I purchased a box set of 3 seasons of Boardwalk Empire from DVDSEA and received what appears to be a bootlegged copy. The package was shipped from China and the box it came in which has pictures of the HBO and Boardwalk Empire logo is filled with misspellings (for example A TLANTIC CITY instead of ATLANTIC CITY) - my first clue.
Upon opening the box I see that each DVD is in a PINK protective sleeve and the inside of the box is decorative gold paper with a flower pattern on it - not what one would expect from HBO. The DVD's are of poor quality, the legal statement at the opening of each DVD (telling you not to copy or distribute) is blurry and the show itself has a 'flat' quality to the video - definitely not a High Definition image as was the aired television show.
Monetary Loss: $50.
