"Buyherephoto is a SCAM. Don't buy from them. I waited for an order for two weeks. They claim that their American Express terminal was down. Insisted on my giving them another bank card. They low prices are for imports. Very confrontational staff. "
"This place is a SCAM! I ordered a lens and was sent the WRONG lens with no info on an invoice! No emailed invoice either! When I told Logan he made a mistake, he argued with me and even SWORE! he told me there was a 184.99 "restocking" fee and that I had to send that as a MONEY ORDER. If I didn't send the money order with the "returned" lens they would refuse the package!! AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS! I should have checked with online reviews!! He tried to SCAM me!!"
"Horrible company! Never order anything from this company. It might be possible your credit card will be hacked."
"Horrible company. I put in an order way back in Aug. 2011 until today they still have not fulfill the order. I knew the price was too good. I've called them at least 3 times in different occasions to check if they finally have the camera in stock. For every time I called they tell me we should have it in 4 to 6 week. It's been 6 months and I still don't have a camera. Thank god the credit card they have on file is expired."
"This is the biggest RIP OFF COMPANY you could ever imagine. DO NOT CALL THEM. I wanted a $7,800 Canon Camcorder and they bait and switched me with a $4,000 Sony. They Charged me $8,000. Threw in some extras to take care of me but what a rip. Didn't throw in $4,000 worth of extras. DO NOT BUY HERE - DO NOT CALL THEM.THEY WILL BURN YOU. Order from B and H or Cameraworld but not these looser rip off con artists."
"BE CAREFUL!I was about to order my Canon 7D with an advertised price of $939 when apparently this was the international version with plastic body and no charger...They do sell the US model but for $1699! This is a huge price difference which you would not realize until they call you to tell you that you have purchased the international version. They do not provide an address and were not helpful when I suggested they add (international version) in their description. Bad business!"
"I just narrowly espaced being a victim of this horrible company. Thank goodness I caught it in time.I had ordered online from buyherephonto.com a Canon speedlite 430 EX II to replace my OLD OLD OLD 420EX. Their price was amazing...over $100 less than everyone else. I was contacted by phone the next day "to verify my purchase"...I gave the salesman my 3 digit bankcard code, and he immediately began rudely trash-talking my choice of flash. He tried to get me buy a Vivitar unit instead, and had the nerve to tell me that the 430 EX II would NOT work with my EOS xsi (which is BS) becasue of some specification that I had never heard of. I said, "Are you telling me that these 2 canon products are incompatible?" He replied, "well I didnt say THAT...it's just that this other product is the right one for you." I stood my ground and he moved on to another sales topic...Rechargeable batteries...and went on to tell me that if I spend $59 on batteries I can get a free charger. "No thanks...I haven't had much luck with rechargeable batteries." He then proceeded to tell me that standard Duracell and Energizer batteries will harm my flash! I told him that I would be sure to refer to the manual when the unit arrived and go with Canon's manufacturer's reccomendation. He was angry and hung up. 5 days later (today) I see that the bank draft has not gone thru yet. (I have an event to shoot in 3 weeks and need this item to arrive, and I need to try it out prior.) So I tried to call, but they are closed. Something told me to check review sites on this "company"...and when I saw the 100% bad reviews and horror stories, I called my bank immediately. I spoke to the fraud department and read some of the information from the other customers. My bank told me that the safest thing to do was to shut down the bankcard number and order a new ATM card NOW before they have a chance to touch my account. So that's what I did. Looks like I am off to Best Buy with a handful of cash to get what I need.I also checked mellodigital.com, as they had a low price too...same type of reviews there. BEWARE everyone!!!! Bottom line is: Name band stuff is gonna cost namebrand dollars. No way round it."
"DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SITE!!!Site should be called "buy here pigeons.com"Thank God for this site, Reseller Ratings, after discovering we were ripped off, we got our bank involved immediately.We had ordered one of the Nikon Camera kits. Assuming the reviews they post on their website lent credibility, we placed our order over the phone. They never sent an invoice confirming our purchase as promised, just a shipping notice. Once we got their package and found out it was jun, we also discovered our bank card was hit for and extra $1000 dollars. MAJOR BAIT AND SWITCH. CROOKS!Our bank immediately started a fraud investigation and returned our funds. When we tried to get a return authorization... after 5 days... the owner "Joey" was furious as we would not be willing to exchange if for something "better"... BTW, he claims he runs a $500M biz and yet answers customer service complaints? Really?Check it out, they list a Sigma 70-300mm VR lens for $1400. Every other site sells this Chinese knock-off for $200. The scam is when you call to complain about getting the wrong product, they inform you that they "upgraded" the Nikon lens you ordered and then send you a page on their website showing the Sigma at $1400. What they forget is that the internet reveals all other companies sell the same lens for $200. IF you already bought, get ready to talk to "Joey the owner". He will amaze you with his relentless effort to change your mind to return the items. He will threaten, bribe, threaten, intimidate, and finally cuss you out, when you stay firm on getting instructions to return his junk. But GET YOUR BANK INVOLVED FIRST."
