I am another person that got ripped off. I knew the prices of the camera lenses I wanted and managed to get a good price. But then they started to convince me to buy a different brand adapter (wide angle) that usually cost 1200 (showed me the website and other comments) for 500. I checked everything out online and the company seemed legal) so I went for the deal. Turns out that the whole lens, website and buyer comments are part of a very cunning scam. They basically use 100 dollar lens adapters and re-brand them under top quality. By the time I found out I was already back in the UK. Doooh

I recently visited a shop in 7th ave NYC called Digital Electronics to buy a specific Sony camera which they had at a reasonable price of $299, but was then conned to upgrade to a supposedly better model and was taken in by sales pitch. I paid an extra 200 dollars for the different camera only to find later the new model was only worth $219, so ripped of nearly $300. While there shown a nifty projector which I ended up buying for $799 again only to find it worth $299 online, so nearly 800 dollars wasted. This was during a world trip where I had avoided all the scams in Europe only to be conned by smooth talking Americans, which ruined my week in NY as I felt so foolish. I don't know why these people can be allowed to keep shops after so many complaints .....totally scum of the city, will not shop in NY again

Not thinking and up earlier blah blah.. I had a wonderful breakfast... just after getting out of the 57 & 7th subway...my phone wouldn't stay charged so without thinking I wanted a pocket charger... one that worked.. I have a couple that after the first couple uses... don't do there job pretty much worthless.... I been in and out a couple gifts and luggage places... I noticed that the I love nyc shirts look like they wouldn't survive more then a couple washes.. so decided against purchasing from that chain of stores.. I did however go in with the intention of walking out with a pocket charger because my vacation still has a couple days on it..the shit stick of a human being had me sold on a guarantee best on the market.. phone charger. now in my defense I've heard of the iwalk iPhone ipad blah blah I almost bought one off of Amazon. how ever I couldn't remember the price.. he sold it too me for 96.oo American dollars.. I looked it up because it's no different from all the other I have bought and just haves three blue lights to tell when it's running low on juice.. long story short they sale for 24 bucks and lower... talking about being upset.. I won't be spending anymore money on any gifts at any store.. for the rest of my trip in new York city ^^^Oct 6 2015..>>>sadly you would think the shop would be shooting there own foot.. because there is plenty of good business in the area..

Extremely clever staff at scamming customers. It's been going on for some time who regulates places like this. Only realised by reading forums what a bad place this is and being subject to their scams. Wanted a memory card for camera. Was shown a card asked price not told but I needed the card. Card shown better than original but asked price again ,staff flipped card over with no chance to see price. Thought may be a little more expensive than usual but staff distracted me trying to sell something else. I signed a receipt and was handed what I believed was my copy. Got back to hotel looking for receipt no where to be found. Checked credit card statement really ripped off only receipt I could find was a print OK receipt. Went back to shop no good as I say extremely good con artists you will not realise until after the event. I have all my receipts but this one I had not lost it I was given a bogus receipt. After reading the forums which are terrible nothing good you just never think it will happen to you.

DEFINATELY DO NOT SHOP HERE!!!! What a ripoff! I bought a cell phone charger for $79.99 that could be purchased anywhere else for $14.99. The item was marked $149.99 but when I said I didn't want to pay that much, they marked it down to $79.99. When I got back to my hotel and found that it was $14.99, I was furious!!!! Luckily, my credit card company was able to do a price adjustment for me. I will NEVER shop in one of these stores again.

Buy BEWARE!!!!
