It's a scam. Absolutely.*Nobody in their right mind would sell a D200 or an 18-200 for those prices...right now, you could charge OVER retail price, and people would buy them.*I wouldn't even consider giving them my money...I'd never see it again.*

Scam! Run as fast as you can from this outfit. Nobody sells a D-50 with 18-55mm kit lens for 320.00 US. No way...

On the other hand, they seem to have a physical address, maybe you could visit them:-)

They are not even listed by Reseller Ratings, so there's a red flag.

To paraphrase an old saying...If it sounds too good to be true, it IS..

Good luck

Robert

Can anyone confirm their physical locations in USA or UK. If they are selling D50 for $304 that is insanely attractive offer.

I can confirm that the London address is the address of The Lord John Russell Pub: 91, Marchmont St, London, WC1N 1AG

http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs...Russell_Square

Need I say more?

OK, UK address (a public house) but no prices in pounds, no phone number, domain registered to [email protected] which has no web site but is hosted in Australia. Maybe they are trying to hide their true identity?

Oh, and the fax number doesn't work - who knows where that is supposed to route to.

Sorry, I couldn't resist digging further - you could have bought the the US address for $155,500 but apparently it has just been sold:

I've just bought a D200 for £740 from a firm called Digital Rev, based in Hong Kong. Got it whilst on a business trip there. I've used this firm before and find them excellent value with good service.
