I don't know that company, but no way am I sending a cc# BEFORE seeing the pics. Thats why pics come with PROOF stamped on them, so you will still have to buy them if interested.

AGREED Cant they email pics with a big copywrite symbol thru them so the buyer at least gets to see where pic was taken or even if the boat is completely in the pic.

Even small thumbnails would help someone decide.

Never money in advance

Magic I used them,I had heard a few bad things about them so I called them first.The CC is not run intill 10 days after you receive them.They sent me three I purchased one and sent the other two back UPS signature required the following day.
I did not have any problem with them the CC is just a deposit and it is a nice picture

I've heard to many bad things and not enough good things to use them. Send me something I can verify and then I'll pay for it.

......I had them do a fly by once but never recieved anything from them.

I have used them, they were good pix, but service was slow to say the best. You should be able to see proofs on their website.

I have 3 different sets, no problems. You can negotiate the price. Make them a lowball offer, something to them is better than nothing.
