Is actionsportcam.com a genuine seller?

The website actionsportcam.com is selling the hero 7 black at 239 USD... It sounds too good to be true, so is it?

Hi @sonytony @stoutriver60235

 

We regret to inform you that this is not a legitimate website.

This has been raised to the team in charge.

It's always best to purchase from the official webstore: https://shop.gopro.com/cameras

 

Thanks!
Ej

I am not sure. But I went ahead and purchased it. I figured if it's not correct I purchased using Paypal and they will refund me if I don't get it or if it is not as advertised.

Must be Go Pro's competition. Most buyers will buy from them for Black Friday Event.

They will get the money back from Paypal but will miss the sales event and won't bother buying the real GoPro becaused of missed sale.

Re: Is actionsportcam.com a genuine seller?

It is a SCAM, I purchased one from that website, before that I contacted the GoPro support and was told it was a Legitimate reseller, then come to find out later that all they did was use the Scam Advisor tool they didn't cross check it with their records or anything like that. So now I am out a camera or Money which they won't do anything about. I just want the camera I purchased I don't think that's too much to ask. Due to being unemployed I have had to resort to a GoFundMe page....

Lol your link says scammed by GoPro, which is not the case. In the screenshots you can see they advised you that they do not have a list but ran it through a scam list, it was not pickek up there. That did not imply anything, just that the site was not reported as a scam yet.

 

Also you did not include the chat messages that first occured, i wonder why you left hem out.

Probably they sell products at a good to be true price. i mean half the price of a original?! you were sceptical as well from the get go.

 

Also you did not pay via your credit card or paypal? that is quite interesting because you did not fully trust it from the get go hence your question to go pro. I hope you get a GoPro soon though, i have been scammed in my life as well and it really sucks :(
