Hi All.

I'm talking mainly to our polish co-forumers, as the site I am referring to is a polish one, but any useful hint will be welcome.

I found Windows 8.1 Pro licenses at as low as 15 euros (20 USD), without any media: the site is relatively well known in Europe among gamers, but the asked price seems way low to me.

My main concerns are whether it's a scam, or not, and whether that's legal, or not. Obviously as far as you know.

Link to the current offers:



Thanks in advance for any help.

a quick google search for "g2a.com window 8 scam" finds they are illegally reselling MSDN licenses that are either already expired or tend to deactivate after 30 days.
