Modern technologies have not only benefited society (Nikon is a good example of this) but have also attracted scammers who misuse these technologies for illegal financial gain. As those scammers get more sophisticated, experts advise using even more sophisticated technologies to fight them.
Here, at Nikon-Film, we are a small company that sells products that are increasingly difficult to find, and we try to do so at a reasonable price. We cannot invest in sophisticated technologies to fight sophisticated technologies, and any type of fraud could mean the disappearance of our business.
On other hand, when we consider this question, we have clear that new technologies don’t necessarily replace old ones —instead, they add to them, and since, after all, we are a vintage company, our payment system is also vintage: the old trusty bank transfer.
The bank account provided will ALWAYS be a SEPA bank account in Belgium with the following IBAN structure:
BEXX XXXX XXXX XX15 (16 digits in total, two first digits: BE and two last digits: 15).
An account different than above must be cosidered fake.
Once the transfer is received, the product will be shipped, with tracking, within the next 24 hours (excluding weekends).
