      Asia eh? Says it all. Bootlegs 'R' us!

      There are billion cheap bootlegs pouring out of Asia they're usually poor quality copies discwise, although the artwork can be hard to detect. Last time I looked for a DVD boxset on eBay it was a case of spot the genuine edition amongst the fakes!

      Wouldn't touch 'em with a bargepole personally.

      they did offer a credit to my credit card of $33
      I don't know about Wisconsin, but if this had been UK I would advise cancelling the card or placing a severe limit on the amount that can be drawn on it. You may find you have purchased a motor in HongKong.
      I would never give my card number to anyone in a foreign country. As the post heading implies, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.

      As besides the site looking iffy from the off so people not do any research before ordering from such sites or is it because they see such a 'bargain' that they don't bother.
