Avoiding pirate software

Like if this guide is helpful

How can you be sure that you are buying genuine software?  There is a potential scam involving a seller with a limited but apparently good track record, advertising genuine software, several available, "buy it now" at a bargain price.  The buyers realise after a week to a fortnight that they have been sold pirated or unlicenced software and take action, but by that time many people have paid up and the seller has disappeared with the money.

Be on your gaurd if you see these features:

  • several of the same product on offer
  • "buy it now"
  • price the fraction of the normal retail price.... too good to be true
  • seller has limited history
