What we have here are not scam artists but full fledged racketeers. These people have set up shop in a permanent way. They actually are selling software that THEY intend to support, provide upgrades, and updates for. They are using "manufacturer's" property and just cutting them out of the loop. My opinion is they deserve to have interpol pay them a visit.

I posted on 9/27. That I fell for the scam... but to my amazement, I did get the CD and the Serial# and I happily upgraded to XP Pro... scam or not, it looks like a hit or miss. but I am happy I took a gamble... I know some of you have lost more on a slot machine, so I happy I got a XP for $50.

Could it be that these fine folks who had no problem with oemcd, Inc, may in fact be oemcd, Inc?

I bought Win XP + Office XP for $80 from OEMCD Inc.

Got it in 6 days. All working perfectly. Did virus checks by Norton and AVP, everything is clean. Was worried a bit at first too, when emailed them, they replied within 12 hours.

Good God. I've always wondered who the idiots were that actually order shit via spam.
Now I know.
Everyone of you morons that went to the sites and used your credit cards _deserved_ to be ripped off!
How could you be so stupid as to order from a spammer?
Common sense would tell you that it's pirated software, but you're lacking in that, so I suppose you wouldn't know that.
