    Loads of scams out there regarding photoequipment. The profit margin on photographic equipment is narrow.... if its too hard to believe.. It is.

    In my experience 90% of the small photo stores in NYC are scams.... the 10% are well known and established boutiques and stores like JR, BH, and Adorama.

    The store linked reports its address here:

    PhotoVideoSuperStore.com
    80 Broad St
    New York NY 10004
    877-262-162

    But a whois search of the domain reports:

    in Discreet
    ATTN: photovideosuperstore.com
    Rua Dr. Brito Camara, n 20, 1
    Funchal, Madeira 9000-039
    PT
    Phone: 1-902-7495331
    Email: 5b8c397f0a141151012048ecfd533755@domaindiscreet.com


    Madeira, Portugal????? Good luck!

    Also check out the registration date:

    Domain Name: photovideosuperstore.com

    It is a good idea to run a search of the store here: Store Ratings & Reviews - ResellerRatings.com - Shop Safe & Avoid Scams Do yourself a favor and read some of the horror stories there so you know how to identify these scams when it appears. In this case, they are so new that there are zero reports.

    For online buying - stick to Adorama or B&H and you'll never have to worry.

    I have also bought safely online from Buydig.com, Amazon.com (when Amazon, Adorama or another reputable retailer is fulfilling the order), CalumentPhoto.com, KEH.com, and others.

    I make most of my photographic supplies and equipment at www.bhphotovideo.com .

    I have experience with B&H and also BuyDig. Both have been first rate to deal with.
    If it looks to good to be true it most definitely is when it comes to internet camera equipment!

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]STAY AWAY from these jokers!!!
    I placed the order for a highly discounted digital camera on Friday. Late Sunday I get an email to call them and confirm the order. I called and had to leave a voice message; and I sent an email reply. They never returned either. So, Monday afternoon I called again. I was asked to confirm my address and item ordered. Then, the sales pitch came for more accessories and extended coverage. I was told that the item should arrive in 7 - 10 days. Late Monday night I received an email from them that the item was backordered for 6 - 8 weeks. I found out on my website account that the item was backordered starting Monday morning; the salesman LIED to me, even after I expressed to him that it was a gift. Sure enough, Tuesday morning I tried three times before finally talking to this salesman, getting lost in their telephone system each time. I explained what had happened, from my perspective, and wanted to know what was going on. He quickly turned the cold shoulder and told me three times that he was transferring me to customer service. Again, I got lost in their phone system. I called his extension once again and he, again, wanted to transfer me, but, I told him to cancel the order. The funniest thing about all this is that in the end he apologized for the inconvenience and wished me happy holidays. I told him "How's that happening since you were going to screw me without the camera?" THIS IS JUST A FRONT (maybe a scam). They don't care about the customer. They never returned any of my voice messages or emails, none. I also noticed that this company no longer comes up in the search engines when shopping online. STAY AWAY.
