Why I Hate Video Professor

69.95 for 3 lousy cd's!!!

The Godfather Trilogy

The Star Wars Trilogy

Lord of the Rings Trilogy

The only one even approaching this price is the Lord of the Rings
The Motion Picture Trilogy (Special Extended DVD Edition) (and thats with extra footage and a whopping 11+ hours viewing time.

The Video Professor is a typical "Loss Leader" scam. They advertise a free trial for $6.95.

However, this is only if you send back 1 of the three cd's they send, within the first 10 days.

If not, they start sending you more of these packages, every few weeks.

You get the bill for the second one, and by the time you send it back, the next one is already in the mail. Evidently, this is all listed in the 9,000 page document you are forced to accept (you know, the one that usually just spells out the million different ways you can't copy and distribute without the express, written permission of the NFL or some such.)

Anyway, all I know is if I say anything that said $69.95 for this crap, I wouldn't have gone anywhere near it.

Stay away at all costs.

I got to talk to the customer "service" folks and I got the distinct impression they were used to this kind of call. They may have technically covered themselves, and I can't sue them, but you had better believe that Old Man Winters will take EVERY opportunity to tell everyone about the evils of Video Professor and what this scam is all about.

And that is all you need to know.
