    Selling a 600mm VR for $7900

    Sent them an email and got this reply:

    "Your wholesale prices are attached. All items are new in boxes with US warranties. We are based out of Detroit, MI. but we have warehouses all over the U.S. We are an authorized seller of the entire Canon, Nikon, Sigma and Tamron product lines, including cameras. We wholesale to the public. Our company is DIREC2U ELECTRONICS. I can send you a wholesale pricelist of these items if you like. As for payment, we have our corporate website where you can securely pay and receive your receipt and tracking information. We accept payment by phone, internet, and fax for our corporate customers. Also, my direct line is Toll Free 877-828-0102 ext. 710. My name is James Stephens. I would be happy to help you. "

    Thanks,
    Gary

    I wonder if contacting nikon directly, and asking them if said company is actually an authorized seller, would produce any good results.

    They aren't in resellerratings.com and there's the old saying if it sounds too good to be true....

    The real owner of the website is hidden.
    IMO, This has all the earmarks of a scam company.

    The parent company,J.L. International Inc, appears only in two trade listings but has no web site.
     
  6. Chances are that even if they were legitimate, they won't be able to deliver you a 600mm at the moment, since they are on very limited availability. At the most they will take your order and make you wait.

    And we all know that if something is on limited availability, it is very unlikely that those who do have the unit to sell would be selling it at such a reduced price :biggrin:
     
  7. Yeah, it's JL Electronics and their one review in Reseller Ratings isn't very nice. That's an unbelievable price for that lens.
     
  8. I would not buy here, that's my advice. If you did, I would use the American Express card

    Even if the price is decent, for that much money I wouldn't take the risk.
