I've bought many DVD's on eBay, yesterday I received my first counterfeit/bootleg copy... it kind of ticked me off. No security seals, a couple of small glitches during play and my computer tells me it's a ripped copy. Oh well, now I know why they were selling for only $7.99! Being so cheap it was not worth the hassle of messing with, but I took the courtesy anyway of informing the seller in case he was unaware.
What happened next surprised me, no questions asked, he cancelled the order and refunded my money. Hmm, that's suspicious... so I checked his feedback, apparently other people have noted that they have received bootlegged copies as well.
Don't think for one second that those people don't know good and well they are selling bootlegged copies. That's why they refunded your money so fast. I recently bought a new version of Quicken off eBay that was listed as brand new. Although stated that it didn't come with a box I assumed it would at least be a legit CD. What I got was a home burned CD with a printed label and some "receipt" from quicken that mentioned volume license except referred to TurboTax and not Quicken. I told the seller in no uncertain terms that there was no way I was trusting my financial data with a copy of quicken who's pedigree I couldn't verify. He insisted it was legit and I told him that unless he could provide me with a CD from Intuit or a link to download the copy from them then I wanted a refund. He said he'd give me one but when he didn't after a few days I filed an "item not as described". I also reported it to Quicken via a form on their website.
