I was in New York in November 2010 and i went to Mobilecom to buy a Phone. I selected an Iphone 3gs (Unlocked) having Price 350$ and gave my Travel Card to Merchant at Mobilecom to purchase it. Merchant swiped the card and gave me a receipt of 350$ to sign. I signed the receipt and gave back to the merchant. While merchant was printing the receipts, he said that I will not be able to use the iPhone on any network other then AT&T as it is locked. So I asked the merchant to unlock the iPhone, and he replied that he will charge around 39.99$ for iPhone unlock.I asked the merchant to unlock the iPhone as i was ready to give 39.99$ for update.
Mobilecom updated the phone and gave me a new Transaction receipt of 395.17$. I asked the Mobilecome why you are giving me 395.17$ Transaction receipt. Mobilecome replied that he had adjusted the 350$ Transaction receipt with the new 395.17$ Transaction receipt. I said i will not sign the new receipt. He convinced me by saying that he will need to receipt for cancellation of old receipt and future reference, so i signed the new Transaction receipt ( details given below) of 395.17$ and gave it to merchant.

After getting the Bank Transaction Receipt, the Merchant gave me the Shop Itemized details receipt. I was shocked to see that one one item was there Iphone and they took 684.43$ for that and put 60.74 tax. Even the 39.99$ for software was not mentioned in the Itemized receipt and that made me realize that Merchant committed a defraud with me.I asked the merchant that why he is taking 745.17 instead of 390. The merchant started shouting at me and pushed me against the wall. I was alone so i got scared and came out of Shop without taking my phone. Even i did not signed the Itemized Receipt assuming that the merchant will deposit the money back in my Bank Account.When i cam back in hotel, i found that my account is having only 85 and the merchant took 745.17 from my account.
I reported this case to my Credit Card Bank they wasted 2 months but result was nothing. In response to my case Mobilecom said that I (me) asked them to take the payment in two parts and thats why they gave me two receipts.
I searched on internet and found that Mobilecom are big cheaters and they cheated alot of people.
I also informed the Department of Consumer Affairs nyc.gov/consumers and submitted a Case - dca.2010.11.17.020433 against Mobilecom, but nothing happened.
I found following links on internet that shows the they are big cheaters.
