Possible scam?

Jonathan

I got an email one day about "Windows XP Professional for
$50". The link is http://gankia.info/OE017/?
affiliate_id=233913&campaign_id=21002

Are sites like these real? I mean i know OEM products are
cheaper but this seems like possibly a scam. What do you
guys know about things like these?

sites like this are real and will happily take your $50. YOu'll either get a
bootleg copy of WIndows or nothing in return.

In addition to Tumbleweed's comments, the offer was obviously from a "SPAM"
source, what do you think? The order site does not offer an option to use
PayPal and requires personal information over a non-secured web-site. What
seems too good to be true, probably is!!

FWIW, JAX

Paypal hahaha

No court order need to view your records at ebay/paypal. I would be
suspicious if the took paypal (except for donations)

Do you think that this is "too good to be true"? Considering what Windows XP
retails for, 95% of thoughtful individuals would.

They make their money off the other 5%.

Their explanation of the difference between OEM and Retail is wrong for one
thing.

I couldn't find a postal address anywhere (but I didn't look too hard) so no
chance of calling in person to get your refund :)

When the price is too low to believe, don't believe it. It's
guaranteed to be a scam. You will almost certainly get either
nothing at all or a pirated copy.

I always trust spam 100% and have no problem sending spammers my money
or giving them my credit card info.
