Warning – Royal Camera has reinvented itself

Now that Royal Camera of 342 Kings Highway, Brooklyn, NY 11223 is getting pounded for their bait and switch tactics and grey market cameras, they have reinvented themselves!

They now run ads as CCI Camera City of 342 Kings Highway, Brooklyn, NY 11223. Click on the image below and read the sign in the window!

Consumers have already caught on to the new name and you will find the same dreary scams listed for CCI Camera and CCI Camera City as you will for Royal Camera.


They run ads for cameras at unbelievable prices. After they have charged your credit card, someone will call and try to sell you batteries and lenses for your camera. They will even try to sell you accessories that come standard with the camera! These accessories have extremely high price tags and the final price will be higher than in your local camera store.

Before you order from them, Google "CCI Camera scams", "Royal Camera scams". You will see hundreds of complaints if you look long enough.

    Thank you for posting this information in your blog. Though these people are scum bags I am even more upset to find out that Americans are punished and have to pay higher prices than the rest of the world. That is unfair and makes me want to keep all of my money in my pocket. We are the largest consumers and are taken advantage of by greedy stores and manufacturers alike. So it’s really 6 of one and a half dozen of the other.

    I went thru ShoppingCartUSA.com and found the lowest price on a canon digital at Royal Camera. Royal had a four star customer satisfaction rating. When I placed the order I was instructed to call to verify the order and that is when the fun began. I was told the camera had no memory but a could buy a 2 gig for over a $1,000. I realized by the hard sell and all the add ons it was a rip-off so I said cancel the order. They said there would be a 30% cancelation fee, or $85+. They said of course 10% of that fee would go to charity. I said try to bill me and I will take care of it thru my credit card company. He said he would mail me a bill. It is amazing that people in this world have to become bottom feeders to make money. I pity anyone who gets caught in their con. I almost did.
