PayPal will act swiftly, so definitely go that route. Definitely do not send it back.

I'm sorry to hear that it turned out to be bootleg You definitely need to report him to Ebay so they can get rid of him as a seller and also be sure to leave him negative feedback once the issue is resolved (i.e., you have your $ back)!

BTW, I found him on Ebay & so far he has 100% feedback. Looks like he is brand new, only been under this user ID for 30 days but he could have previously used a different ID & sold bootlegs with that one too!

The last time I bought anything on eBay was about a month ago. I paid via PayPal and my account got hacked almost immediately. My credit card was used to buy $350 in credit at an on-line gambling site.

PayPal did act immediately and issued a refund. Then they locked my account and it turned into this incredible hassle to even get it activated again. I finally gave up and don't have PayPal anymore OR buy on eBay. Oh well, it will probably save me many many dollars over the long run.

The last dispute I filed through Ebay, I did get my money back so I am inclined to trust what they are telling you to do.

This person has two listed, and both listings say the same thing:

NOW WHAT?????
Just chiming in here - if this seller is telling the truth, then he should be scared of consequences....tell him that you are going to contact TA and she will press charges. This happened to me with awhile back with Cathe's Hardcore set - it was suppose to be brand new, price wasn't even cheap ...came delivered ...nothing shrink wrapped, no cardboard case. I told him that charges would be pressed if my $ was not returned within 24 hours. I got all my $ back.

I think if you mailed the DVD back first, there goes your proof!

Doesn't this fall into mail fraud? Do you have his actual name? Anything you can use to get him scared that he will be treated as a criminal.

It happens. It shouldn't...but it does.
Yeah, i'm totally annoyed that he's not fessing up. Instead he just made up a lie about getting it overseas which I know is a lie since in his description before he said that his gym closed and that he had these dvds left over.

I keep trying to go thru the process with paypal, but it keeps sending me to ebay automatically. I did all the steps that everyone has suggested, but its like ebay and paypal are working together and there isnt anything I can do about it.

I dont want to send them back before I get a refund b/c then i'm afraid that I will send them back and still not get a refund. So at this point, I guess if he isn't willing to refund BEFORE, then I will just keep them. They work, so at least theres that. The TA is bad quality, but its more than I had before. And the P57's work as well. When I first put them in and hit play, I get an error message that we usually see when we put a burned dvd into our dvd player. Then if i hit play again, it will start right up. The quality of these is fine when watching them. How long they would work, who knows. I just dont want to send them back AND get no refund. At least this way I'm left with the workouts that i wanted even at subpar quality (and even if they poop out, i didnt pay much for the p57's, so oh well, i guess i'd have to buy them if it turns out i like them) - which i guess is better than nothing.

I just dont know what to do! Ebay is of no help!

If ebay & paypal aren't helping, can't you just dispute it on your credit card? I'd also contact the owners of the copyrite and let them know their workouts have been bootlegged... if nothing else, they can check into them too.
I got a bootleg, and I contacted the seller & told them I'd contact ebay & paypal & dispute the charges...and they sent back a note that they'd refund the charges.
Sorry your seller is more of a weenie.
Maybe just dispute with your CC, and skip ebay & paypal.

yes, i agree, maybe it's time for you to contact your credit card company- they are usually very good about stuff like this.
