On Dec. 13,2011 my husband and I entered the Camera Expo at 8145 Vineland Ave, Orlando, Florida. We were trying to find our grandchildren christmas presents.  We were look for a docking station for an ipod with a radio and alarm clock. 

 The employee attempted to sell us several which we said were too expensive.  We settled on the Idream by sony but the price was over $100 and too expensive.  Were told that if we would order 4 he would let us have them for $70.00 the following Fri.  We decided to check other places. 

 I then asked if they had wireless head phones and they told me the MDR-IF240RK sony model was the best.  It cost 199.99 and said they would give me $50.00 off.  They indicated it was the newest model.  I paid $159.74.

Later at Best buy I found the same docking station for my grandchildren for $40.00 each. Saved $160.00 by not purchasing them from Camera Expo!! 

After arriving back at the resort I checked the model number for the wireless headphones I bought and found it for $50.00 on the computer.   Lost $100.00 and my faith in expecting to be told the truth by all salesmen no matter their creed or color....

My loss...A few days later I returned to Camera Expo and asked for an exchange and they would not comply, even though I had been lied too.  Sony has refused to help also.  We are stuck with the head phones we were tricked into buying....

The problem is folks like you shop at a clip joint like that, despite the fact that they're rated a D+ with the BBB, which is pretty lousy, and have a number of complaints on them here.

They probably couldn't care less that you posted here. They count on careless walk-in traffic and tourists that buy on impulse instead of doing due diligence and researching stores and prices first.
