BEWARE OF GULF DATA ELECTRONICS OR GULF DATA SYSTEMS Web Site

Forum Members,

Beware of the above mentioned web site. While looking for another K200D I ran across this site that had amazing pricing on Pentax Gear. I started checking into the site to see if it was legit. They are not!!! The security certificates are fake, they won't ship any order less than $500.00. I did some additional checking on the web and it was loaded with warnings to stay away from this site.

I almost pulled the trigger but something was telling that this had to be to good to be true....

Hope no one has gotten taken....

I couldn't even log onto their website - the server's down.
Must have been caught out already...

Yes, further research on the web brings to light that the people behind this site change its name on a regular basis. What caught my eye was the price for dslr bodies and a couple of lenses.
