Need Some Advice

Post by Black Ninja » Sat Jan 20, 2007 4:39 pm

Okay I bought this:
http://www.tvdvdplanet.com/movie/drama/ ... eaven.html
and I just got it today, and its some pirated peice of shit. The DVD video is not the DVD, whoever made it, recorded it off TV(TVland infact, the stupid logo is always on my screen), and it is totally obvious that this is pirated bullshit. Has anyone had any experiences with this site, and have any advice on how I can get the real thing or get my damn money back?

They've only released seasons 1-3 on DVD. So, getting a pirated version like that is the only way to get seasons 4 and 5.

No offense, but that is pretty obvious that that is a bootleg. It says region 0, and also says it is on DVD-R. I doubt there is anything you can do to get your money back.

No kidding. They had to have made at least a $190 profit.


At any rate, the best you could probably do is email them. Their site says they will accept returns, but it's anyone's guess if they will reply to you or not. Who knows, the only way to find out is to email them.

If you used a credit card you can do a chargeback citing it was bootleg merchandise. If you did it through debit I'd call the bank and tell them to reverse it.

A family friend of ours told me that I could get a collectors edition of highway to heaven at this crappy site. So he called me up and said that he's going to buy this dvd set and that I could pay him back when I get the money.

Well your situation just got a whole hell of a lot more complicated. I think you just lost $200.

Hey I just found out today that my friend got his money back after all so I don't have to worry about paying him back anymore.
