the way to avoid multiple payment is to not accept payment from more than one person even if several have sent you money. You must claim the money.

Anyway, I am away from home right now(N Idaho maintaining a hydro-electric plant) and have just enough time to check a few things from the hotel computer.

Haven't initiated a dispute via PP yet. Will soon. Thanks for everyone's interest and support. Still expecting the worst. ie: Scam.

Cheers,
Erik

PS- anyone have a bargain K100D they want to sell me? ;-)

Not sure if any of these are a "bargain":

Pentax Cameras - K100D SLR Digital Camera - 19016

In fact, it looks like prices may have increased a bit. Wonder if supply is dwindling?

This guy's (the "seller") posts stuck in my mind, mostly because of his attitude. He once posted a pano that he said was shot from his driveway and gave the street name. I assume that it's still on the forum; might come in handy if you are willing to go to the effort of tracking him down.

Wait a couple of days, and you might be surprised.
Pentax Canada just really dropped the price of the K10, so there's a pretty good chance that the K100 is about to drop as well.
It's worth a short wait.

Kingsofronin, I sure hope that it's an honest mistake, and that you straighten it up quickly.
No one deserves to be ripped off including you.

I agree. I read some of his old posts also noticed that he has a bad attitude. Once of the greatest things about this forum is that everyone for the most part is congenial. I am convinced he was participating in fraudulent activity.

Stu, where have you seen the reductions? And how much are they?

I see Henry's still has the body only for CAN$800.

I'm right across the border (in the Detroit area) and would be happy to make a shopping trip.

TIA!

I do hope this all is a big honest mistake on his part. I shudder at the thought that one of the more active forum members is a scammer. Do keep us all updated.

And a waiters in a Hungarian restaurant in ... Chicago was it?... wherever is easily found. Hungarian restaurants are few and far between, so an easy determination of where and who IMO! (I sure hope he's not of my same ethnic decent...) Of course I'd assume one would only follow the breadcrumbs if you're already in the area, given the utility in comparison to the $$$ lost.

Yeah he was in Chicago. he mentioned that he was shooting once within an hour of Oak Park and I assume that's a suburb of Chicago. I just hope paypal does the right thing for these guys. I had a $350 Ebay purchase go 'south' on me and Paypal refunded even the shipping. Hopefully they will get the same back.
Surprising really to do this sort of thing in a public forum.

I spoke with my dealer on Monday Scott.
It's probably worth it for you to give Henry's a call and ask if their price is dropping as well.
If they say no ask if they'd be willing to give you a short price guarantee.

That's around the same price as I can get it for here after the price reduction. BC seems to charge a little more than back East

Well, I see he logged in today.

I would have thought he would make a post clarifying what happened here.

STAAAAAY far away from this one Jamey. I don't want to cast aspersions but...It would appear that he has money from 2 others and may not have delivered the goods.

A post from earlier this month indicates he has moved to Berea KY and not updated his profile...
