Cheap MS licences

Hello Experts,

How come that
http://software-stocks.com/office-2010/microsoft-office-2010-professional-32-bit.html

can deliver the dutch full professional office 2010 version for 40% of the chaepest price in holland   (arond 400 euro) instead of 109 dollar?

Is this really legal?

Delivery of Software purchased in our Store
5.1 The Client will receive an email notification (after a successful order) which contains all the necessary directions on how to get to the download area, how to get software downloaded and get it activated;

Nah, you're likely to get a download of a pirated version with a matching key.

Ignore the customer support page though.  The owner of the website is listed publicly as:

They could also be using a technet subscription to give out your key... it has 10 activations and then its useless... ive seen a few dodgy people use this as a money making scam.

They could also be using student discounts, or a employer program .. either way thats non a supported use.

I would stay clear to be honest, buy from a reputable dealer.

Another scam site using the same template.  View the page source and you can see the links to the other server.
