    This is the world of internet. Somebody here is anybody. You don't know me and I don't know you.

    When it come into bussiness in the internet - as a friend at work told me - they actually can be traced though their registration. If they never registered it in the first place than they don't have it.

    But if you sell 2nd hand goods in ebay, people still do buy it - base on trust. Many people have lost their money in the internet transactions, including from a poster here in this forum.

    So, is the cameraaddict dot com a trust worthy?

    man...seriously, how do people live with themselves running a scam like that? There are truly people with no conscience, to be able to swindle people out of their hard-earned money like that. I really hate scammers.

    What I don't understand is how is a "company" like this not investigated and shut down?

    I wonder why better biz bureau or other form of commerce agency does not nail them? All they have to do is buy something from them.

    I basically stick with B&H then Amazon - in that order. I do not even go with Amazon if it's not directly from Amazon because Amazon gives me the "they are responsible, contact us after 10 days, blah blah blah ..." That's why I go with B&H - a couple bucks more, but worth it to know that I do not have to hunt them down or threaten to sue them to get what I ordered :)

    Ok, I was feeling a little mischievous :fangs: and wanted to have a little fun. I thought it would be interesting to send them an email inquiring about their ratings just to see what kind of response they give. Here is the email I sent below, and I will post their answer (when and if I ever receive one, lol)

    Hi,

    I was looking at your products on your site and I was amazed at the low prices. I am currently in the market for a new Canon DSLR.

    Then, I checked your rating on http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Camera_Addict and at first I thought I had read your rating wrong. I thought - "2.6? Wow, that is really bad! I wonder if that's a typo? But then I looked closer, and saw that in fact, it wasn't 2.6 after all- it was POINT-6! Your business has a six month rating of .26 out of 10 and a lifetime rating of .63 out of 10. Your company doesn't even have a full point for a rating. I could be wrong, but that seems like a pretty bad rating. Maybe the photography equipment-selling business has tough customers? Just curious why all the bad reviews and what steps are you taking to improve your service?

    Thanks,

    Marcus
