The sales person offered to upgrade my camera and showed me one with 60xzoom he used a fake website to show me highly inflated prices and offered me a discount. I agreed to the price.When I gave him my credit card he passed it to his assistant behind the counter who hid it behind a screen and somehow scamed it.He produced a transaction slip at a higher price than aggreed to.When I complained he offered me a tellephoto lens of 2.2x and said it would make the camera a 120x zoom.He showed me the box with 2.2x zoom written on it and a price of $1190 written on it and attached the lens to the camera. He said I could have it for $750. His assistant swiped my card again but it was declined due to bank security. He asked me if I had another card. I showed him my other card for identification but he passed it to his assistant.I told him dont scan that card but he ignored me and kept swipping it. It declined payment. He asked me to go to a money machine and get cash, I refused as I was suspisious at this stage. We were leaving the store and my wife said she would use her credit card.I said No I,m not going to use it.But he took it and his assistant swiped it and charged her $750.We left the store. The next day I tryed the camera and lens. The camera did not function on micro correctly and it would not focus with the telephoto lens.As the instuctions were not in english I was told the included compact disk would give me instructions in english.While at the airport returning home I recieved a text from my bank about suspisious activity on my credit card. After contacting my bank I was informed that further attempts on all three credit cards by on line camera gallery were attempted.I searched on the internet for details about the camera and disscovered the telephoto lens had been swapped at the point of sale for a $29 Wide angle lens.The telephoto lens on ebay $25 the camera $349.95.If you feel the need to be scammed visit on line camera gallery,ink 293 Jefferson street San Francisco for an experiance you will never forget. .
