BEWARE OF THESE STORES!!!

I was trying to get a Nikon D40, and all the following sites had very convenient prices:

http://www.bestpricecameras.com
http://www.usaphotonation.com
http://www.ccicameracity.com
http://www.wisetronics.com


the thing is they are selling the camera kits without everyting on it but they don't say that in their websites.... I ordered or trying to order from them and they called me to confirm my order and said that the kit I choose doesn't have the battery and the charger and they can sell them to me at "special price", like the double of the market. And when you try to buy only that kit (camera and lens only) they just hung up or tell you that the D40 is backordered.

I know they want to compensate the low price of the camera with the accesories, but why the put someting in a website if they don't have the intention of sell it.

As per Nikon website the Nikon D40 Kit, has everyting you need but the memory card, because is an entry level DSLR. So I can imagine that the accesories these stores they are putting on the camera are not the best quality in order to have more profit.

I was just trying to save a few bucks, but honestly I lean my lesson with this scammers.
In PCworld.com forums there are many people who have been deceived by some of these stores, and actually are in litigations to get their money back.
I cancel my credit card to avoid problems in the future.
Please always check http://www.resellerratings.com before you buy anything from a store you don't recognize, you just simply put the name of the store and they give you ratings and comments from actual customers, and if you put one of the above, you'll get surprised.
Again, PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH THESE SITES!!!!!!!!!
