DO NOT BUY FROM Fumfie, SCAM!!!
I ordered a camera, Nikon D5200, from Fumfie a few weeks ago and received a email that I needed to call Michael to discuss further processing of my order. I called Michael who proceeds to try and sell me a extra battery for $69 and a 32G SD card for $79, both of which are extremely inflated prices. I said no and he tries to sell me a extended warranty that is normally $199 for $99, again I said no. Now he says he can give me the battery, SD card, extended warranty and expedited shipping all for $99. I said no thank you, just send me the camera. Michael said the order would be processed and shipped to me right away. I thought it was odd to get a email and the up sell of items that are cheap knock offs for a over inflated price. I did a search for Fumfie and found a lot and I mean a lot of negative comments. I do see Henry Fumfie respond to some of the negative and say they ship thousands and thousands of orders a month and you are going to have a few slide through the cracks. But what happened next is why Fumfie is a total SCAM and not to be trusted.
After reading the reviews the next morning I checked my credit card that I had charged the camera on and there was not a charge applied yet from Fumfie. I checked my email and there was not a shipping confirmation yet from Fumfie that the order had shipped. I was not feeling comfortable with Fumfie so I called Michael and canceled the order. I simply told Michael I changed my mind and I checked my credit card and nothing had been charged. Michael said that's fine nothing had been processed, a cancellation notice would be sent to my email, that I never received! The next day Bank of America calls me to verify my last two credit card transactions which I did and asked what this was about. BofA informed me there was a charge on my credit card in Brazil at a gas station for $82.38. They asked if the credit card had been stolen or if I had given the information to anyone of which I said yes, Fumfie and explained. This credit card account was only about 60 days old and I had not made any other on line purchases with it. It's ironic my credit card information is used to make a transaction in another country after I had given it to Fumfie!
I have ordered a lot of electronics on line and have never had this happen. Lesson learned is to always use a third party like PayPal and I'm thankful BofA is on top of their security! Should have done more research to find out how trust worthy this company is!
