I’m a little bit of a collector and I’ve been looking for the Major League DVD with the turf sleeve and was so happy to see it on Ebay. I thought I hit paydirt since Ebay had various sellers selling the same exact DVD with the green turf DVD sleeve that I had been searching for. I chose the cheaper priced one and sent a message to the seller asking if the DVD was exactly like the picture on Ebay. I never got a reply and I was so excited about the DVD I decided to purchase it anyway and when I did receive the DVD it came without the turf sleeve unlike the one the seller had pictured. Maybe I’m nuts but I find this deceptive practice on behalf of Ebay. When I complained to the seller this was his response:
Hello. You were not deceived. The upc numbers are same match as both our distributor which is Ingram Entertainment (google them if you like) and the Ebay dvd libary. The difference is that the cover on the Ebay listing is actually a sleeve that comes off and then the correct item is under the sleeve. Ingram does not supply the sleeve because the manufactor made only a small fraction of this item with the sleeve and charged much for that edition. They lowered the price and eliminated the sleeve but it is still the same item listing on Ebay with the same upc number. We have sold alot of this title and yoor complaint is the 1st of this nature. If you say you did not get a response to your question. Why did you purchase it the item? Thanks.
Now my problem is if you have a picture of a cadillac to sell but send the buyer a volkswagen instead wouldn’t that be deceptive??
I’ve sent messages to various sellers on Ebay that are selling the same DVD showing a picture of the DVD with the green turf sleeve and so far I’ve gotten no responses as to whether or not they are actually selling the DVD with the turf sleeve as shown on the picture.
If this practice isn’t considered dishonest and deceitful then what would you call it???
