PLEASE READ ON...DO NOT BUY FROM www.best-dslr-deals.com

I tried to use this website last week to buy a Canon 7d camera.

I put in my FULL account details for Amex, and it said it didn't recognise the first four digits.
OK, I thought...not everyone takes American Express.
It asked me for an alternative, so I put in my FULL Visa details, just to get the same message.
Only, at that stage, did alarm bells ring!!

I have just received a phone call from American Express Fraud office to ask me about bogus transactions on my card.
Luckily Amex did not honor them, as they seemed dodgy.

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE - AS IT IS DEFINATELY A SCAM.

Many thanks for the warning, and your experience only underlines the problems encountered when buying online. Personally I only buy from the long established companies who advertise in each issue of the WDC Magazine, people like Park Cameras and Warehouse Express are those who I've dealt with and always received first class service. There's an old addage which goes like this: if something seems too good to be true, then it usually is!. Be very wary, and only use the trusted companies who have been doing business for many decades and are well known. All the best, Mike.
