I've also spotted some great prices on the Oregs website so I sent them an enquiry asking about their prices. Their reply was "Everything that we sell is brand new and comes with manufacturer warranty. You will get the camera factory sealed with the standard package and everything it comes with included : cables ,manuals...The reasons for our low prices are :-no taxes are added to your prices-a temporary promotion made by our dropshipper
It would be unusual for a spoof website to offer a phone number, address and a shop location but then I'm still concerned that their offer prices are too good to be true. What's the position in the USA if a customer pays by credit card for goods that either don't arrive or aren't as described/expected when they do arrive?
merchantcircle.com has some brief customer reviews for Oregs but I still can't decide whether or not to go ahead with an order.
The onld saying "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is" comes to mind here...
Generally CC companies will have their own rules about how to go about an issue of mis-represented goods. I'd check with your company to see what protection they offer.
Working at a camera shop, I can tell you horror storey after horror story about deals that were so good, but didn't quite pan out for the customer. Every so often, though, I see one deal that goes the right way. The other thing that I have learned from working at this store is that no one makes money on hardware; all the internet retailers are close enough in price that it almost doesn't matter. If you see someone that has it that much noticeably less expensive, be weary.
