    Spam? The reputable sellers are still selling for $140 for the OEM version.

    Mmm, the fact that it is categorized in the "Operation Systems" category also seems suspicious. :eek:

    If you do a "whois" on their domain, you'll find that they're based in Russia.

    Too cheap to be legit for most items. E.g. I've never even seen an OEM version of Photoshop CS2.

    Their FAQ actually refers to the fact that you might not be able to register your product online, though they claim you will be able to download updates.

    I haven't been able to find any mention of anyone actually buying from them, with positive or negative experience. But, seems to fall under the too good to be true category.

    I like this:

    "We do guarantee that all oem programs are the 100% full working retail versions - no demos or academic versions!"

    So all the OEM versions are actually full retail..? Something doesn't add up!

    lmao :D

    "We accepts Mastercard and Visa" :D
