Update: Today (6/25/09), I received an email from 86th Street Photo & Video stating the following: Your order with our company has been cancelled. Your credit card has not been billed. All your sensitive data were deleted from our system. I'm very upset for all the time I wasted dealing with these crooks. I will file a complain with NY's BBB and will be glad to join any lawsuit against these lowlife crooks.

I went through the exact scam scenario. I placed an order for an Olympus SP-590 digital camera on 6/13/09 for $219.00 (which was a great deal). I received an email on 6/15 with the subject “important information about your order” asking me to call and confirm the order at which time the guy tried to sell me some rechargeable batteries. I declined the offer and told him that I was only interested in the camera and the kit that comes with it. I also told that the camera should come with AA batteries and I don’t have to buy these overly priced rechargeable batteries. He hung up abruptly. When I called back to complain about his attitude, he threatened me with cancelling my order if I argue with him. I received another email on 6/17 telling me that the camera was on backorder. I have dealt with a number of photo companies in New York in the past, but no one as bad and disrespectful as these people. I wish we can do something about this. I wish we can do more to stop this scam than tell each other about it. Is there a “better business bureau” that we can complain to? Does anybody have any idea? Are there any attorneys out there who can advise us on what to do about this? Please let me know.
