A couple of, er, red flags for RFDers:

1. From Shipping Information[QUOTE]Shipping is through Express Mail Service (EMS) then delivered by Canada Post WWW.CANADAPOST.COM. Ships direct from the factory new in the box... The parcel is sent by STANDARD FLAT SHIPPING by EMS... We currently ship to the Canada[/QUOTE]

2. From Contact Us all there is there is a form and e-mail address. There's no mailing address, phone number, etc.

3. WHOIS information is hidden behind the domain registrar.

Conclusion:
2. and 3. suggests to me that they don't want you to know who they are and where they're located.
1. and especially the use of EMS suggests they're shipping from China. That also explains why they have stuff that's not yet available in Canada.

Good luck.

I think you answered your own question. If they are selling items that aren't yet released, they aren't on the up and up.

there is absolutely no way anything on that site is real. Do you actually think you can get anything like this @ 80% off? I was just browsing and came across this

http://canadasentertainmentshop.com/?es ... cts_id=620

Saw 1-6 boxset, says DVD collection, but the case which looks like a steelbook says BLU RAY and perfect high def all over it...

If I were you I wouldn't trust that site to either send anything or take my cc/paypal info...

I'm strongly tempted by this West Wing box set price: http://canadasentertainmentshop.com/ind ... cts_id=337

http://canadasentertainmentshop.com/chi ... dvd-boxset

1. A set like that would never exist. Disney stands to make a lot more by selling their classics separately.
2. Felix The Cat Saves Christmas is not even Disney.
3. As far as I know Magic English is a Disney product for people overseas to learn basic English.

That is just picking apart one of the more obvious bootlegs/fakes. Can find problems with almost all listings on the site.

I ordered a DVD boxset from the subject website. I never received the shipment of DVDs. The website help communication stalled me until they got outside of the 45 day limit for PayPal disputes. After that time they simply ignored me. I would recommend EXTREME CAUTION in ordering from this site.

These are bootleg or fake. I ordered a set of TV DVD's from a similar site. I got them but most of the shows were just downloaded off torrents and burned onto DVD's. You can tell as some of the shows had the TV station logo flash every now and again.
