Default AnimeCast on eBay, do sell legit OSTs?

Has anyone purchased anything from AnimeCast on eBay? Their game soundtrack prices are awfully cheap compared to other places, most at a 50% difference, and I'm trying to find: what's the catch?

Are all the CDs that they sell bootleg copies and isn't selling such copies prohibited on eBay? Some buyers gave them negative feedback because of that, which you can verify using www.toolhaus.org and entering "animecast" in their search engine.

They are definitely bootlegs, probably all of them. There's a distinct lack of a publisher or a catalog number on most of them, but you can see one here:

Compare the Obi to the legitimate one:

Ebay has proven that it doesn't care about bootlegs as long as the original publisher doesn't file a complaint.

AnimeCast is one of the most infamous sellers of pirated game and anime music CDs on eBay. You should definitely stay away from them.

Thanks for the warning. I will definitely stay away. I highly doubt they're from the US anyway, as one buyer of theirs from the US had complained about receiving a package internationally. Also, they have over 80,000 positive feedback from buyers who are none the wiser, thinking they have the real deal. What they're doing is so wrong.

Even a store called "Tokyo Japanese Lifestyle" had bootleg cd's

AnimeCast seems to be gone from eBay. Probably made a new account. Or he's gone and won't be missed?
