DVDdonkey.com / Website scam!

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Odered the Red Green show Complete DVD. Charged my card for $163. Never sent items. They will not responed to any emails, phone calls, or talk to me on live chat. I have sent the information to my credit card company to have them refund the money to my card but who can I report this website to. This is obviously illegal and they need to be stopped. And convicted of fraud.

Please help me with this problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kevin.

    I filed with the Federal Trade Commission on line, you should too at:
    https://rn.ftc.gov/pls/dod/wsolcq$.startup?Z_SUBMIT_FLAG=Y

    I contacted them about my Muppets DVD boxed set. I bought it at dvddonkey.com. (they keep changing their company name but are all the same: tvaddicts, dvdigniter.com, ultimatedvdshop.com, dvdplanet.com)

    They charged my card over $100.00. I contacted them through the live chat AFTER trying the 877-7-TV SHOW (joke) and the 877-TV-SERIES. "Marie" answered and here is our entire conversation:

    Please wait for a site operator to respond.
    All operators are currently assisting others. Thanks for your patience. An operator will be with you shortly.
    All operators are currently assisting others. Thanks for your patience. An operator will be with you shortly.
    You are now chatting with 'Marie'
    Marie: hi
    Marie: how may i help you?
    you: Hello?
    you: Hi I just read two recent complaints stating that this company did not deliver over $1000 order and that this company is fake What type of information can you provide to me, ie where they are actually located, phone number, etc.
    you: I placed an order earlier this month and now I am concerned.
    Marie: our contact number is 1-877-tv-show
    Marie: we been in this business for more than 4 years now (at this point I was getting concerned due to the grammar here..."we been in this business...?? yikes)
    Marie: i dont think we're going to be here until now if we dont provide good customer service
    you: is there a way you can check on my order
    you: i am only checking because my husband is a police officer and he is mad that i did this on line
    you: he said there is so much ID fraud
    Marie: well we cannot please everybody, maybe our competitor is doing all this stuff
    Marie: we just want to continue providing our customers what they need
    you: can you check on my order?
    you: and i thought the site said the number is 877-tv series
    Marie: that's our other number
    you: can you tell me about my order please
    Marie: what's your transactin id
    you: plus 877 tv show doesnt equal enough numbers
    you: my husband is getting the print out for my id number
    you: believe me i will file charges if this is fraud
    you: why did you give me an incomplete phone number?
    you: hello?
    you: hello?
    you: hello? (after waiting several minutes...)
    you: Well well well
    you: that's fine
    you: thank goodness we are so close with officers in the fraud and forgery department
    you: i have recorded this entire conversation
    you: i want a call back within 24 hours with an date of delivery of my dvd set
    you: You can find my order under Aimee AXXXX
    you: along with that you will locate my phone number
    Chat session has ended.
    And I was "hung-up" on basically.
    Does anyone know where they are located so we can contact the fraud and forgery dept? Please respond to my comment. This needs to be stopped!!!!

    Got ahold of Karen (1 0f the 3 fake customer service reps of Marie, Karen or Jen) and she would not give me any info on where they are located except for Miami, FL (yeah, right). I was 'hung up" on (session ended) 3 times!!

    This company has had several incarnations. I bought from them under another name. I ordered the series, "The Paper Chase". I read all the complaints AFTER I placed my order but before I received my merchandise. So, my expectations were very low. Surprisingly, they did send the DVDs. However, they are recorded off of the TV and the quality is s0-so. Given that the series is not available commercially, I was somewhat pleased to have a copy. However, anyone who is expecting a studio quality product will be sorely disappointed. If the series are available elsewhere from a legitimate commercial source, then, by all means, buy them there. For an obscure title, you may want to take a chance. By the way, I think the company is located offshore since they are skirting the copyright laws.

    I sent a money order and received only half of my order, but the ones I did get froze in the middle of the show.

    I ORDERED THE RIFLEMAN COMPLETE 168 EPISODES FROM DVDDONKEY AND I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED THEM. I TALKED TO THEIR FAKE REPRESENTATIVES ON LINE AND THEY GAVE ME ONE EXCUSE AFTER ANOTHER. THEY EVEN GAVE ME A FAKE TRACKING NUMBER! SOMETHING MUST BE DONE TO STOP THESE CROOKS.

    Wow! I was just about to spend a lot of money at DVDDONKEY.COM, but after reading all these complaints, I have since changed my mind. I'm certainly glad I investigate websites that are new to me for any type of complaints. It pays in the end.

    I ordered the complete set of Twinpeaks, even got a tracking number. Finally called Canadapost after 2 weeks and they had no record of the number. Sorry I didn't check them out first have learned an expensive lesson. Remember to watch your credit card statement, after all, they have the info.

    They offer a DVD set of the TV series "Dark Skies", which doesn't seem to have been produced according to all of the web sites and blogs I have visited after doing a web search for the title.

    I ordered Dean Martin set of15 DVD's. The same day my bank Florida Telco the department of fraud prevension called me to ask if I would like to let this transaktion go trought, I realized that the print I had for confirmation had no amount and the price they was trying to charge me was more then the one I agreed to pay. I am so pleased with my bank I had all my money back.
    But BE AWARE that when you did the transaction w dvddonkey it was not HTTPS ( it was only http - NOT SECURE ), so your information is out there in Internet not protected.
    I had to cancel my debit card and reorder it with new number.

    I ordered from there in September and still haven't received anything. This is ridiculous. I wish I read this before I spent $120. They have to be stopped, This isn't fair. I spoke to "Jen" and "Karen". This is BS!

    Called to confirm DVD was in stock (twice) and they said yes. Ordered DVD, after one week with no response. Added $7.00 to bill for "surcharge" without permission. Called today, DVD on back order. Recommend you stay clear of this ripoff company.

    I wish I'd read this before I ordered. My credit card has been debited but nothing from DVDDonkey. I've contacted my credit card company about this. Credit companies need to know and stop allowing cards to be used by these scam sites.

    Apparently like many others we have ordered dvd's from this website, the money has been debited from our account but we have never seen any goods. No response from any of our emails. Do NOT order from this website.
