I ordered a box set of dvds (Boston Public) from the online website www.tvboxset.com. I believed the website to be legitimate. It turns out they only "rip" poor-quality video content from tv recordings and then ship the discs (major copyright infringement). In addition they sent me many damaged and unusable discs!
I contacted them about this, and they guaranteed a refund. However...weeks went by and I never received one. I contacted them and they sent me an email indicating I was an idiot, saying "just tell your bank to issue a charge-back." I have not heard from them since.
They apparently use the company "WWW.SXR.CA" for credit purchases, which is based out of Canada. I assume the company (or individual) is based there.
My debit line item is specified below:

Investigating the website, I find that they also use aliases such as:
DVDcollections.tv and have been scamming people for some time on such websites.
They use a proxy (DOMAINSBYPROXY.COM: a subsidiary of goDaddy.com) to register their domains so their identity is concealed. I therefore need a subpoena (and thus a lawsuit) to retrieve their contact information! (they have covered their tracks quite well)
I would love to pursue legal measures against this company! I care very little about the money involved to do so (it's a matter of principal!). Additionally, I think a class action suit might be feasible, considering how many people have been scammed.
If any legal counsel would want to contact me regarding this, please do so!
My email and contact information is found on my website: (((ROR REDACTED)))
In any lawsuit I pursue, I would very much like to name the domain registrar, domainsbyproxy.com, as co-defendant as well. Dealing with them is extremely difficult, insulting, and all they seem to care about are the scammers they protect. They have to be held liable in some way for the sites they conceal!
In short, TVBOXSET.COM scammed me out of $80. Do not use their services. No matter how long or how much money is takes, I will seek justice in the courts.
