Fake windows 7 Ultimate from Ebay UK seller RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi

        I  recently purchased a copy of windows 7 Ultimate on Ebay UK which I am pretty sure is fake , the seller refuses to accept that the goods he sold me are fake.

        i have uploaded some photos of the item in question to :

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/cyberbeastie

     and would be gratefull is someone more knowledgeable could take a look.

       The disks are clearly fake and I suspect that the product key is MSDN.

  • Clearly a counterfeit.

     

    The product ID -067- Indicates a not for resale MSDN account. If you are not the account holder and you purchased this in a retail box, the box and it's contents are counterfeit. Demand an immediate refund from the seller

    For more information see this:

    To see how good these counterfeits are becoming, see:

    You will have to purchase a legitimate windows from a legitimate retailer.

    If you are not the MSDN subscriber to whom the product key was issued you need to purchase a full license copy of Windows.  eBay, the Amazon Marketplace, and the discount websites are full of counterfeit copies of Windows 7 that use MSDN product keys.  See the video at

    Yep – no doubt about it.
    Claim your refund and also notify eBay, and PayPal (assuming you used them to pay for the software) – also make out a counterfeit software report with MS, as Carey advised

  • It is a counterfeit box with an MSDN product key.  There is no reliable way to purchase licensed software like Windows 7, Office 2010, or Creative Studio 5 on an auction site or from an individual on the internet.  Stick to the Microsoft Store or Amazon Corp.  All the heavy discounters are selling counterfeits.

  •    I gave the seller the link to this thread , not that it did much good , he has stopped responding to my messages.

       I have completed the online piracy report , and have be requested to send the software to :

    Microsoft PID Centre
    Atrium Building, Block B, Carmen Hall Road
    Sandyford Industrial Estate, Dublin 18
    Ireland.
      Thanks for all your help.

  • The seller may be investigating his source for the bogus software you purchased from him.

  • ....  Carey, I can't use the "Counterfeit Software Report" that you suggest (I tried!) because I did not buy anything, I just got a very suspicious email.  Microsoft seems to have no way to receive such emails from ordinary mortals - I have been looking unsuccessfully for over an hour for a way to send them the email I got.  I need an email address at Microsoft that will let me attach the suspicious email I received, so that Microsoft can decide what to do with it, if anything.  PS - I'm very unused to forums, etc. - if I'm overlooking something, I need to be told!        .....     12/3/2011,  lunch time already!
