Any warnings for spotting Hitchcock Criterion bootlegs?

I did a search and didn't find anything on this. Simular to Salo, The Killer and SOTL, has anyone seen any bootleg copies of Criterion's Hitchcock Spellbound, Notorious and Rebecca? I found Notorious a couple of weeks ago at Borders books. I want to get the other two and want to know what to look for so I can tell a good one from a bootleg.

Dont' buy from people in Malaysia, since they usually sell bootlegs. Check that the covers don't have chinese characters. If you are buying from ebay, check the seller's feedback and the place where the DVD is coming from. I haven't seen any bootleg copies of the Hitchcock Criterions yet. All of them except for Rebecca, can still be found for MSRP through several online retailers. Right now only Rebecca and the complete boxset are fetching high prices. I recommend that you buy the Criterion boxset and sell or trade your copy of Notorious since you will be saving time and money getting each title one by one.

WARNING! Be careful buying Hitchcock Criterions as you may end up with a bootleg.
