I’ve been trying to buy the Olympus C-3043 digital camera for a week now. I found a good price at “Regency Camera” and decided to buy from them – BIG MISTAKE!

First I had to go through their phone answering system, then I was sent from person to person (a total of 5 people!) which all were very rude. After I told the salesman what I wanted and gave all my information, he told me the item I wanted was out of stock, but there was the same model I could buy that came with a 1 year warranty for an extra $100.00. Well I told him I would take it, gave him my credit card info, got an order number and hung up.

Well, 3 days later there was still no charge on my credit card, so I called. I was passed around to 7 people this time. No one had any clue about my order or the order number. Finally I was told that the camera was backordered for 3 to 4 weeks!

Needless to say I’ll never visit that site again. They’re totally clueless, I don’t see how they stay in business.

The web site itself was OK. It’s just after the order where they get you. Prices are fairly in line with similar sites.
