TNGdirect.com ok?

Does anyone have any experience with TNGdirect.com? They have the K10D for $605 and I added it to my cart then had second thoughts about them. I haven't been able to find any reviews on them anywhere so far.

Well, I might have posted that question about 5 mins too soon. When searching "tngdirect.com" nothing helpful came up; then I started this thread. After that I searched just "tngdirect" without the .com and found this:

Tngdirect is a scam and fraud


This company who claims to be a wholesale dropshipper, is an absolute fraud! Do not purchase from them at all!!!

Not only sells wrong, defective and used merchandise to my customers, but does it all at once in one sale!

They also are selling the items which they claim to wholesale and dropship for other themselve on ebay under aka savebundlecom! You can look up the whois info on savebundle.com and this is what is display.

Registrant:
Save Bundle

Registered through: GoDaddy.com
Domain Name: SAVEBUNDLE.COM

Domain servers in listed order:
NS1.TNGDIRECTHOST.COM
NS2.TNGDIRECTHOST.COM

For complete domain details go to:
Search the WhoIs database.

Here is their listind on Ebay

http://stores.ebay.com/Save-Bundle

BUYER BEWARE, and be sure to check out my website which exploits Tngdirect poor business practice!


Oh well, not worth the risk.

Interesting, I just checked for them on eBay - 'save-bundle' and 'savebundle' don't exist as seller id's; 'savebundlecom' has no items for sale.

It might be nice to have a group heading on this board called "Shady Sellers".

Maybe. If it is heavily moderated and verified then it can be a good thing, but it typically takes a lot of work to police this kind of forum without it becoming a flame fest (fun at times to watch but not very productive).

That's an interesting site that proves what I have said all along: no matter how much you try, you can't please everyone. I was interested to see the feed back on B&H, a firm I have dealt with for over 20 years. About 3 or 4 listings down was a negative report. Out of curiosity, I read it. Turns out the guy failed to notice his paypal address wasn't correct. When B&H couldn't fix that, he slammed them. In other words his fault, they're to blame.

Still, the site is great to see the feed back. It's pretty evident that is a business has a crap load of bad reports you should steer clear. It's just too bad there's no legal recourse to put these clowns out of business for good.
