DVD Omega, an internet company that appears in Yahoo Shopping and advertises great prices, declares that it does not sell bootleg DVD's. Maybe not, but a boxed set of "The Complete X-Files" that I purchased from them: (1) Shipped from China, (2) Will not play on my DVD player (Some DVD's, but not all, will play on my PlayStation, though. Go figure that.) and (3) The DVD's that will play, skip and jump so badly that they're impossible to watch. I'll let everyone draw their own conclusions as to their origin. Nothing libelous there. I never said they sold junk, did I?
CUSTOMER SERVICE UPDATE - They have the nerve to advertise "24/7 customer service". In my case, the so-called customer service consisted of an apology and a promise to have their "distributor"? contact me "within 48 hours and tell me what to do". (That makes me nervous!) Anyhow, that was over a week ago.
Some free advice (for what it's worth): Buy licensed DVD's from a company you can trust. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it almost certainly is.
NEW CUSTOMER SERVICE UPDATE - In my case, their "24-7 Customer Service" is a total lie. They will, however, tell you how sorry they are within 24 hours. How nice!

NEW JERSEY -- Like another poster pointed out, this website shows pictures of North American/NTSC DVD box sets as the items to be shipped to buyers, and then ships Chinese bootlegged DVD-R/RW copies.
If you are planning on purchasing anything from this unscrupulous merchant, STAY AWAY FROM PLACING ANY ORDERS, as I sadly found out.
Even though the company lists on its website a US, New Jersey address, the box sets are shipped directly from China to the customer's home addresses, and if you have to return items they need to be shipped back all the way to China, at substantial cost and risk !
