tvshowmonster.com / fraudulent dvd sales

United States Review updated:

Contact information:
I attempted to purchase the complete series (all 15 seasons) of The Red Green Show from tvshowmonster.com. I received 2 confirmation e-mails, one stating shipping would take 10-14 days. When I did not receive my order I attempted to contact the company for tracking information. I did eventually receive several responses (about 4 days after my intital e-mail query & 24 hours after I had requested my order be cancelled). They stated that my order had been held up by a "festival" and should arrive "next week." They even offered me $25 off a future purchase.

Upon doing some research about the company, I discovered that the set I ordered could not possibly exist because the distributor had not released all of the show's seasons to dvd yet.

I have asked my credit card company to contest the charges & warned Acorn Media that their products are being fraudlently offered for sale. I am also seeking advice on what to do should I actually receive a pirated dvd.

Went to this website because it was a link on Amazon so I assumed it was a legitamate business. WRONG. Starts with the shipping tab on the website states shipping 10-12 days, when I received confirmation e-mail 10-14 BUSINESS days. Because I needed this item before x-mas I immediatly, within the hour, requested cancellation if they could not deliver before x-mas. No response. Subsequently I have sent 4 more e-mails. NO RESPONSE. No contact phone number. No address. Furthermore, the site touted that the DVD set was in stock, 8 days later it still has not shipped. I understand now these are bootlegged DVDS. BUYER BEWARE!!!

I ordered the Perry Mason boxed set. After approx. three weeks and no delivery or returned calls I contacted my credit card company to dispute this charge and decline any other attempts by this company to place charges on my account. I recieved the package five days later. If you don't not mind watching the Hallmark Channel reruns, not uncut, of Perry Mason, with partial commercials, this is a good deal. However, if this is what I wanted I would have taped the shorter reruns off TV and filtered out the commercials. The old saying applies, you only get what you pay for. There is no return address and the order was shipped from China so I guess I can forget a refund. I have contacted consumer affairs in Maryland and am waiting for a reply. If they are going to record and sell this junk they should at least learn how to use the pause button. There are many other alternatives to this company.

After getting to Amazon.com's website and serching for a specific product a link to another website tvmonster.com show's up at the bottom of the first page of my search so I click on this link. This takes me to a legitamate looking site and because Amazon sent me to this site I thought I could trust them, I was wrong and out $70, it will be a long time if ever again I shop at amazon again of course i'm sure they won't miss my buisness.

i contacted Amazon.com. the link on their site is from a subsidiary of theirs that takes money from the advertisers. So it is a sponsored link by Amazon. They are aware of the problem with this company and said they were doing something about it. I said at a minimum they should be taken off their vendor list immediately. I am supposed to receive news as to what they are going to do.

Don't count on getting your order. They are thieves. After they sent me an email stating my order shipped, I checked the "tracking number" they provided and found it was invalid, per the USPS. I contacted my credit card company and they too verified that the number was fake and are going to credit my account and deduct the payment made to tvshowmonster. I fully intend to file a complaint with the FBI Cyber crimes unit and encourage you to do the same. They are also dba "bestdvdseries" and tvseriesdvd.

I have just placed an order from tvmonster.com for the Beverly hillBillys collection.
Sadly I didn, t do my research until after I had ordered the goods.
After reading all these complaints I must says I am nervous, I guess I will have to wait and see,
But I did find a phone number for customer service 778-282-8099
Called it and actually reached a live person not a recording, for that I am thankfull.
Will post again when and if the goods show up, 14 busness days they say, I am in Canada and expect a bit more of a wait.

I'm so sorry you are going through this! My concern with all these theives and pirates is whether we should cancel our credit cards due to potential identity theft! And how will I know it's legit? I'm reminded of a old saying, if a deal sounds too good to be true, then it probably is!

I also ordered dvds 4 weeks ago and still never got them. And I also sent 6 e-mails and never got a response. There is no phone number to call to check on my order either. This is poor business and I will report this to the Better Business Bureau.

I ordered the Baa Baa Black sheep series form www.tvshowmonster.com I was told that I would receive the order in 10- 14 days, It took a month. When I tried to watch the dvd they would play for a few mins and then freeze, the quality was so poor they were not worth watching. They were copied from the History Channel. I called and email the company many times trying to resolve this issue with no results. I have finally contacted my credit card company and filed a dispute of the charges.
Beware do not order from this company!!!

tvshowmonster.com - Very disappointing!
United States

I ordered the complete set of Gomer Pyle DVDs for my son for his birthday in December. They arrived from somewhere in Asia, in a broken plastic box, with the DVDs loosely in sleeves inside that box. They did not play on our DVD player, although they did play on a portable one, and a number of them appear to be defective and don't work. Very disappointing!

tvshowmonster.com - Oredered a movie called the district
United States
Phone: unknown

My daughter in law ordered the movie the district from this website the last part of November. She put it on her debit card and was having the movie sent to my address at 467 n James avenue, east wenatchee, wa. 98802 Rachel has tried tracking this and all she gets that it is in shipping. Rachel's address is 1035 tieton eastates dr. , tieton, wa. 98947 telephone numbe 1 - 509 - 728 - 2282. I am Sally Montgomery her mother in law that had Rachel order this movie so i could give it to my husband for a Christmas present. The site represented that it would take 7 to 14 days. I have never received it and there is no way you can contact these people unless you email them. I have sent 4 different emails and no response. I didn't realize that this site was a scam until i started looking on the Internet and realizing that other people have been scammed also. I would appreciate a reply regarding this matter and also my daughter in law Rachel Loyd will be contacted her bank to dispute this charge. This site should be taken off the Internet and should not be doing business in the us or anyplace else. Thanks you sally Montgomery my email address is sallyglenmont@charter. Net phone number is 509 - 884 - 7905 p. S. Hopefully something can be done about this asap!!!

this is outrageous. How do we go about filing fraud charges? To the better business bureau or police or what?

tvshowmonster.com - non delivery of product

Like others I have seen here, I ordered the complete set of boy meets world from this website. I was directed to the website via Amazon.com. I am shocked to see that Amazon would be so careless as to have a link to a non-legal entity. I would like to know how to do something about this. Isn't Amazon liable at all? Why don't any of them make it easy to lodge a complaint.
