hmm why so cheap ?

I dont personally need a copy since I already have it, but what is up with this Original Window 7 Ultimate Key (32 bit & 64 bit) Retail - eBay (item 280406805708 end time Oct-17-09 00:42:38 PDT) ? Why so cheap ? and look at the number of "sold". Im guessing this is some scam ? The auctions ended btw. Even if was an oem thats too good to be true price, no?

Microsoft doesn't sell just the keys to thier OS. I've reported this to ebay. If this makes me a bad guy so be it. fabe

it makes you a good guy, being ripped off sucks. The guy made 5K off this give or take.

It could also possibly be copies with technet keys. Either way it can't be legit.

What pisses me off is that ebay will restrict me from selling brand name goods I have around the house to sell when this guy can unload 5k worth of fakes, hilarious.

^^^ I'm amazed that people buy stuff like this without checking feedback first.

Like the saying goes, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is..."

EDIT:

Wait, I just checked the feedback of the buyer in the link posted in the first post and all of his feedback for the sale of these keys is positive.

Probably just some keys he generated off of a keygen. Kinda useless since you can find lists with 10k or more of them online for free.

But still, they should work, even with windows update if the guy found a good list...
