I got that kind of treatment from Competitive Camera in NYC in the 70's.
I ordered a Nikon EL2, and they added $60 to the price for a "k screen"
(the only screen that came on that camera) as well as a $40 COD shipping
charge on top of the shipping charge on the bill. So, it was about $140
more than the advertised price.

Adorama has sold me gray market at US prices without a heads up. They
also sold me a DOA Epson printer and refused to take it back. Why? It
was past the return period because they started counting the return
period from the time I ordered it, not received it. And there was a
delay in getting it shipped to me.

I buy from B&H, Robert White (UK), Photo Village, KEH, and Cameraquest,
and that's about it!
