Buying software online

Posted on November 29, 2015 at 10:20 pm

When buying software online, you do need to be really careful that you know exactly what you are buying as many people do get stung. Many auction sites allow software to be listed without really checking if it is legitimate. If the price of the software looks too good to be true, then it probably is.

A friend of mine recently brought what he believed to be a genuine version of Windows 8. He was sent a product key to use after payment and was given a link to the download screen. At first everything seemed fine and all was working correctly but he soon realised that what he had was in fact only a trial version and therefore set to expire in 60 days.

It is very hard to try and get your money back from these types of sales, especially as often you do not have anything physical to show for it.
