“Looks like from other reviews other people have had the same story.”
“Also everything is really overpriced, they just play with you being jetlagged, not having much time to get around and compare, and not having access to the Internet for easy double-check.”
“can't explain the whole story because it's just too long, but in a nutshell, they are cheaters, and big liars.”
awesome salespeople - THANKS GUYS!!.
The advice these salespeople gave me saved me about $2500
I needed to get 10 iphones for friends of mine and nearly bought them with contract from an AT&T store.
They sold me them for a lot less than AT&T and without a contract.
I came back a month later and bought 2 ipads.
great store great prices.
i dont have too much to say about them. they have superb service and spent a long time with me helping me pick out a netbook.
I just wanted to give them a good review because they really deserved it
beware, they are thieves! Fate attenzione, sono dei ladri.
they will try to cheat you!
I got ripped off too. They sold me a computer lying on its specifics; the computer of course was much worse than the way they described and it costs 3 times less than what I paid (I paid 1089 $ wehn the market price is about 350). When I switched the computer on I discovered what happened but unfortunately I was at the airport! I wasn't able to report them but I am trying to block the transaction through my bank!!!
if you are in new york go immediately to the police and in any case contact your bank if you paid by card!
in breve, mi hanno venduto un computer mentendomi sulle specifiche tecniche dello stesso! Ho pagato 3 volte in piu' dell'effettivo valore del portabile che mi e' stato dato (1089 $ invece che circa 350)! Mi sono accorto della truffa solo quando ero all'aeroporto, quindi non ho avuto la possibilita' di denunciarli! Tuttavia forse potro' riavere i miei soldi attraverso la banca che ha bloccato temporaneamente la transazione!
se siete stati truffati e siete ancora a new york andate subito dalla polizia e se avete pagato con la carta contattate immediatamente la vostra banca!
REPORT THE SCAMMERS!!!!.
Same story as other victims!
PLEASE REPORT THESE DISGUSTING COCROACHES TO NYC DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMABLE AFFAIRS!
quite a big fan of this store. love their selection of rare electronics. I purchased from them many times and recently recommended a friend from PA. He is very glad i did and got a canon 24-70L from them. (now all I need to do is convince him to let me borrow it LOL)
great selection and .. interesting service. I purchased an iphone 4 from them and got a great deal. they happen to be an "interesting" bunch of people but if you shop some of the deals really are good. My iphone 4 was well below any other store in the area which got me nervous but whne i inspected it it was new and works perfectly
What you can do to get your money back.
I was also ripped off in Lafnac. Lost initially about 3000 dollars in electronics which were worth a lot less. It was the same story .. an "inventory", no time to ask for prices in other shops, an atmosphere of hurry and they were "about to close"..
It all started to become clear to me at home when I couldn't fine the promised guarantee receipt anywhere and when I saw the terrible reviews of the place online.
They target tourists who can't do much to get their money back in their home country, so do everything you can while you're still in NY!!!!
I was fortunate enough to find Times Square Alliance who helped me and I got all my money back! Here's my experience:
1. Be in touch with your bank to see if they could stop the transaction.
2. Lafnac won't agree you to return the products or give you the money back, and you can contact Times Square Alliance who can help you! They sent an officer with me to the store to request my money back, and despite being hostile and rude, Lafnac finally agreed.
Here's the contact information:
Times Square Alliance
New York, NY 10036
Phone: (212) 768-1560
Fax: (212) 768-0233
3. If the store doesn't listen to the Times Square Alliance officer, the Alliance directs you to the nearest police station and the police officers will escort you.
4. Remember to file a complaint with NYC Department of Consumer Affairs
5. Also contact Better Business Bureau and file a complaint with them.
6. I also contacted my embassy so that they can warn other tourists and to be able to help them.
I have found complaints about this store dating back to 2002. I can't believe they can still operate, even if it is completely known that they are criminals! Everybody, remember to report them!
I have been robbed !!! These are criminals.
Don't enter this shop !!
I'm so upset from my New York trip that I will do this short.
They priced 899 dollars + tax for macro/wide angle set that costs about 50 dollars on other shops. You can't refund or change items, they get angry and you feel very bad and afraid.
I will discuss this with Master card/and search for a way to stop them.
The rating is far below zero.
Great Service. i was on vacation in NY i saw lafnac digital went in to the store they had the iphone on sale for 599.99 i bought it with no hassel i would definatly recomend them. thank You Lafnac would definaltly come back to your store the next time i am in ny.
They try to steel your money..
The whole crew at the Lafnac Digital Computes Ltd in New York are gangsters.
They try to steel your money.
We visited this shop on our trip to New York.
First they talked friendly to us, asked us about our trip and made good offers, but they told us, that they have to order the products (it was a Panasonic digital Camera and a IPod Nano we asked for).
We went there every day (wasn’t a real problem because we passed this shop close to Grand Central Station every day) and where put off every day to the next day.
On our last day the offered us to get the parts quickly if we would pay a higher price.
So be careful and don’t deal with them, the only thing they want to do is to trick you.
If they make a good offer, try to take it but don’t let you put off to the next day.
And please pay attention to the quality of the product they will give to you.
Because of there very good offer from them at the beginning we missed to negotiate with other vendors in New York.
