    While surfing youtube and other random sites i notice the google ads displaying ridiculously cheap prices. Are they legit?

    Im in the market for a new/used Canon G9/G10 and Canon Vixia HF10/HF100/HF11

    Cut and paste the name of the outfit into the site below and into Google
    http://www.resellerratings.com/

    Mostly if the price is very low it's a scam. Typically after you place the order they call you back and attempt to up-sell you. telling you the low priced unit is out of stock or whatever. If yu try and cancel they threaten you with a cancellation fee. Most but not allof these guys tend to be in New York. But there are also some very good top tier resellers in NYC.

    Another rule of thumb

    Reseller Ratings is very reliable at revealing scam stores.

    My rule of thumb: don't make any expensive purchases from stores I haven't done business with before.

    If the item's price is far below B&H, Amazon, or other legit sellers, then steer clear.
