Blocked Windows 7 Key, Ebay fraud got the best of me too RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    I purchased a CD key from ebay as well. The company ProCorp claimed they were selling genuine keys. Excerpt from their email:

    "Thank you for purchasing Microsoft Windows 7 Professional License Key.

    As ordered here are your genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Professional License Keys that can be used to activate/install any Microsoft Windows 7 Professional."

    The diagnostic is pasted below.

  • ....it also looks as if there's a hack present in the installation (but I
    wouldn't swear to it) - what disk was used?

  • Hello cargote,

    While there doesn't appear to be an Activation Hack installed, the Product Key is a Blocked MSDN Key.

    HrOnline: 0xC004C4A2 = Blocked Key

    I recommend (if possible) that you return the software/product key for a full refund. 

    Would you also tell us the URL of the Auction or Web Site That you bought this key from?

    Thank you,


    Darin MS

    I was scammed as well. I purchased mine in January, and just found out it is no longer good.. But what makes me mad, is that I contacted MS back in January. I told them I needed to know if the key was real, and if I would have any issues in the future.. They did a search, and said it was valid Retail key, and that I would not have any problems in the future.. Well they were full of BS, and now  my key was blocked, as I did not know it was a MSDN key.. I feel MS is responsible for this mess as is the seller who sold it to me on ebay. I have called the seller and informed him that the money needs to returned or I will turn him in to the local authorities. He has my name address, and said it will come via money order. But if you want his contact infor by all means contact me via email..

    PLEASE don't piggy-back on other peoples' threads!
     
    As to your complaint - all MS can do is report the situation as it is at the
    time of the request. MSDN keys appear in the database as Retail keys, which
    is why they said it's a retail key. At the time of your request, the key had
    not been abused, and was therefore valid - the abuse either occurred after
    your request, or had not been sufficient to trigger its entry onto the
    blocklist.
    You can't expect MS to be clairvoyant - although I agree that having MSDN
    licenses appear as real is confusing, there are valid reasons for doing so.
    You need to report the incident via the proper channels in the Piracy site

    This is a simple case of taking ownership of the issue. The fault doesn't exist at the end user level nor should it end up there. 

    If you are an end-user and indeed unfortunate enough to have purchased a counterfeit version of a Microsoft product the stance that Microsoft will adopt is to advise you to obtain a refund and purchase the product through the appropriate channel partner.

    This does nothing to assist the client nor does it stop these traders. At the risk of sounding blunt - don't state the obvious Sir.

    Having worked for  two MS Gold Partners for many years I question how long I would retain my Microsoft distribution rights to your product if I ignored my responsibilities in the same way.  

    Ownership starts with satisfying the client

    MS - request proof of purchase from the end-user, re-issue them keys and get on with the job of shutting down these sites .Then again maybe you want the customer to do that for you as well


    MS is not 'responsible' for Pirated Keys, or counterfeit software.
     
    Do you see the likes of Ralph Lauren, Adidas, or Nike offering discounts to purchasers of counterfeit products? MS does, and if the counterfeit is good enough, then the opportunity frequently exists to replace the fake with a real one for free.
     
    CAVEAT EMPTOR is the watch-phrase whenever buying pigs in poke - which is what you are doing when you buy software over the internet.

  • Hello Christopher F,

    On an administrative note, posting an identical post into two separate threads is heading down the path of "spamming the forum" especially when the posts do not offer technical assistance to the OP but rather are comments and/or complaints that belong in the Feedback and Comments section of this forum.

  • it's not my habit to post links in forums, but this is something i am very interested in since i have been a victim of false product keys,

    you should read this article on thechnonsense that is quite good when it comes to explain piracy:

     

    winkey-sale.com scam

    it's hard to believe that people can do scams like that
