Got ripped off on Ebay

So, the TA was a bootleg. So are the P57's that he had marked as "NEW" and "sealed." Nope. Not "NEW." The wrapping that they were in was clearly a home job and they dont even play. TA plays, but its all pixel-y so I don't see it playing for long...not that I would want to work out to a pixel-y video anyway. So, what do i do? I've definitely learned my lesson, but what do I do now? How do I go about getting my money back? Report him first? I've never had to do this before! I'm so pissed! I was really looking forward to a P57 workout today too!

Boy, that really sucks.
1st step--contact seller and confront and request a COMPLETE refund. Give him/her a time frame. If they don't meet it, contact ebay (probably will want to report to ebay anyway).

If that doesn't work, contact paypal.

You'll get your $$ back.

I'm done with buying on ebay. Too many crooks than real honest people. I'd rather go with legitimate outlets; less headache.

I'd suggest file on ebay that the DVDs are bootlegs.

Oh no! I agree with the suggestion above. First, contact the seller and ask for a full refund (including shipping). If he asks to ship the DVDs back, make sure you get DC when you ship it back and since its his fault, I would suggest asking for the money to ship it back as well.

Secondly, ebay has a buyer protection policy. Here's the link:

Before going to paypal, contact ebay.

Hope this helps and good luck getting this situation resolved!!

Its hard to trust what you get on Ebay, even when they say "new, sealed". I got Rockin Body off of Ebay and am starting to wonder if it is a bootleg since it has started to pixelate through the workouts. When I first got them I was pleased and impressed because they looked like real Beachbody products that were sealed, I still can't figure out how to determine if they are bootlegs.

I did that. I sent him a message demanding money back, so we'll see what he says. And then yes, I will contact ebay if he doesnt refund my money.

You should report his fraud to Ebay, even if he gives you a refund, otherwise he'll keep on selling it. If Ebay gives him a warning due to your report, then he will hopefully stop.

Well, I got the P57's to play, but since I can tell that the shrink wrap was not a professional job and there's a distinct "stink" to each of the dvds, I still know that they aren't real. Right? I'm watching TA right now, and it works, but the quality is not what I know of Tracy, so I know for sure that that one isnt real.

I'm still waiting for a response from him. His seller name is "youvideostuff" so can all avoid him. I'm so mad at myself right now. i should have known better! I'm so mad that I dont even feel like trying out the p57 (it works, so i could in theory do it, but i'm just feeling very deflated).
