Aussie Camera Complaints

If you purchase from this company do not expect to get what you see in the attached images or description. You will be very disappointed as I was. If you are after customer service with the Sydney number list on their web site and the same given to me by email it will never be answered just an annoying voice message to ring back later. Then if your frustrations run so high that you consider returning the goods, think again as its an American address with a list of requirement to even start a refund. My advise, find a genuine Australian supplier that you can ring and talk to. Buyer beware…..(Source: ScamAdviser.com)

AussieCamera.com Conceals its True Identity.

Whois shows the registration owner of the domain as simply a domain registration company. It’s not unusual for a website owner to conceal personal data via a domain registration company. However, online retail companies also go out of their way to be transparent and to build trust. AussieCamera does NOT.

No Physical Address.

We have no way of knowing if AussieCamera is actually in Australia. There is no physical address. It’s possible that AussieCamera is really operating out of China.

Whois shows that the domain is registered in Arizona, however the country where AussieCamera is based is hidden. ScamAdviser calculates a 89% probability that the AussieCamera is outside of the US.

Our guess is they are operating out of a country where they are not regulated and where they cannot be prosecuted for online crimes.

A New Website.

As of this writing, AussieCamera.com is less than three months old. It’s a new website. This is a typical tactic among scam websites, particularly around the holidays.

It’s interesting to note that the on the About Page of AussieCamera.com they claim to have been selling cameras and electronics for over 20 years. This can’t be true.

The Last Word on AussieCamera.com.

Don’t do it! If you attempt to buy anything from AussieCamera.com, we believe you will only lose money. If you order a product and IF it arrives, it will NOT be the product you expected OR the quality you expected. If you then attempt to return it you must pay shipping fees PLUS a 20% RESTOCKING fee. See the AussieCamera.com refund policy.

However, if you order from AussieCamera.com you probably won’t receive anything at all.

‘Tis the Season for Scammers.

During the holidays, you will see ads and emails for incredibly low prices. Scammers use ads and emails to drive customers to their websites. Don’t be tempted. If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

The Best Deal of Cameras and Electronics.

If you’re searching for cameras and electronics, buy from Amazon. Suppliers naturally compete on Amazon so you can easily find the lowest price. Also, if you have an issue with the product or the supplier, Amazon will help you sort it out or refund your money.

  1. Dear Sir,

    See below my complaint against the Chinese company:

    ShenZhen BangYan Electronic Technology Co.,Ltd
    Headquarter Office:
    Yameicheng BD,G107,Gongle Community,Xixiang Street,Bao’an District,Shenzhen, China.
    SMT Factory:
    Building C, Hongqiao Industrial Park,Heyi Village of Shajing, Shenzhen City, Guangdong Province, China.
    Sales Dept
    Telephone: 86-755-29067712
    Fax: 86-755-29067792
    Sales/
    Becky Zou
    Website: www.bangyangroup.com
    E-mail: sales@bangyangroup.com

    After negotiations with a representative of the company Becky Zou, we came to an agreement the company to make PCBAs (electronic boards) for me according to my project.
    Becky Zou sent me a pro-form invoice at the price $ 520.74. Please find enclosed the PI
    I made a payment by PayPal on April 24, 2020. Please find enclosed the payment document by PayPal.
    After May 1 2020, Becky Zou stopped answering me.
    All my attempts to connect with somebody from the company were unsuccessful.
    After 40 days, they appeared. They emailed me and asked for more money. These scammers are very cheeky. They must be punished.

    I ask for your assistance to find the company and get my money back.

    This fraudulent Chinese company is destroying China’s commercial image.

    Best Regards

  3. They are a US company and do not reply to emails or phone messages. I received a camera with an NTSC output which makes it useless in Australia. I’m now stuck with it.

    And PayPal were no good either. There was no promise of PAL output in the description. One would assume that the company AussieCamera based in “Sydney” would sell cameras that could be used in Australia, but Paypal seem to differ in opinion.

    1. Hi, Shane,

      Sorry to hear you lost money with AussieCamera.
      Thanks for sharing your experience with them. I’m sure
      you have helped someone avoid these scammers.

      Thanks for stopping by,
      Gary
