Has anyone ever purchased anything from them?
This seems way too good to be true...

Multiple reports of bait and switch ^ Even if it's a grey market, it's still too good of a price. Buyers beware.

The lowest market price for a brand new import and split kit EOS 6D body (WG version -- with Wifi and GPS) is approximately $1349 from a reputable unauthorized dealer, which you'll see every few months during an eBay frenzy event. These are large reputable unauthorized dealers who import hundreds (if not thousands) of bodies and can squeeze their suppliers for the lowest possible price. It would be very difficult for anyone else to sell for lower than this.

Anything significantly lower than this should raise red flags and warning bells. (This is not to say that anyone pricing it above $1349 is reputable -- there are quite a few scam sites that are "appropriately priced".)

Take a look at their Google Maps storefront for their listed address... would you trust walking into whatever building that is and giving them your $1,095 hard earned cash? Save yourself the 99% certain headache and just resist the urge to place an order...

That could be the back of the store? Shrugs

In your experience, how many times has Google Maps shown the back of a street address. In my experience, never.

Perhaps this specific instance is one of the few exceptions?

It's a great price and I would jump all over this but it's not going to happen. Why go through the hassle of an all but guaranteed chargeback?

Maybe they do not want people to do window shopping :).

As already mentioned, it is too good to be true. I would NOT do it.

run, RUN, RUN away from this deal. I nearly fell for a similar offer recently only to find out it was a total scam.

They pay to be a "merchant member" which means their rating of 7.03 can't be trusted. My goodness, the third review is someone who got bait-and-switched, payed "way over budget" but still gave the a 4 star rating? Oh, and read some of the actual reviews starting on page 2. Proceed with extreme caution.
