So last year I purchased my EOS 60D camera on rentsmart, was told it would be $88 a month for 2 years with the option of returning it whenever I wanted at no extra cost and with an option to buy it out after the term of the loan. Seemed allright with me, paying $2000 for a $1200 camera over 2 years was a bit of stretch but I was ok with that.
Well... I called them up today to find a payout figure as I wish to consolidate my debts. Much to my horror they said I am 11 months into my 48 month contract and the total pay out figure was over 3 grand. How can they justify charging over $4000 for a $1200 camera? Is there some one I can call to help me sort this bullshit?
I am going back into the shop when I can and see if I can get a copy of the contract I signed and reread it as I have lost my paperwork after moving a lot of shit around our house, just to see what the paper work actually says. Any chance of the fair trade ombudsman being able to help me seeing as I was completely misinformed by the salesman?.
