Beware the scammers

One of the great things about the internet is that it has changed our way of shopping and bargains can be had without the hassle of traipsing around shops, The down side is that there are plenty of scammers out there looking to cheat you out of your hard earned cash, I fell prey to this just before my trip to Japan when i ordered a coat for the trip, Luckily i acted very quickly by informing the bank and credit card company and after i had sent it back to the bastards in China the bank informed me that it had been dealt with, A couple of years ago it came to light that there were fake Sandisk CF cards hitting the market, They worked ok but were not made by Sandisk and the differences were subtle, Yesterday i saw that the scammers had upped their game and were selling look alike Nikon products, This is very worrying that they are getting to a stage where its difficult to tell the real thing from fakes, Take a look here
It almost makes you by at your local store, All i would say is only buy from reputable dealers if you buy online and be careful out there
