The quickest way to spot them is by the price. If anyone has a price significantly lower than B&H it is a scam.
That might be a teensy bit of an overstatement , but anything priced significantly lower than B&H is certainly suspect. I think most of us agree that B&H is the gold standard of internet/mail order reliability. There are certainly other good and reputable online stores (some of which advertise right here on Wetpixel!) that sometimes have lower prices than B&H, but checking the price at B&H will give you a good idea as to whether an advertised price is reasonable or not. If it's $20 cheaper someplace else, it might be fine; if it's hundreds of dollars cheaper, you should immediately smell a rodent-like odor...
