Cheap OEM software scam

What is OEM software? It's original equipment manufacturer (OEM) software. Great, but why would I care?, you may ask. The answers is simple. Because you may get a spam message in your mailbox about cheap OEM software. Spammers' definition of OEM software is different. They say that you can legally buy 100% fully working retail version of any software available today and that you don't have to pay that much for the fancy box and manuals. That's why it's so cheap. That would be great if it were true. Unfortunately, OEM software can not be resold. Here's an example of the fake online OEM software store: allsoftwaredirect.com. Let's take a look. It looks like they resell nearly all popular software available today. Adobe Photoshop CS2 V 9.0 cough my eye. Let's say I want to buy it. Guess what? I'm lucky because it costs only $69.95 and I will save $529.05. Don't fall victim to this scam. If you have purchased such fake OEM software, please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Good luck and be safe online!
