My First Bad Experience on eBay

I recently was looking online for a movie I hadn’t seen for about 12 years, ?If looks could kill?”. While searching around on the internet I wasn’t having much luck. Then I decided to check on eBay. There it was, I managed to find the DVD and starwars9111 was the user selling it. So I decided to check out the description to make sure it wasn’t a scam. The description showed the following, as excact:

THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE DVD OF IF LOOKS COULD KILL STARING RICHARD GRIECO. THIS IS A DVD, NOT VCD. COMES WITH CASE, COVER AND ART ON DISC. ALL MY DVD”S ARE NTSC REGION 0. THEY WILL PLAY IN 95% OF ALL U.S. AND CANADIAN DVD PLAYERS. ALL DVD”S HAVE MENUS AND CHAPTER SEARCH. WINNER TO PAY $5 FOR S/H IN THE U.S. AND $7 WORLDWIDE.

PAYMENT MUST BE RECIVED IN 7 DAYS OR NEGATIVE FEEDBACK WILL BE LEFT FOR BUYER. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND PLEASE CHECK OUT THE OTHER DVD”S I HAVE UP FOR AUCTION. EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.

Since this user does not accept Paypal payments I mailed off a money order. After 3 weeks I still had not received the DVD so I shot the user a message, then low and behold the next day the DVD arrived. Once I received the DVD I opened the package to find out this DVD was a pirated copy. It was not used as said in the description. The quality of this pirated DVD was worse than VCD quality.

Since this was my first bad experience I decided to post it as a warning to all other eBay users. I strongly recommend to never do business with this person and to report them for pirating DVD’s for profit. Stay away from the following person:
