Try to go in person to their shop. Check again the terms and conditions. Often the T&C say you have at least 7 days to return your purchase for a refund/exchange.
If that doesn't work, contact fair trade. It's the governmental body that regulate commercial activities and help consumers against cheats/rip offs among other things.
If that doesn't work, you can try to report to the police.

I already report to consumer affair.now just wait the shop sort it out .this is what consumer affairs send me so just wait now cos the that cheating online shopping promise me to solve the problem.


If you have paid for your purchase using a credit card, you may have the option of requesting a charge back for the credit card transaction from your financial institution. A charge back is a mechanism which allows transactions to be reversed in certain specific circumstances. Chargebacks are most often used to reverse financial charges related to unacceptable or fraudulent transactions. When buyers purchase goods or services with a credit card, and the seller does not comply with the terms as described, consumers may request a chargeback through their credit card company. Under chargeback, cardholders can dispute a transaction on their statement and seek to have it reversed by the credit card provider. The card provider then charges the transaction back to the merchant's bank. Your card issuer will be able to provide further details about the chargeback process and the time limits that apply.

If your matter remains unresolved, please feel free to contact CAV for further advice.

If you are able to try some camera in local shop it would be grate. I'm fun of Cannon (600D) with software mode it is good start for DSLR, or if you are Nikon's supporter than try Nikon D3200. Both come with stock18-55 mm lenses ;-) Nikon have larger sensor than canon. Hope I have helped a bit ;-)

That is why it is important to only buy from trusted sellers. Yes, online shopping can be very convenient but it can cause a lot of problems too with fraudulent and dishonest sellers. Read past reviews and feedbacks from previous customers and see if they do indeed sell working goods. I bought a storage hardisk once at a fraction of its price if bought from a physical store, and it works just fine until now. I guess you have to do research first.
