List of sites NOT to buy from

Hey guys,
I've been searching around and have found a sadly long list of photo/video/electronics scammers who constantly upsell, mis-ship, mislead and all-in-all break the law. Obviously B&H Photo as well as the other sponsors of DVInfo should have everything you need and are definately trustworthy, but for all the bargain-hunters who get lured by the low prices, Please DO NOT buy from the below websites!


List removed by moderator. Ben, we appreciate the vote of confidence in our sponsors, but I'm not sure that DVinfo wants to get into this sort of thing. For the time being I'm closing this thread until Chris can weigh in on the topic. Thanks for your understanding.

Ben's list was a good one, but it opens up a can of worms with regard to liability. Some of those bait-and-switch box houses have been known to go after people with litigation. I'd rather not run that risk. Suffice it to say that we've already done the legwork and have found the best, most reputable dealers already:

Rather than recommend where *not* to buy, we would prefer to recommend good outfits... thus, the Sponsor list. Thanks for understanding,
