"Hi, my local camera store (in Texas) has started to take deposits on the D4 at $500 down."
Their guess for the price is $6000. Availability: "could be by the holidays"
I would be really weary of this. With the credit crisis, this store may be using your “deposit” as financing. It might be a sign they are about to go belly up in which case you lose your deposit as an unsecured creditor in a bankruptcy filing.
I think I would pass on this particular deal as well. Smells fishy.
I am not worried I gave a deposit for the (D what ever) I have prepaid many times before for the next new camera and no problems
What’s a D4?
There’s a Moron born every day and anyone that gives $500 to these scam artists should loose their money!!

They may have started to ask for deposits – has anyone put themselves on the list?
Has to be a scam. A desperate bid by them to not go bankrupt.
