Question about a DVD site

In my quest for finding a site that sells DVDs at wholesale prices, I stumbled upon a site called Do not defeat the forum censor!(Had to write it like that because everytime I preview my post it says spam.com)

I was wondering if anyone has bought DVDs from this site. Also want to know if its legit. I emailed the owner. Here's the messages:

Q: To whom it may concern,
I noticed that Star Wars Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith is available on your site for $8.00 How is this possible? The DVD is scheduled to be released this November. Is that DVD a bootleg or is it a normal DVD like the ones you can get a Walmart?

A: Hi,friend,of course yes,our dvds are all factory sealed,100% quality,the dvds has a hard sleeves,many friends from USA,UK,CA,AUSTRALIA go to our website to buy dvds,all dvds can be played well

Q: Where is the company located?

A: Our company in HONGKONG

My gut instincts are telling me to shy away from this website. Am I right in thinking that way?

The fact that the site's name is altered when posted on the forum certainly sends up a red flag don't you agree?

I didn't even read all of your post before starting to reply. Now that I've looked over the Q & A I think you'd be better off if you just flushed a wad of cash down the crapper.

If it's it's too good to be true......it is ( a bootleg ).

Looks like some jerkstore selling scene releases of the film on dvdrs maybe with shitty artwork and maybe with shitty pressed discs. Avoid download the free releases yourself for free.

Just how much intelligence is required to know that if someone is selling something the rightful owners have not yet released for sale, then they are selling something illegal ....
