I bought the lion king dvd off a seller on the site and its not got the disney shiny sticker on the side. I think its a fake but unsure what to do as i dont really want to open it as its a present :(
Also the pictures on the front and back dont seem to be as sharp to me as they should
Any advice much appreciated :)
Thanks

Anyone can sign up & sell/buy on this site. The dvd sounds dodgy to me too, you could always email the site with your doubts?
I've bought before & all has been ok

Price Minister is just a market place but they do provide guarantees, eg

http://www.priceminister.co.uk/help/c_grnt_br/popup/true

Have a read through their FAQs

http://www.priceminister.co.uk/help/c

You should contact Price Minister and tell them you think it may be a fake, you should be able to return it and get your money back

Maybe just an Import... Uk and European versions have holograms... other countries don't.. I think.

do you have a link to the website hun, if it doesnt have the Disney hologram logo on the outside packaging or on the dvd case its probably a fake.

ok ive got mine out, the main outside box opens up and inside theres a bit about the movie.
on the main dvd case turn it over and on the top right hand side there should be a proof of purchase bar code with 4 little tabs.on the dvd itself there should be a stock number, under where it says disc 1, right hand side should have the disney dvd logo this is the old type not the new hologram logo


thanks so much for your advice, ive tried posting the images but ive pmed you too, if i could give you loads of rep i would but it will only let me give it you once :lol:

What colour is the dvd case?

From what I understand most Disney ones are purple.

You may have to bite the bullet and open it.

If it turns out to be legit you could just claim the disc was loose and you were worried about scratches so had to open it to re-seat.
#11
I dont really want to open it as its a christmas present but do you think i have to?
#12
This store is well known as a fake xx
#13
vinylandtrinkets
you could always say you had to open it cos the disc was loose like another poster said, to me it sounds like its a region 1 like i said in my pm, so unless the dvd player will support region 1 its not going to work if its genuine or if you try it on a region 2 player and it plays i think its a copy.

is it for some one close to you? if its for a child i would open it


She is my step sister and is 15, but really wanted this dvd, ive contacted the site and not heard back yet but to be honest i dont expect to hear from them until at least monday
Thanks for staying to help me :oops:
#14
Ive opened the dvd, it has a small picture of a globe on it with 1 on the inside of it. My dvd player is a pacific one from asda so not top of the range and it plays.
Im devestated, this cost me 20 sodding pounds.
What do I do now:cry: :cry:

hun, the site is registered to a French owner so the sale of goods act limits any recompense if anything goes wrong, trading standards won't do a thing

I hope you get a refund :?

So even if it's not a fake it's region 1 not region 2 as per the listing on Price minister.

Contact Price Minister and complain via the lin in my post above they do have systems in place for this type of thing you mat get your money back

Does it look real?

If it looks real and not a shoddy knockoff and the DVD menu and stuff is all as it should be and the DVD box isn't just a bad photocopy stuck to a cheap case then you may as well give it to her as I doubt she will know the difference.

Also the DVD player you used may be multiregion out of the box so therefore would be able to play a region 1 disc. I was looking on Amazon.com the US site and the images they had of the Lion King two disc special edition had a black box rather than a purple one.

EDIT: Just looked up Pacific DVD players from Asda and it seems some are actually sold multiregion out of the box so the DVD may well be a legit R1 copy and your player is able to play it.
#22
No its obviously fake, the copied disks are quite shoddy, the case is really flimsey. The more important thing to me is that i know its fake now, i paid £20 to a con artist and i cant give it to her
#23
Ouch.

That's the trouble with buying from auction type sites. My brother once paid £100 for a complete TV series off Ebay and when it finally came it was thirty copied DVD-R's tied on a loop of string wrapped in bubble wrap.

From Price Minister FAQ:

'If you feel the actual condition of the item truly is different to the condition originally specified by the seller by at least two levels (e.g. if the item was described as being in 'Excellent Condition' but is actually in 'Good Condition') you can make a claim by logging onto your account, going to the section marked 'My Purchases' and clicking on the relevant order.

You will be asked to provide a reason for your claim and to describe the problem in as much detail as possible in the 'Comments' section. We will then get back in touch with you to explain how to return the item.

If the item itself is faulty, damaged or broken, we will return it to the seller and/ or lodge a claim with the delivery handler. You will then be refunded the purchase price, as well as the P&P charges incurred.
'

Or alternately there is a not what I ordered mentioned here as well.

Take good quality pictures of everything before you send anything away so you have proof it was fake.
#24
Thanks for replying to me ive left you some rep
Ive filed my complaint under the option for counterfeit goods, but i will take photos as proof.
All i can do now I suppose is play the waiting game and see what they say
#25
No i have no details apart from what you can see in my link on the site for the dvd, thanks for the offer of looking around i think i will just keep getting my dvds from reputable companies from now on.
Thanks for all of your help. It really is much appreciated.
I hope i get a refund too :)
#26
Well, much to my surprise i recieved an email from the site at 9.05am asking me to post off the dvd to them and they will look at it and reimburse (sp) me for the full amount plus postage, they want me to send it recorded delivery but without a signature, so ill have to ask at the post office.
I need to print off the email that they sent me and my damn printer has decided to only let the paper go in so far so doesnt end up printing grrr, so when i take the kids to my dads tomorrow ill have to print it off there.
Thank you once again for following me with this, i cant thank you enough :)

Just remember to take photos of everything as otherwise you are sending your only proof.

The Lion King DVD is notorious for being fake as they are in such a short supply.
