Terrible feedback! I can only say that I have had excellent service from Adorama. Buyer beware when offers seem to good to be true!

Wish we could just ban their links from being included on the Marketplace... Wouldn't trust that store any further than I can throw them. And I can't lift a building. haha

Actually - their reviews aren't that bad:

fumfie Reviews - fumfie.com Ratings at ResellerRatings

I have not personally bought anything from them, but I have used stores ranked well on resellerratings.com before and had good luck.

It's funny - Resellerratings, Yahoo, and Epinions all rank them 4 stars or better. Once you read the reviews - you wonder how they ever got 4 stars with so many horror stories. Maybe they were good at one time, but after reading the links you provided, I would never order anything from them.

I looked into fumfie earlier this year and spotted several warning flags. Buy with a credit card so you can dispute if needed

Yes, it's made me wonder how the ratings work too. Very odd.
