Rotten to The Core 'Big Apple'.

Rotten to The Core 'Big Apple'.

I know that this will probably only apply to one camera store, and they all won't be like this.

My dearest best friend went into a camera shop, second or third block down from The New York Sheraton Hotel (same side of the road), to buy me a special surprise present whilst she was on her once in a lifetime trip from the UK to New York, USA with her two best female friends. She asked for a good quality 32Gb SD memory card as a special surprise present, knowing that this would fit my camera.

She is a retired teacher in her late sixties, and doesn't have a clue about digital cameras. They assured her that the Transcend 32Gb was the best they had, a 32Gb 45MB/s (300x) at $250. She haggled them down to $150. These maggots sold her a $24 item for $150. Please be warned that there is one Camera shop in New York that is rotten to the core, and full of parasitic maggots.

She was distraught when I told her she had been conned. God bless her .. You can buy this memory card in the UK (from Amazon.co.uk) for £15 ($24).

I know of NO UK camera store that would rob a pensioner in this way ..
