This company has been doing bait and switch orders

The company provides a price for a product and then when you call to have the order realized they attempt to either upsell you to another product or tell you to order again later.

The first attempt I made to contact the company was asked to upgrade the order being the website had stated it was "back ordered" .

This is illegal in brick and mortar stores, and as I know should be for web sales as well.

The responder to the email address above stated that the info on the whois is "***"

Also I know that this is against policy for most registrars to have fake info

The responder also stated the website is actually in Estonia, but from what I see the ip address for the domain is at

host is an alias for has address mail is handled by 0

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I attempted to purchase a camera, they have not processed order – they won’t return phone calls or emails, and I’m wondering if my credit card is compromised. I have done a quick google search and several others had questionable experienced with this site saying its a scam – I’d avoid. I’m checking my statement daily and have emailed and left messages not to process my order – but so far they have not charged my account. Just wanted to submit an initial alert and can follow up with details as anything happens.

Total money lost $3,499.80

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I went to them to buy a digital camera and it did not show within the time specified (and still has not shown). They talked me into several other items that should have already come with the camera (charger, battery, etc.). I have tried to confront them about the purchase, and there is simply no response or I’m given the run-a-round. Looking further into the business, I noticed several other online users having similar, terrible experiences and being scammed and sent faulty equipment. I also looked into their website’s domain registration and it is a very new site… They say they are based in California, but the phone number is from North Carolina and the site is registered in New York and they keep EST time.
