    Places Not To Buy From Scams

    The seller was P.V.G. Yeah, part of the deal was just my stupidity. I thought he was a nice guy, so i trusted him. (i still think your a good guy though Ivan) But things got "messed up" on a vx1k "package" and im pissed. for 1900$ (incl. shipping) heres what i ordered and expected to come in the mail: - Vx - with all the "in-box" goods. - 4-5 NPF 730's. - Canon zr10 w/ 9hr batt +charger for capture &playback - Lowepro Phototrekker - Some Kenko WIDE-ANGLE - he told me shipping would cost 152$, we later found out it would only be half of that, so he said he'd put the extra cash into the backpack. for 1900$, here is what i recieved: - JUST a vx - one CRACKED npf730 - the zr10 and the battery - the phototrekker - Some Kenko TELEPHOTO!??! - a Connect Four game set..... yeeeaahhhh - a fat customs fee It was totally unusable once i got it.. What am i supposed to do without chargers?? I had to go out and buy all new accessories.. Living on the other side of the globe doesnt help much either.. Buying accessories is 10times as expensive then it should be. All i want to say is i was let down. I suffered a big loss as far as my own wallet goes. I just think others should make sure they deal more professionally with over the net buyers/sellers. Write out documents, send invoices, and get all the damn photos you can from the seller! Dont get jipped! Just because a deal sounds nice, doesnt mean it is. So just be aware.. I am aware that there are people who have dealt with PVG successfully. And I believe that. However, our deal just got messed up, i thought i was being serious enough about everything... well, obviously not. So i gotta blame myself for not making sure. Think twice people. He's prolly using the batts i ordered with his current vx... that bastard

(i still think your a good guy though Ivan) But shit got fucked up on a vx1k "package" and im pissed. for 1900$ (incl. shipping) heres what i ordered and expected to come in the mail: - Vx - with all the "in-box" goods. - 4-5 NPF 730's. - Canon zr10 w/ 9hr batt +charger for capture &playback - Lowepro Phototrekker - Some Kenko WIDE-ANGLE - he told me shipping would cost 152$, we later found out it would only be half of that, so he said he'd put the extra cash into the backpack. for 1900$, here is what i recieved: - JUST a vx - one CRACKED npf730 - the zr10 and the battery - the phototrekker - Some Kenko TELEPHOTO!??! - a Connect Four game set..... yeeeaahhhh - a fat customs fee It was totally unusable once i got it..

    this looks useful..thanks Jenkins im just going to take some disposable cameras with me.. only going to 4-5 days with 2 friends.. my friend is considering taking a small minidv camera.. it would suck to loose stuff. but i understand about being smart with your shit.. ive travelled alot. barca just sounds pretty different. going on the 13th, staying for 4-5 days.. short, but sure to be sweet.
