Samy's Camera, Inc.

Samy’s Camera, Inc. Samy Kamienowicz [email protected] [email protected] Fred Silvers Art Lawson Damion Poirier Stolen Property & Underpaid Written Contract Los Angeles California!!. Don’t ever trust Samy Kamienowicz, the owner and founder of Samy’s Camera, or for that matter, anyone who works at Samy’s Camera. I really hate to say this but, Samy Kamienowicz has demonstrated to me that he is nothing more is a cheat, a con-artist and most notably, a thief. Here is my direct experience with Samy Kamienowicz, Samy’s Camera and his corrupt staff. As a life-long photographer and marketing expert I decided it was time sell may camera equipment that I was no longer using which consisted of a lot of photo related gear. I took photos of this gear which included several expensive large and medium format cameras, and made a PDF showing everything, and put it out for bid. B&H Photo & Video, based in New York, reviewed the gear and offered $4,300. for everything shown in the PDF. Samy Kamienowicz, initially offered $3,500., however, through his designated employee, Damion A Porter, notified me in writing , in an email dated October 6, 2019 at 2:32 PM: u201cHi Mr. McFarland, Samy agreed to the $4300 price, please call me back when you get a chance so we can discuss.u201d Damion Poirier Samy’s [email protected] Art Lawson took over from there and backed up the same $4,300 offer. He claimed he was in contact with Samy Kamienowicz himself. That Samy agreed to match the B&H offer of $4,300. On the appointed day, I arrived to turn over my equipment, after renting a U-Hual and filled it to the brim with all kinds of fabulous and expensive gear. Around six people unloaded everything including many extra goodies that I had located after the PDF was circulated for bid. I was told I would receive another bid for this additional property, and if I was not satisfied with that bid, the property would be returned to me.I had no inkling I was driving into a rat-hole of a well-rehersed ‘sting’ operation. Art Lawson promised that new stuff which I photographed, on the fly, using my iPhone, would be kept separate. This property was stolen by Samy Kamienowicz, Samy’s Camera and his corrupt staff of sneaky conspirators. This puts Samy’s Camera in the position of reselling stolen property. Plus, to add insult to injury, after all the gear was inside the Fairfax headquarters Samy Kamienowicz, Samy’s Camera and his corrupt staff did not have a check for me as promised. Next, two of Samy’s security guards approached me, and immediately escorted my out of the parking lot. Yes, I left empty handed. All I got was another promise, which I already had in writing anyway, that the check for $4,300., plus whatever we agreed was the value of the additional gear would be resolved the following day and a check would be cut and in the mail within two days. Finally, after nearly two weeks, I received a check in the amount of $3,500. The lying, thieving Samy Kamienowicz himself wrote on the back of the check: Paid in Full. I wrote my own note under that saying, not true, that this is a partial payment only. I would have sent the check back but Samy Kamienowicz and his crew would not return my calls The additional gear was never discussed as agreed. Currently, I am exploring my options, ranging from a lawsuit, to a police report for theft and failure to purchase, or return of my property, which was effectively stolen at this point, which in this case could potentially rise to the level of a Felony. The sad irony with this example of how unethical Samy Kamienowicz actually is. When I was buying at Samy’s they treated me very well, but once they figured I was no longer a customer I find out how unscrupulous they really are. Stay away from the shyster Samy Kamienowicz and his band of hoodlums at Samy’s Camera. Yes, Samy Kamienowicz, initially offered $3,500., however, through his designated employee Damion Poirier stated, in writing, to $4,300. So as far as I was concerned we had an agreement from Samy Kamienowicz for $4,300. As a good customer for over 30 years I had no reason to doubt the word of Samy Kamienowicz, or any of his minions. Samy promised that the additional stuff (which I photographed with my iPhone), would be kept separate and a further bid would be presented. I was told if I did not like the price, this stuff would be returned to me. That was a lie. This property was stolen by Samy Kamienowicz, Samy’s Camera and his corrupt staff. Plus, to add insult to injury, after all the gear was inside the Fairfax headquarters Samy Kamienowicz, Samy’s Camera and his corrupt staff did not have a check for me as promised. Next, two security guards approached me, and immediately escorted my out of the parking lot. Yes, I left empty handed. All I got was a promise that the check for $4,300., plus whatever we agreed was the value of the additional gear would be handled the following day, and a check would be cut and in the mail within two days. Finally, after nearly two weeks, I received a check in the amount of $3,500. The lying, thieving Samy Kamienowicz himself wrote on the back of the check: Paid in Full. I wrote my own note under that saying, not true, that this is a partial payment. The additional gear was never discussed as agreed, and I regard that gear as having been stolen property that will presumedly be resold by Samy, which is illegal. Currently, I am exploring my options ranging from a lawsuit to a police report for theft and failure to purchase or return of my property which was stolen. The sad irony with this example of how unethical Samy Kamienowicz actually is. When I was buying Samy’s treated me very well, but once they figured out I’m no longer a customer I found out how unscrupulous they really are. Stay away from the shyster Samy Kamienowicz and his band of hoodlums at Samy’s Camera.
