Fake/Copied DVD's on ebay?

11
Found 19th Feb 2009
I really want to buy the sopranos boxset (season 1-6). However Ive noticed a couple which are black boxes and others grey boxes. I have bought copied dvd's a couple of times off e/bay before so Im abit apprehensive about buying it first.

For example one im looking at is item number 190288013467. The discs look a little off colour tho which makes me think they could be copies. I just want to be careful before spending £60+ plus that could be fake, just want to know if there are ok. Mind you theres a few listings for black and grey boxes (more so grey). Is it one is special edition or something?

Mmm, looks a bit dodgy to me, you don't normally get original DVDs that work in regions 1, 2 and 3 do you?

Yes, you can quite common but normally not in the big name shows, things like anime often comes in multi region format, not region 0/free but region 1,2 4 normally on the disc

Not sure if its a copy or not, but that one you saw on ebay can be get brand new here dvdsetshop.com/pro…tml & its region free not sure if it s copy tho

I'd go with your gut feeling and stay away.
You could ask for a definite region coding from him.To say regions 1,2 and 3 would indicate region0 and therefore fakes,for the sopranos anyway.Like ryouga says,you can get region0's that are not fakes,but they do tend to be cheap production stuff like you can get in poundland or 'adult' material :whistling:

£14 for p&p, wtf?

Looks dodgy though that does, the cover looks cheap, reflects the price i suppose lol

DVDSETSHOP is ropey as hell!
All region 0! :roll:

My mate bought a set off ebay of the sopranos, turned out to be fake

The box was good and that, but instead of having it instead proper cases inside the box, its just sleeves with dvds in.

To be honest i think that might be what that seller is selling, why did he need to take them all out of the box.:thumbsup:

Does the seller have good feedback? You could try contacting them and let them know you will leave negative, open a paypal dispute and return the item if it turns out to be a copy. Friend of mine was successful in doing this.

y buy on ebay if you dont trust it

I was looking to buy lee evans live at the o2 and 1 seller was selling backup copies of it which I thought was a bit strange x x x x x
