitalNerd - J & J DIGITAL SOLUTIONS Bait & switch/forced upsale overpriced add-ons. Confirmed on phone in stock. Out of stock when I declined extras. ripoff Wyandotte Michigan
*UPDATE Employee: Perhaps mistaken company identity
Praised the item I was buying, how much I was going to enjoy it, etc. Then the sales pitches I am all too familiar with from my regular travels into NYC started.
Told camera only comes with a sample memory card - told him politely this wasn't my first camera and I already have sufficient memory cards.
Then proceeds to inform me that the battery is only a sample one, "only will get you 20 minutes of run time. You have to purchase a larger battery from us to use the camera." Again I informed him that this is not the first Canon camera I have purchased, the contents of the box are fine. There is no such thing as a sample battery.
It was at this point that I was told not to be rude and that we were done with the order. I asked flat out whether they were going to sell me the item I placed an order for and he assured me that he was and that in the future I shouldn't be so rude and goodbye.
I once again confirmed with him that they had stock of the item and would be shipping the item I ordered. Again I was told yes and not to be rude about it.
5 minutes later I get this message:
We thank you for your order and appreciate you shopping with us .
Due to the product you ordered being out of stock for 6-8 weeks from today's date. We have cancelled the order . when or if we get the product again in stock soon will send you an email to place an order please do not resubmit your order again . sorry again and thanks for your understanding
Guess they flat out lie to you and will cancel your order if their pressure sales of overpriced add-ons do not work on you.
Avoid this comapny at all costs.
