I'm quite suspicious about this web site as I cannot find their address or phone number anywhere. The "About Us" option says nothing about them, other than how great they are.

Can anyone confirm what I suspect?

Unsafe and suspicious Nov 11, 2005

I share yuor concerns about the legitimacy of their "downloads".


Extracted from their FAQs page:


Why is the software so inexpensive?

We offer the software for downloading only, it means that you do not receive a fancy package, a printed manual and license that actually aggregate the largest part of the retail price. In this situation we are restricted in selling the products for private purposes only!


So, no license!??, on the basis that they sell for "private" purposes only... a novel concept on selling commercial products... I just wonder if the makers agree on their interpretation...


Moreover, on another level, I would not trust my credit card details to an unknown and unidentified vendor such as this.
If they show no details, I don't show them the color of my credit card. End of the story.

bye
Gianfranco

Funny, but scary too... Nov 11, 2005

This is the most professionally looking pirated software site I've ever seen... I bet some would fall for this.

They state that the manufacturers cannot provide support for the software - no wonder, they do not know that it is being sold

Very very interesting.. Nov 11, 2005

I founded that they use "Money Transfer Job Scams" to CLEAN the money earned with selling piracy software. The same "Jungle Ventures inc" it's involved in one scam described here:

http://www.joewein.de/sw/fraud-job-2005-11.htm



Money Transfer Job Scams: November 2005

No legitimate company will use bank accounts of private individuals for processing payments from its customers. No legitimate business will pay 5% and more for international money transfers (for example, $250 out of $5000), when banks provide such services for only $30-50 per transaction and businesses and individuals can set up their own bank accounts in other countries if needed. No legitimate company uses private individuals to receive parcels and remail them.
Job offers on the internet such as the ones listed here involve stolen money and stolen goods. If you participate in these scams, even without criminal intent, you could be held liable and face criminal charges.

I don’t understand ... Nov 11, 2005

I don’t understand why some of those who are criminally inclined are willing to pay megaoemsoftware for what they could obtain for free on Kazaa.
