Chinese rip off artist that sell clones. But some members buy from them. I don't and won't.

I don't think they have the same copyright rules in China as UK. I would doubt the tricks developers would be getting paid and for that reason I will stick to my local magic shops and internet sites I trust.

I don't think they have any copyright rules. As a matter of fact, the Chinese have elevated copying into a national industry. So sad.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Not only is the owner of the trick not getting payed, but if it breaks or has issues, good luck on getting a replacement or your money back, like most dealers in this country offer (Penguin for example is one of the good guys, Hocus Pocus and so many other legit co.)

Have bought from guys like this in the past.
They send without instructions and it's impossible to communicate with them.

I do not have any idea about this. Just ordered yesterday. I hope they don't cheat me.
I will review it after the order arrives.
Thanks for all your information

If you respect with this art, don't support copies, buy the original......

If only there was a way to tell Miracle. I know Tim Ellis here in Australia had a web portal comparing original tricks with rip offs but not sure it is going anymore. Apart from wishing more regulation best to research and keep your eyes open...

I know Snap Illusion was a scam. My brother had placed an order with them and never got it. I think there was a lawsuit as well.

It may look cheap when you compare the price, but you will have to add high shipping fee.
Most of the tricks are cheap copies, and the seller will send you a dvd with illegal copies of the original video materials.

It can still be interesting for buying some non copyrighted materials (like accessories, silk, balls, etc...) but again look at the shipping price that may be a killer.

For these small items, I'm now waiting to add it with my next order from a legit dealer. Even if they are more expensive, I'm saving on the combined shipping with the main item I'm ordering.

China's copyright laws are similar to the US but unfortunately there is no enforcement.

Do not buy from this place. I have personally seen fellow magicians who couldn't stay away from the "cheap" prices. There is a reason though. When they recieved the items that were DVDs with a gimmick, all of the DVDs were burned coppies that had a photo coppied cover. also no instructions and just poorly made items. some of the dvds didn't even work...

I wanted to try their IET Loops.
$2.20 for a 5 pack.
When I went to Checkout by Paypal, it looked very suspicious.
When they asked for my Paypal password,
It looked like their website, NOT Paypals' website.
I was not about to give them my Paypal username & password.
