No_cameras

I wrote an article recently about Royal Camera’s bait and switch tactics. Since then, I have been getting constant hits from Google with Royal Camera as the search words.

UPDATE: Add CCI Camera City
Inc., 342 Kings Highway, Brooklyn, NY 11223 to your list of online
camera shops to avoid. CCI has the same address as Royal Camera!


If you Google "CCI Camera City problems", you will find the same list
of bait and switch complaints and grey market product complaints that
Royal Camera is known for.

Out of curiosity, I Googled Royal Camera again to see where my comments were ranked. This is a complete change from several weeks ago when sites praising Royal Camera dominated the search results.

Would you buy from Royal Camera, if this came up on your search? Would you want to work for Royal Camera if you saw these results on your search?  (added emphasis is mine)
