    Hello I want to download a movie documentary, but it takes me to a website called Usenet.nl and it wants my information. Should I trust it? The title of the documentary is
    Superhuman - Missy Elliott And Busta Rhymes - A Behind the scenes take on Hip Hop, the videos and the creative genius of Hype Williams

    Hello and welcome to TSG!!

    When you say "but it takes me to a website", what is "it"? What takes you to a website? It sounds like this is likely a pirated version of the movie, possibly in Dutch, or at least subtitled in Dutch. Usenet.nl sounds like a site in the Netherlands and Usenet is typically what you'll find on newsgroups.
    What kind of information are they requesting?

    It does sound like the link you found is to a non-legitmate site. Since it's a movie/show that is for purchase on DVD, you should go to a reputable website like Amazon to purchase it. Any 'free movie links' are most likely using pirated sources, which can also have nasty virus/malware attached to them.

    It does look like an unauthorized source to get around the region restriction which is something we do not support.

    I don’t remember, but Usenet.nl asked me for my credit card information that I don’t even have.
