    They are if they don't tell you or they don't realise it until after the sale

    Honestly I highly doubt the caneras were not working but they do not have an obligation to show you. And they may not have wanted to say that - so opted for the broken camera excuse.

    I would provide some feedback - maybe suggest as part of service that any items 'on hold' are shown to the customer before purchase to ensure there is the correct item.

    I would also ensure you do not name and shame as that is a can of worms and you have no proof.

    I'm still interested to know who the retailer was but understand if this is not given.

    I assume its because they no longer own the item.

    If you put a deposit on something can they change the price? Or is that a can of worms?

    Silly question to the poster. But when you held it behind the counter and then went back why didn't you check to see if then where the same items you asked to be held in the first place ? Apologies if this has already been asked and I've not read it properly

    when you put a deposit on something, my understanding is you've bought it at that price. the deposit shows the buyer's intention to make the purchase and they accept the sale price by putting down some consideration (the deposit). it's like an implied agreement or contract...the vendor advertises an item at a certain price and the buyer shows acceptance by putting down the deposit. it would be wrong to change the terms of that implied agreement should the seller change the price.

    I'm assuming because 1)?the Ops kids were being a handful at the time and 2) she never thought the store would do a switch-a-rooney

    See it doesn't make sense to me that this shop would deliberately try to rip off a valued customer. If they deal in more high end jewellery and you buy quality pieces from them fairly regularly I just can't imagine they would attempt to rip you off on purpose. I really feel that this could have been an innocent mistake.

    Correct.

    I'm still in a shock that they will do this.

    I would love to see the footage even someone in a higher authority. But my chances are buckleys.

    I've learnt my lesson now.

    I'll go and get a refund after I get my advice and never shop there again, which is a shame as I buy a lot of gifts from there.
