    There is no way to be absolutely sure. But typically if you want something from someone you typically have to pay for it before they send it, nothing mysterious about the concept that you call an "advance". The only thing you have to be careful about is that since it's material on a DVD you really don't have any way to know the quality as when buying a book. I'd look to make sure they are not a new member that has history on these forums, I guess that's the best you can to.

    The dvd most likely contains illegally reproduced materials that break copyright laws. The sale of such dvds here is not permitted.
