Complaint Review: Ajrichies
Ajrichies Scam Internet
I recently purchased a Canon t3i from Ajrichies. They have it for a great price on their website. However, the salesperson Mark called me before shipping it under the pretense of wanting to know if the # next to my street address was an apt number. (Obviously it was as there's nothing else it could be.) He then proceed to give me the biggest used car salesman selling approach to add-on accessories. I kept saying repeatedly I didn't need anything, but it soon became clear to me he wouldn't let me off the phone till I agreed to buy the addditional accessory kit that with tax came to about an additional $80. He informed me the kit would include the extended battery, which he would double in size for me (a $100 value), a $30 uv filter, and a lens cleaning kit.
When this arrived I realized he LIED right to my face (voice.) The battery I received is a super cheap crappy battery that sells for $8 on amazon and does not have any extended battery life over the model that comes with the camera. Also, the UV filter is about $8 online and the lens cleaning kit is probably about $1 because it's totally worthless.
Now, when I called and asked to return the kit, I was told, sure, no problem, only-- I'd have to return the entire box, including the camera, and pay a 15% restocking fee, because they don't accept partial returns. This is total crap. Any store/online retailer on the planet accepts partial returns. It's an obvious scam so I can't make the return becuase the restocking fee would equal more then the cost of the kit.
They then offered me $10 back if I kept my mouth shut, but I decided I'd rather people know the truth about this company.
It's very disappointing because I was hoping to make this my new electronics retailer. However, given their awful business practices, the fact that they don't accept partial returns, and that they lie right to your face makes me never want to do business with them again.
Great price on the camera, just BEWARE THE SCAM. No matter what they try to add on SAY NO."
