Foscam and Amcrest

Postby LOZ » Mon Feb 01, 2016 10:00 am

I used to regularly get email sale offers for Foscam cameras. For some time now I've only received offers for Amcrest cams. What's going on? I have a long history with Foscam and am familiar with the different models; however, I don't have any history with Amcrest. What's the relationship between Foscam and Amcrest? Why don't I get offers on Foscam cams anymore?

Resellers can sell other things. is a Foscam Reseller.

Ever see a car dealership that sells more than one car brand on the same car lot? No difference.

Additionally, there maybe time periods where some brands have heavier marketing campaigns when a Reseller is selling multiple brands.

The website shows sql error:

Please see my post: counterfeit-baby-monitor-t19228.html

I bought a baby monitor from back in April, and I'm now being told by Foscam China that the model is a fake. What is going on here?
