WE GOT TRICKED



Spent Wednesday with this lovely lady. In addition to enjoying of her company I got to try out my new camera (YES, I GOT THE CANON EOS 7D I WAS TELLING YOU ABOUT BEFORE! FINALLY!). And I seriously couldn't ask for a better model, she's such a beauty! Now, I just have to tell you what we went through to get this camera. Last week dad was browsing the Internet and found this site called Yorkshire Cameras through ebay. They had the 7D at a too-good-to-be-true price so we decided to order it. However, the day after we received an urgent phone call from my uncle, who told us this was an Internet fraud company. This was followed by several phone calls to the bank as dad was seeing if there was any possibility to get our money back. They told us the chances were minimal and that all we could to do now was wait and see. We were really lucky in the end, and got our 1600 euros returned. The incredibly low prices themselves should've rang our warning bells. A quick google search would've confirmed that it's a scam website. It's a very believable one, though, so beware! After this fiasco we bought the camera plus a bunch of gear for 2700 euros from a reliable place. What have we learned? Before buying anything online make sure it's a reliable site, and NEVER rush into buying stuff!
