Amazon / amazon allows bootleg vhs video sales
Amazon turns a blind eye on Marketplace sellers who blatantly profit on illegal sales of an endless supply of bootleg VHS videos of out-of-print movies and prevent the sales of authentic copies of these movies from legitimate sellers. It's very easy to spot this fraud listings and yet Amazon does not investigate, respond to or take seriously any reports on these particular sellers.
Only buyers can expose them by buying a copy of one of their bootleg movies, file an Amazon complaint to get their money back (this is easy because of Amazon guarantees) and leave a "1" score, a big negative on the seller clearly stating that they are bootleggers to warn future customers. Pretty soon, their ratings will come down.
The biggest bootlegger I’ve spotted is DJSBOOKS1
Check out this DJSBOOKS1 listings of rare movies such as My Sweet Charlie (1970), To Each His Own (1946), Movie Movie (1978) and many many more.
DJSBOOKS1 has 755 items in his storefront all listed at the lowest price to monopolize the sales. Almost all are bootleg faked rentals and is listed with one description:
Video quality is Great, exrental. Box cut and in NEWER Rental Case. Slight Wear on case, in Like New Condition. Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed.
Here is an example of a negative feedback left for this crook:
1 out of 5: "WARNING: SELLS ILLEGAL VHS BOOTLEGS! Homemade FAKE artwork put in NEW Clam case on CHEAP new tapes. I am FURIOUS! Charges $$$ for HOMEMADE bootleg VHS copies! I'm sending evidence to FBI. She is a SCAM! Cuts apart artwork poorly HOMEMADE on COPIER! Ruined my TRUST in people! I've been Lied to and GOUGED. She's LAUGHING at every sale! DON'T BE NEXT! Degrades AMAZON'S reputation. She is BUSTED!"

Please help exterminate this crook who is making so much money. Why do I care? Because I see so many honest sellers being robbed of legitimate sales by this crook and its partner Amazon who condones this fraud.
