TV Addicts / DVD Monkey / Rip off!

Contact information:

I wish I had read thr [redacted] first... I was looking to buy the complete series WKRP in Cinncinnati for my husband for Christmas. Everywhere I checked had only the 1st season or out of stock on the series. I ordered from TVAddicts and never got anywhere but processing. I called and emailed, tried the live chat(no answer) so I finally decided that it wasn't coming and found it at DVD Monkey. No where on their website did it appear they were affiliated with TVAddicts until I hit the pay button and the phone number came up... Imagine my surprise when it was exactly the same. So now I have ordered it twice...called several times, emailed even more times and finally given up. I ended up ordering the 1st season from and it appears I now will have to fight with the credit card company also.

Live and Learn... and definitely check the [redacted] first!!

    I too ordered my husband a gift box set of DVD's... "The Johnny Cash Show".... It was to be a complete box set. My debit card was processed and that was on November 20, 2007 and I still have not received the set I ordered for my husband.

    I too was tried to get in touch with the company through telephone calls, e-mails and finally received an 4 emails dated December 26, 2007 stating that the DVD's had been shipped on December 12, with the tracking number from a Canadian Post Office, except there is no such tracking number available. I have cancelled my debit card due to possibility of identiy theift.

    I DO NOT RECEMMOND to anyone that wants to receive what they ordered.

    If anyone has ideas of how we can stop this type of behavior from companies like this please feel free to respond.

    tvaddicts simply took the money and shipped nothing. And they also have the name tvdonkey. Same b.s. artists and now i'll be fighting with the credit card company. Seems like it's vigilante time for these characters.

    I was also ripped off. I was shopping online for the Dean Martin Roast series and found it at a resonable price at DVD Monkey through yahoo shopping. Anyhow, the DVD NEVER came, and when I contacted the web site, I got a reply that they never sold that DVD. They processed my credit card when I ordered the DVD. Does anyone have any idea how I get my money back or how these frauds can be stopped?

    I was scammed by I ordered the complete Bewitched DVD set and my total was $138.49. My credit card was never charged as they said the set was backordered. My credit card information was captured and I am now being charged for all kinds of memberships I didn't apply for. Do not use this company, it is a scam and a costly one at that!!
