I'm hoping someone in the area could tell me if Blowout Cameras which lists itself as being at 2085 West 6th Street Brooklyn, NY 11223 is a legitimate business. They may just be having trouble with their website and phones, but I placed an order online with them on Friday and 1) the charge has not shown up on my card yet, and this is Tuesday, 2) they haven't responded to eMail sent from their website, 3) they haven't responded to voice mail left at their 800 number. I looked for a VT member living in the area as my own Brooklyn friend is away on a cruise, but didn't see anyone in the area who showed up logged line this year.
I'm going on a land/sea trip to Asia for about a month next week and was trying to get this camera in hand for the trip, but now I'm also worried about my financial info being out there when I'm not quite as able to monitor it. Thanks. I'd appreciate anything anyone can find -- maybe someone could try a drive-by (I believe it is just off Avenue U per GoogleMaps.)
Today, I read "They don't answer their phone, and in an attempt to avoid contact, they have not registered their correct contact information with their domain name registrar. Also, they just opened a new site blowoutcameras.com which is a clone of megacameras.com." on epinions.com (couldn't find anything about them when I made the order), so I'm getting quite concerned. Thanks again.
