Freeware Software Con

Like if this guide is helpful
Don't fall victim to the Freeware con on Ebay. Sellers selling all kinds of software (particularly car diagnostic software) for between £5-£10 when the programs are available on the web for free downloading. These sellers will sometimes disguise their con by giving the software made up names. If you see a piece of software that does what you are looking for always ask the seller for the name of the install file (??????.exe). If they are reluctant to tell you or just plain don't reply then it's definitely a freeware con. They are making money of the backs of honest software developers who intended to give their work away for FREE! Ebay are well aware of this con but do nothing about it.
