    Have you noticed that the green ticks are back to front? Looks dodgy to me - if it's too good to be true - it probably is.

    Green ticks?

    I'm using an ad blocker, and I can't see what your see, Neil. (or I'm looking over it)

    Upon further review, this site appears to be selling fake Microsoft licenses. Quite amazing since it is listed in Google shopping. WOT has no reviews for this site yet either.

    "If it sounds to good to be true..."

    Just because it claims the keys are legitimate, that does not mean they were obtained via authorized or legal means.

    Something else odd besides the green ticks is it says,
    Besides being sloppy English, last time I checked, "3-Years Free Support" is not the same as "Life-Time Support".

    Maybe that's what the "Nowhere" means! :rolleyes:

    I haven't shopped for a Microsoft product in a good while, so it's a good thing I passed it by here first.

    Looks like Google shopping needs some improvement to weed out the bad guys.

    Thanks, Tony, but with all the high-rises in NYC, I wouldn't be the wiser. :)

    Gotcha, Bill.

    Thanks, Arie.

    I my subsequent research, Microsoft invalidated the licenses of some unsuspecting buyers who are obviously out of their money now.
