I smell a scam

As much as I would like this this set I can't believe this many people really think they're getting it.

It's OOP and has been for some time.

Places like this should be out of business.

How do they get away with it ?

I've had luck with Bestprices.com in the past (although I haven't used them in a long time) and with the recent re-appearance of a ton of Sid and Nancy CC DVDs, you never know....

Looks to me like just an old not-updated inventory item.

Not a scam, unless they charge your credit card before they ship.

I have had good experiences with bestprices.com/ uln.com (same place) in the past.

I wouldn't worry about a "scam", but whether they actually get them is another question.

Then again, if you get tin #151,000................

Nope - hate to burst your bubble but these guys are on the up and up. I've bought dozens and dozens of DVDs from these guys and every one's been legit. This is probably just a old database entry or something.

Get away with what? Did they steal your money or something? At worst, it's an erroneous listing.

People are much to quick to cry "scam" with nothing to back it up.
