Reliability of website

I am trying to purchase a copy of windows XP and found a copy on this site for an affordable price. Furthermore I would like to get this shipped to Pakistan. The website offers free delivery and have made no mention of charges when I queried them. Can someone verify whether this site is reliable and that I can do purchases here without fear of Piracy and Security

It is better NOT to make a deal with them as there is no information for a phone number in the website.

Besides, there should be a suite number in their address below,

1861 West La Habra  Blvd.,
La Habra, CA 90631

Furthermore, doing a WHOIS reverse lookup in http://www.whois.net for the domain name of microharbor.com gives the following information.

The above WHOIS information justs states that the server is just hosted on an eCommerce hosting package from http://www.heritagewebdesign.com/e_commerce.html and it will be difficult to contact the owner of the eCommerce shop in case if there is any problem.

Besides, in term of technology, the eCommerce storefront has not made use of any secured connection when the customers logon to http://microharbor.com/cart/index.php?main_page=login so that the information between the eCommerce and the clinet will not be encrypted and will be capturable.

You can also use the Website security indicators of Google Chrome to view Piracy and Security of a website. For details, please see the link below.

You could always give Microsoft a call and let them know about the site - they might be able to give you some advice.  Realistically though it would be difficult to sell the full product at that advertised price without making a loss.
