hi,

i recently bought some dvds from this site. some of the boxsets they sent me were not those advertised but cheap looking replacements and when i checked all boxsets there was at least one dodgy disk in each making it impossible to sell for profit on ebay

has anyone else had similar problems with this site

how bout the seller rating? did you buy from a trustworthy seller? put his/her id here so nobody will deal with him anymore. I never buy from dhgate.. but just incase somebody else need some reference they can llok it here..

ok

this is the seller id: chanel9706. i bought a couple of boxsets. when i got them they were the wrong type. the ones sent to me look like the cheapest of the cheap. checked them out. some of the disks were damaged. some of the disk although labeled differently were exactly the same which means i am now short episodes and on top of that when i bought them there were to be 2 bonus disks. obviously they are not present either. sucks

his selling rating was positive but i have learned lately that these ratings are not to be trusted either.

is there any supplier out there not trying to rip me off. please help

Hello

If you purchase the bootleg asian ripoffs, you will always get faulty dvds, sometimes totally blank discs.

It is illegal to sell this to consumers and should be avoided.

Check that the merchandise is official region encoded. For example, Region 1 is for the US/Canada markets. Region FREE dvds are illegal copies, and should not be purchased. The only Region Free dvds that are legitimate are public domain and some small indie companies. All major studios region encode their dvds.

Unfortunatley, many people are looking for a new release for $3, and this is impossible. These illegal bootleg operations take advantage of those too willing to believe it exists.

Good luck.

Yes Chanel did rip you off. He's very bad for you and you should tell everyone to avoid it.


If you must deal with DHgate, deal with tradekicks or someone who has 300 powerseller rating.

They will be as honest as they can be, and you can be sure you will not get a illegal knock-off.

Well, you can not really prove the feedback is fake or not and so its still unlikely you'll ever get into trouble.

DHGate did start shaping up some now after the recent INTERPOL investigation of their businessmen, they now offer 'WAREHOUSE DIRECT SHIPPING' meaning you can go to the actual source.


The source would be the 'FREIGHT SHIPS', which carry plenty of legitimate products. All at wholesale cost, but it is ON the SHIPS. Things not coming out of the ships, may be just as well an illegal bootleg branded and created in someone's shop over there.

Thousands of those scams and garage sales run all over Hong Kong. But, by buying direct from the 'SHIPPING YARD' you are almost always getting perfect service.

DHgate is just a directory of sources. So you can't blame the site, just the sellers on there...
