I ordered a Mamiya RB PRO S in EX++ condition from BCE that was supposed to be in perfect mechanical condition.
What I rcvd was a camera with foam rot and a broken mirror, not to mention a big dent in the front of the camera and
material coming un-glued inside the mirror box. When calling them on the phone, they were quite courtious and told me to ship the
camera to them and they would fix it or send another. They sent a different camera, one which looked better
cosmetically but had worn out bellows rails that made the lens take a big flop towards the ground when extended past half way
when focusing (not good for focusing when the lens is not parallel to the film plane). I called BCE, they told me that I had 'bad luck'.
I believed that it was more t=like they had bad worn out camera equipment. I called my VISA company and disputed the charge, (sending the camera back again,
costing me $60.00 in shipping so far). Then I get a call from BCE when they recieve the camera, the BCE saleman yelling at me for sending the camera back and disputing the charge.
Apparently he didn't like the '3 weeks of paperwork' that he would be pushing through this process, and he let me know how displeased he was.
I get two bad camera's, and he's yelling at me for protecting my rights as a consumer? I have a msg for all of the New York based camera outfits that insist on doing
'bad business', the internet is here and we can voice our disapproval and let millions of people know not to do business with you.
DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE PEOPLE, THEY ARE CROOKS! THEY HAVE BAD ATTITUDES! THEY SELL DEFECTIVE MERCHANDISE! THEY HARASS THERE CUSTOMERS!
THEY DO BAD BUSINESS! DON"T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!
