Dear Bootlegger

If I have asked you over and over if the DVDs you’re selling are the real deal, because I have been burned by people selling crappy pirated off the TV or old VHS tapes, then burned to DVDs and calling them ‘box sets’, even with network logos from different TV stations on them, and you tell me “Original discs, used but in great condition”, you have NO call to get all snarky and pissy when I send you an email voicing my disappointment in selling me bootlegged.

I checked all my correspondence with you, and you on more than one occasion, assured me that the DVDs were originals. Imagine my disappointment and then anger when I open the box, and find out what you have sold to me is not Original box set, and not even original discs in new CD/DVD cases, but obviously burned/copied DVDs. All you have to to is turn em over and take a look and you see the telltale ‘blue/purple’ dvd underside, rather than the gold-ish color of a proper DVD.

Yes, you gave me a full refund, saying I don’t have to send the pirated discs back to you, but then you whined at me that you have to pay an overdraft fee? Maybe you should have thought of that before selling pirated goods, yes?

You told me to just throw them away. No, I am going to see about sending them back, as I don’t want them. But I have to make sure that when I send them back, if the parcel gets tapped for customs inspection, that *I* don’t get into trouble for shipping pirated media.
