All together now ...

IF IT SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS.

... and to follow up, the WHOIS data for razzphoto.com shows that the domain name was created 10-aug-2007, and that the contact info for razzphoto.com is the same as the domain registrar's, in Vancover, WA. And SuperPages.com never heard of Razz Photo, in Vancover, or anywhere else.

Andhttp://www.resellerratings.com/store/RazzPhotohas no Customer Satisfaction Ratings. No Good Ratings. No Bad Ratings. Nothing. Zero. Ziltch. Zip.

Do you want to be the first? :-)

I got bit a little by one of the Brroklyn camera dealers (redtagsavings, digital delivered) and wound up with a grey market 7D (it was in a plain brown box instead of the box that has a photo of a 7D on it) and I stay clear from those Brooklyn shylocks now.



I got my A700 for $1315 from pcnation.com and it arrived as expected, and I did not have to fight, kick, and scream to try to figure out where the camera came from. The lies these guys tell about the camera battery only lasting 30 minutes (but they sell you the 4 hours battery for $100..... and it turns out to be the standard battery) so now I look for the best deal that does not come from the thieves in Brooklyn.



I bet that camera is grey market, and they remove the battery, shoulder strap, battery charger, etc and sell them to you at a high rate... so the camera winds up being more expensive than a US model with the accessories that should be included.



Here is what I found when I was looking to buy an A700 and I found that Razzphoto website. First thing I noticed is that there is no address for the company. A little research found this:

Here is a warning to anyone thinking of giving them a credit card number:

They have a whopping 0.23% satisfaction rating.
