Be Careful Where You Shop

So yesterday I had the urge to check prices on a new Canon 50D. It’s wishful thinking to be sure, but I the seductive lure of the 50D beckons and I wanted to see just how out of reach it really was. Much to my surprise I found a site listing the camera for $717, an unbelievable price to be sure. So much so it made me a touch suspicious. It was being offered by so I went to Google and typed in the name to see what kind of reviews the site was getting. The first entry stopped me in my tracks:

Beware of Supreme Camera.

From this link you get all sorts of information about this site which basically confirms the price is too good to be true. The site is suspicious, the address is suspect and pretty much everyone agrees it’s a place you should avoid.

By my own research the price was listed at $717 yesterday and now it’s listed as $669. I think that pretty much confirms something odd is going on.

With all of us shopping for bargains we need to keep in mind that if a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is. And just as we need to research a product before purchasing, it’s a good idea to check out a website before you hand over your credit card info.

Looks like I’ll be sticking with the major sites like Amazon and won’t make any forays into untested waters.
