    I bought a DVD through Amazon.com from you on Nov. 13. It was shipped quickly out and all seemed fine…until I opened the clear plastic pocket recently to actually do the DC Home Workout (CD and Book). The CD has a deep crack across the disc on both sides of the center circle. My DVD would not even begin to spin. I am hoping this is not a common event for people doing business with YOU. I thought I would contact you before writing a poor review for Amazon.com about you. I believe in giving you the opportunity to satisfy this customer and be sure that this does not happen to other trusting customers. It this item had been a Christmas gift for another, I would have been VERY DISAPPOINTED!

      Hi Sandy! I’m not sure what led you to my blog, but be assured, I have no idea what DVD you speak of. This is my résumé website, for I am a lowly designer and technical writer and have nothing to do with DVD sales. My guess is that you were led here by Google search of another company name, yes? Perhaps, associated with Amazon?

      If so, you have unfortunately been the victim of a scam. A certain vendor has been filtering traffic through my website and there’s not a lot I can do about it. I’ve been dealing with this anomaly for the past month and you aren’t the first dissatisfied customer I’ve seen come my way. There isn’t anything I can do for you. If you would like to discuss it further, please email me at daniel.brian@gmail.com

      Thanks.
