I heard they are known for selling unofficial non authentic products.

I used to sell a lot on IOffer but only magazines & toys. I do see a lot of bootlegs but as long as you read the descriptions and pay with Paypal, so you're covered in case of a problem, you should be fine.

I bought and sold about 2 dozen times over the years on IOffer. I never had any real problems. Just use Paypal for everything. Lots of boots like everyone says.

I used to buy and sell grey-market movies on Ioffer. I wouldn't worry too much about getting ripped off, in terms of someone taking your money and not sending anything. It never happened to me. Just be aware of what you're buying.

Re: Anyone ever ordered from iOffer?

There are lots of good TV series that have never made it to DVD; or have only been partially issued. iOffer is a place where you can get DVD copies of some of these series. I've ordered a couple and had no problems. And though the quality isn't that of a commercial issue, it's watchable. For me, that's better than nothing. How else am I going to see The Rogues and Special Unit 2? I would prefer proper DVD issues, but that's not an option.

They became the go-to outlet for bootlegs once eBay cracked down. I used it to buy a number of rare CD bootlegs.

I actually have all the episodes of Special Unit 2 that I recorded onto DVD-Ram when I used to fix DVD recorders for JVC. I haven't watched them in years but I remember it being a fun show.

I've bought a lot of DVD-R bootleg TV movies from there that will probably never see the light of day on DVD. I also got "Being Bobby Brown" there recently too. No complaints - happy with all my purchases!
