If they are gone for good it is surprising they lasted that long

Re: Anyone ever ordered from iOffer?

WASHINGTON, March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition (IACC) and its partners from the payment industry have disrupted the sale of dangerous counterfeits sold on iOffer. The popular online marketplace temporarily shut down its website after the partners took steps to stop payment processing on the site.

iOffer has been a tremendous point of frustration for brands and the IP community. Counterfeit goods were easily found across the site, putting well intentioned shoppers at risk of buying fake goods. Based in San Francisco, CA, iOffer boasts having more than 100 million items and millions of daily users on its site.

"iOffer advertises itself as an online marketplace where you can buy and sell 'practically anything.' Unfortunately, 'anything' includes inferior and harmful fakes such as electronics, batteries, sneakers, jewelry and handbags, to name a few," said IACC President Bob Barchiesi. "We hope iOffer will take this opportunity to protect their customers by building systems and processes to mitigate against fakes on their site.

So IACC basically has shut them down, I read that Amazon Pay has also suspended anyone selling anything on there whether legit or illegal items so I guess guilty by association.

Ioffer is the new Napster. When Napster went legit nobody cared about them anymore.

But you can bypass Amazon and Best Buy and go to Ioffer and buy the Mr. Poppers Penguins Blu-ray/DVD Combo for $33.99

Nobody is going to buy stuff from these retards below with their ridiculous prices

These listings will stay on their site forever and Ioffer will collect no sales or closing fees

Itís interesting that the same problems exist on eBay. But nobody bothers eBay. They must have better terms and conditions.

Ebay is more active when it comes to removing boots from their site.

There's s few sellers on eBay that have been selling bootleg flicks for years but others have been given the boot I guess it depends on what titles they're selling that gets them caught and kicked out. The strange thing was iOffer did seem to prevent people from selling the AIP films that Susan Hart owns but yet those movies are still widely available (bootlegs of course) on eBay.

It's nuts to see only of handful of movies on there and most appear to be from the same seller requesting outrageous amount for them when they can be had cheap elsewhere. The unreleased film listings (aka bootlegs) still haven't shown up so I'm guessing they might be gone for good!

Entertainment industries are slowly but surely targeting the providers that offer or host bootlegs. Discogs the music site blocked the selling of bootlegs after receiving legal pressure. Which was a shame because unlike movies, a ton of music content will never get legally released or even made available.

It's a fun site to see how many rare things are put up there even though most of them aren't exactly legal copies. That would be a shame if the site is finished.
It looks like this site has stopped selling cdr's & dvdr's. Too bad, you could find a hugh variety of HTF shows at a very reasonable price from some very honest & friendly sellers. What b.s., now back to the cut throat sellers on ebay who seem to have no problem selling cdr's or dvdr's for outrageous $$ compared to this once go to site.

It looks like that seller is gone too. Maybe he had boots too but he did a good job making them look authentic and charge crazy prices or he just gave up.

Some really old TV shows and movies but I doubt you will see people selling Euphoria for $10 or the shows that are popular in 2019.

Isn't that the point? I.e. being able to find version of things that were never released?

You'll be able to buy new stuff on Amazon, anyway.

Yes but before 2019 it was filled with people selling new shows for less than retail value and wrestling and concert dvds.

Ah. I hadn't ordered from them for a while, so I hadn't seen that. I guess that was the catalyst to the changes in the site.

Full of low quality, compressed-to-hell bootleg garbage. 5th generation or worse VHS to DVD-R drivel.

Looks like it's up now. I want the full 61 episodes of the series Masterminds. If the quality is a little off, I don't mind, I like listening to it when I'm hitting the sack! So as long as the audio is good, I'm cool,

I've seen some interesting things on there like the complete Animated Spider-Man series from the 90s on Blu-ray.
