Purchaser Beware: Amazon Warehouse Offers
Dec 17, 2014
I ordered a used RX100 III from Amazon Warehouse Offers with the next description:
Situation: Used – Very Good – Merchandise is in unique packaging, however packaging will come broken. Merchandise has no beauty imperfections. Merchandise has been examined and is absolutely practical. All equipment are current and undamaged.
That is what I obtained right now:
Up to now so good. Field appears fairly intact. All equipment are inside.
Then I take out the digital camera, and that is what I discover:
A lot for “no beauty imperfections”
Discover the make
Discover the make. That is proper, it is a RX100 mk1 with a RX100 mk3 tag. Apparently whoever purchased this new saved the RX100 III, hooked up the mk3 tag to their outdated, banged up RX100 and returned it as if it was the brand new one.
A lot for “Amazon Inspected” too.
Fortunately, Amazon CS was nice. They instantly apologized and despatched a return label. I am heading out to drop off at UPS proper now.
Only a phrase of warning to anybody contemplating shopping for from Amazon’s used dept. Not saying that it is all dangerous, I am positive there are good experiences on the market. I simply did not count on this from a supposedly Amazon inspected merchandise.
