Hai Everybody
Found this deal in the internet, i know the prize is too low to be true
But i send them a mail that i am interested in this deal
Got a reply as usual, they told me that the product is ready for shipment after i made the payment, as expected
So far, its really going like a cheating game.
The store is located at England and i am from India
I informed them that I will arrange a local pick up, I was aware that the communication will stop at that moment
But, I was surpized asthey welcomed me and gave their addess to me

first idea, and probably anyone else's, SCAM. There is no way they can deliver a new D300 (not even "s"?) + 18-200VR (2nd generation?) for 350 USD. As they are located in England, why do they use price in Dollars?

its dam true

But i am wondering bcz, they r willing to sell it directly
They welcomed me when i told them that i will arrange a local pick-up and pay them directly
and was happy to give me their store adress as i mentioned
They used to ship world widw and thats why they are showing the prize in usd( in their words)

Do we have any member from these area????
(I dont even mind even its a used one- i know for that even we need to pay atleast the four times than they offered)

Dont touch it.

It is obviously a scam.

You will never see your money or the camera again.

This is allegedly their store:

Google didnt reveal a website, couldnt find an eBay store.

Screams SCAM!

Hi renjith,

May I offer you a warm welcome to the CameraLabs forum.

Keep your money! The domain for the company may still be active but the page currently shows a "Web hosting expired" message. Even worse, when I look at a Google cached version of the site there is no mention of Nikon products at all. I've no idea what is going on but maybe the site was hijacked, and that's my most charitable interpretation!

Google Maps also shows the same "store-front" as Jeremy offered - here's a slightly different view - link. :roll:

As always, if a price is too good to be true then it ain't true. It wouldn't have helped in this case as there is no entry but the Reseller Ratings site can be a useful resource in addition to more intensive surfing such as DNS look-ups etc.

Bob.

P.S. BTW, do check your computer for viruses etc. I'm a suspicious old so and so but given the discrepancy between what I saw on the cached site and what you are obviously seeing you can't be too careful.
