Is DazzleDVD.com a bootleg site, too?

We are trying to order for the entire television season of "Boston Public", and we have seen mixed reviews or no reviews about DazzleDVD.com. We have
e-mailed and called them, but we can not get any response. Do you know
of any reliable DVD company that has a "good quality set" of "Boston Public" on DVD?

It's a scam site, yes. Don't buy from there. It's been added to the scam list.

Boston Public is not officially released on DVD. No legitimate site currently has it for sale, for that reason.

At best, all you'll end up getting a really poorly made bootleg homemade set. (Missing episodes, low quality, hissy audio, etc.)
That's assuming the website doesn't just steal your credit card info -- which is what most of them do. They're phishing operations.

It's a show where you'll just have to wait on a release.

yes it is illegal. if you buy stolen property then no matter what it is its illegal. if they are trying to convince you its official when its not and you have no idea thats another story. but if they tell you what it is before you buy and you already know its just as illegal.

Is noting but a fraud. I bought Passions almost 3 months ago-here are her replies-bad news it was returned and had a cheap box by a wall mom said offer to pay for reshipping so I did it started out at 30.00 then more bad news needed another 20 as shipping from Australia is expensive then I emailed her back and she cursed me so I've had. I have gotten the extra postage back but still out 200

Thanked 1 Time in 1 Post
Based on my experience with this company. I think it's not that bad as what others have gone through. The Dark Shadows I ordered from Coopersjd are not complete upon receipt. I emailed the company and a customer support replied within the day. I was surprised coz they asked me for my desired shipping address to send the missing discs and they delivered it rightaway. I think you just need to talk to the company if you have any problems regarding the orders. They reply quickly and find solutions to the problems.

Yes, but very few are legit. There was a good one I dealt with a few years ago, something like Forgotten Shows or Forgotten TV shows, had more recent shows, but in good condition, but they went out of business apparently. Your best bet is either here if you want to trade or maybe Ioffer if you want to buy copies of shows.

Clary is posting from IP 116.93.45.226 (the Philippines), and is likely shill based on location and email address. It's amazing the tactics these liars and scammers will stoop to. Quite a few of these "businesses" (scams) are run from non-USA locations, including the Philippines. Lots of spam also comes from that country, generally for knock-off products. It's just as bad as China, to that extent. Just a few years ago, as much as 90% of all email originating in the Philippines was spam. In more recent years, it's also been true of blog comments and forum posts. In July of this year, Facebook noted that it was being overrun by spam members/comments/likes from Egypt and the Philippines. One of the crapola companies listed here probably hired some SEO spammer company to try and drop its current Google reputation off of page 1.

To address a few specifics in the fake positive feedback...

And again, these are not "companies" but scams run by shady individuals.

I'm glad to see that other people are trying to shut these scammers down. I realize this thread is old, but I think I have information that may prove useful.

Long story short, I myself fell victim to these scum some years ago, and started posting warnings anywhere I could think of. You can read the whole sordid tale, and find additional links and listings of more scam sites on the link below. Some of them mirror lordsmurf's, but you'll find others as well. Here is the link, be sure to read both pages:

My thanks to lordsmurf for spreading the word about these crooks.

I have found two sites that are scams for old TV Shows and movies. One is thesmallscreen.org and the other is cultvideoarchive.highwire.com . Both use credit cards and PayPal, charge your card or account and you never hear from them again.
