    Question too good to be true?

    Hi not sure whether this is the correct section to post this

    Wanting to ask whether the website http://camstores.webs.com/ is a reputable website?

    They have quoted me a BRAND NEW 60D Body for only $800. Inclusive of free shipping and 2 years LOCAL canon warranty.

    Thanks for your feedback

    If it is too good to be true, it probably is.

    Classic scam.

    I mean think about it, running a business off a free web site?

    Prices that are ridiculously low?

    The same typical UK-based address/phone number as all other Nigerian scammers?

    If in doubt, doubt it.

    If it's western union payment = 99.9% scam (read too many scary stories to believe any payment via Western union)

    the site doesnt seem to contain any payment instructions, and funny it sells a full frame with kit lens.. i mean i never knew people buy full frames with kit lens and i thought kit lenses works only on crop sensors, at least i think the sony ones; saw it at sony.

    bro, as much as i would like to use you as a guinea pig, i strongly advise you to steer clear of that. get from BS if you don't mind second-hand. so far no unpleasant experiences after 4 transactions.

    It's real..IF quoted price are in old Euro xchange rate ...lol...

    easiest way to find out is to contact the person and ask some questions..

    the last time I tried on such offers, I asked about shipping..pleaded with them I really want the item fast...asked them to express ship to Singapore within 3 days. They agreed without additional charge. Some might think they provide great service, I thought otherwise. You try and see how? =)

    For $800 SGD you can't even get a used 60D. Most probably a scam website.

    Such an unprofessional website, and they don't even bother to spell their items correctly (there is no such thing as "len")

    Most likely a scam.
