Microsoft Office Pro fakes

Fake copies of Microsoft Office, operating systems, memory cards and flash drives, fake designer clothing... anything of that nature. At any given time TM offers thousands of fake itmes which breach their terms & conditions... and often do little about the problem. This is the place to discuss the issue.

Tineye shows that photo is stolen from an eBay auction (now removed) - plus he's offsite trading via the Q&A.

TM have removed the luckykevin989 auction - there's another set of fake Office software that will probably migrate to
Sella in the near future.

Office professional 2010
http://www.trademe.co.nz/computers/soft ... 142713.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Purchased this for my son who was doing a graphic design course at ucol this year thinking he would need it but they used some other design software according to him.
Hmm.... if you were going to buy $800 software, you think you would check first that
(a) his son actually required it
(b) that Microsoft office is actually used for graphic design

- Now withdrawn by TradeMe -
Has 3 user codes
not sure what he means by 3 user codes.
Office pro is for 1 user only. if the codes are for 3 users then it is definitely fake.

Your opinion please Googlybear...

Office Pro 2010 - "it is an electronic download."
Is this kosher?

Thats one of those office versions that microsoft markets as a ` Product Key card` (PKC).
inside the case is just the license number and certificate.
There`s no installation CD included, the user downloads the Office install files from microsofts webite and then uses the PKC license to activate it.

it`s on pricespy at
http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=603417" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
ExtremePC $459.01
so the auction price at $450 does not seem too cheap to suggest counterfeit.

there's a handful of of various versions of PKC on TM.

I not sure there is any pirated copies of these around as you would think after downloading the files, the user would not be able to activate it using a non legit license key.
But then again Microsoft`s product activation system is a bit of a joke and full of flaws.

charlie-brown50 has amended her licensng from 3 user to one user / two PCs. And she's added a photo. I'm guessing that this
listing is kosher... Googlybear might be able to confirm that?

Not when the copy has the yellow ingram micro stickers on the case
all software with those stickers mean they are counterfeit.

Ingram Micro is a Importer and distributor who supply retailers and online computer stores such as dick smith and PB Technologies.
They do not sell to the general public and as such do not have an online or retail store.

http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-s ... licas.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
If you see a yellow sticker at the very top which says "Ingram Micro XXXXX##" than its a counterfiet. The reason being is that Ingram Micro does not place these stickers on its packages. Chinese production companies do so to make it look more legitimate.
http://reviews.ebay.co.uk/Counterfeit-M ... 0018066445" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Many Fakes also carry the Yellow "Ingram Micro" Label, however it should be noted that the Ingram Micro labels are also fake and should not be associated with Ingram Micro
The seller also states they have sold previous copies but their FB page does not show this.

neither does the 85% FB and response language
