Expensive lesson


On Oct 25, I bought a camera outfit from Sam's Club in Athens, Georgia.
The idea was to use it to back up the cameras I already own, 2 Nikon D200's. That night I studied the info on the outside of the box and decided it was too different to use it. Controls different, memory cards, batteries to name a couple.
I decided to return the outfit (camera body with 2 lenses, battery, charger and carrying bag) without opening the box.

I returned it Sunday Oct 27, two days later, never opening the box.

The electronics guy came to verify everything was in the package. Well, what do you know, the camera body and one lens were missing.
The box was brought out to me from a locked cage, at least they said it was, I never saw the cage.

Now, I know I should have opened the box before I left the cashiers desk, but who would have thought the box was nearly empty, it being under lock and key. I will inspect all boxes from now on, regardless of where I buy something.

Sam's club club informed me today that they were not going to credit (refund) my card.

Whoa. I would be very unhappy about something like that. I guess that means staying to go through all of the parts of something each time when buying an item even if sealed up. It could be resealed. Too bad.

I'm sad for your luck and being ripped off.