"I Wished I Would Of Found This Review Site Before I Ordered From These Scammers, Everything I Have Read On The Peoples Reviews Are True... I Ordered A Lens The 13th Of Dec And Like Everyone Else I Called And It Is Backed Ordered And Then They Try And Sell You Something That Is More Money. The Lens Was Going To Be A Christmas Gift, Now Merry Christmas And Nothing..SO To The People Out There That Want To Order Anything Form (buyherephoto.com.) Never Never Never Buy From This Site... It Should Be Takin Off The Web Forever."
"DO NOT BUY FROM THESE JERKS!!!! My wife ordered a camera on a Sunday and paid with an AMEX. The next day a man called from the site and told her they do not accept AMEX...first of all why would that be an option on the website if your site does not take AMEX??? So my wife gives him our visa card info...he then begins to try to upsell her with a "better" camera package. He started rattling off a bunch of lens specs and other info faster than she could follow. She asked the guy to slow down and he was very rude. She then asked if she could put the order on hold until she could research some of the data he was giving her. He became extremely rude and started actually yelling at her! She told him she wanted to just cancel her order and he said fine but he was still going to charge her a 7% cancellation fee!!!WTF?? We called Visa immediately and had the card cancelled. DO NOT DO BUSINESS with these jackals! I wish we had read these reviews prior to getting involved. BUYER BEWARE"
"I ordered a camera on their website and 3 days later received a message that said, "We are currently processing order number XXXXX for you. In order to complete the processing of your order, we will require some additional information." On my 2nd attempt to phone someone to address the issue I was told that the batch of cameras they received were defective and they had an order pending for another batch."
"OMG!!!!!!! SCAMMERS!!!!!!! DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE! they emailed me to call and confirm my order, when I did the guy Michael did everything in his power to convince me to buy a different camera from the one I originally ordered on the internet. After 23min of hearing him babble about other equipment being a better deal, I asked him to give me a rundown of the equipment included in my video camera package, he then put me on hold and never came back, I hung up, and immediatly called my credit card company to cancel my card! I think he didnt have my original order and wanted to buy some other crap he did have in stock! he was even becoming irritated when I refused to purchase other camera equipment! I dont think they have 1/2 the equipment people order so they rely on their "dirty used car salesmen" techniques to try and wheel people into buying other equipment!!!!"
"DON'T BUY! I ordered a camera at a real good price and after I ordered it they sent me an email saying I needed to call to confirm order. When I called they said the camera did not come with a battery and other stuff and I needed to buy it. I asked them to email the info on all the equipment they say I needed. The salesman would not! He said that he just explained it to me and I didn't need the email! I told him I'm not gonna purchase anything else without info on it! He that said are you arguing with me? And I said I just want the info! I told hm to cancel my order and kiss my ass! I called my credit card co. Right after to make sure the order did not go thru. They post a lot of good deals that they try to up sell on everything! Stay away! Cliff"
"This company is a scam: a Bait & Switch operation. I ordered a Canon EX430ii SpeedLite and charged to AMEX. Got a notice to please call. When I called they said AMEX is not accepted (why does the website allow to select it?). "What do you want to use the EX430ii for? ... No, the advertized $189 is for the version compatible with 35mm film cameras only. For digital cameras it's $289". When I called a 2nd time, same story. Called Canon Product Support: they confirmed that I was lied to. The EX430ii is compatible with diital cameras. Buyherephoto.com: Rude. Arrogant. Dishonest."
"First called, and spoke to Pete. RUDE,RUDE,RUDE. Told me they DO NOT accept "cashiers check for full amount" Called back spoke with Nick.....said they would accept a cashiers check..HMMM!. Wanted to buy a Canon 7D. Was immediately told "we get a lot of returns on that item. Most people can't take 1 good picture, let alone 8 per sec. So, you end up with 8 bad pics. You need a T3i, with a flip screen for video.(sorry, but who asked for his opinion) with our Pro series lens. we can give it to you at wholesale for $1199. The other lens are cheap, and we get a lot of returns on those. The Pro series is the only way to go"!Complete "bait-switch". For those who are even considering....they are scammers, and would recommend you buy elsewhere. I did! B&H...compare the ratings and you'll see why!"
