Thanks for the information.
Good to hear that Visa supported you claim.
I have seen several posts about Eurocam and the 47th Digital Store.
Doing a Google search only turns up two Eurocam sites and neither appear to be associated with a digital camcorder.
I checked the SVP website and do not find a DV 6007 but I do find a DV 8007. There is no mention of Eurocam.
If the camera you bought is anything like the DV 8007, $120 sounds right for a retail price.
A Canon A410 would be a better choice at $99. And it has a 3X optical zoom.
SVP does not make cameras, they import cameras and put their name on them. Their don't appear to do any direct selling.....only selling to dealers.
On the 16th April this year, I went into the 47th Digital store in Times Square NYC to enquire about a Camcorder. The salesman demonstated to me what he claimed to be the latest camera from Panasonic. He stated that the list price was over $1,400 but with Panasonic cashback and dealer discount I could have the camcorder for $1,000 plus taxes. It seemed a good deal so I agreed the purchase. As I was travelling back to the UK later that day the salesman stated that he would put the invoice and Panasonic guarantee in the box. When I arrived home and unpacked the camcorder I was surprised to see that it was a "Eurocan DV6007" made by SVP and could be purchased new on the internet for $120. I sent the package back to 47th Digital and asked for a full refund - the camera was returned to me marked "REFUSED".
I purchased the camcorder using my Capital One Visa card. Under UK law the credit card company is equally liable under "Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act" if there was misrepresentation or breach of contract. As this was clearly the case, I proceeded with my claim to Capital One and have now received a full refund under the terms of the act.
Two lessons to be learned from my experience
(1) NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM 47th. DIGITAL
(2) ALWAYS USE YOUR CREDIT CARD FOR PURCHASES OVER
