Microsoft Office 2007 / suspicious scam company

This company advertises as a sponsored link on amazon selling cheaply priced software. They at first look quite legitimate but BEWARE!! I have purchased software only to discover that they will take your money and not deliver you the merchandise. You can try contacting them by phone or email but they never answer to any contact between you and the buyer. I have found out later (through searches) that I am not the only one who has experienced this problem. I find it also find it a BIG SHAME that Amazon lists this horrible company on their website as a sponsored link - ALL FOR THE SAKE OF MONEY and not protecting the buyer. So BEWARE of EGGSOFTWARE !!!

    I have been caught too - the money has been debited from my credit card and no goos have been received. I tried to access the MY Account section in the eggsoftware website but IE informs me the security certificate has been revoked

    This is exactly what has happened to me. Goods ordered on April 13 2008, nothing delivered, no response to phone calls, can't even raise the website anymore. Fraud investigation initiated.

    Yes, I got caught too but not from Amazon. It was a sponsored link on google when i typed 'office 2007'.
    I phoned trading standards and they said to send a recorded mail letter to the company demanding the goods or your money back, i demanded my money back.

    I have checked with the royal mail to see if anyone had signed for my letter but no one has and the letter is been sent back to me.

    I am going to phone trading standards again to see what (if anything) can now be done.

    Apparently this guy has had many sites and just opens a new one when others are shut down.

    I have also had problems with the Office 2007 software that I purchased from them.

    We buy in good faith and then find that there are problems with the software or they just don't deliver.

    Surely this is something that Trading Standards and Microsoft Corp. should be involved in resolving?

    In my experience, Microsoft is simply NOT interested in chasing up cases of piracy of it's own software.

    When I tried to report a case of a seller selling illegal copies of Microsoft Office 2007 they passed me over from one department to the next.

    That's why these repeat scammers keep coming back because they know no legal action will be taken against them.

    Here's the typical "computer generated" email that you can expect to receive from Microsoft when you want to report a website selling illegal Microsoft software. Notice the lack of interest in the 3rd party seller and how they turn this into a marketing opportunity by referring you onto an authorized reseller:



    Dear Sir/Madam,



    Thank you for your email about the authenticity of Microsoft® Office Professional 2007 software sold on the third party website.



    Unfortunately, we will not be able to comment on the software sold on the third party websites. However, we sell our products through network of authorized resellers. For more information on our authorized resellers please visit;

    Also, I forgot to mention that this is who "EggSoftware.com" really is or was: Princell Software Ltd and as you can see they have even registered themselves as a Microsoft Software Partner!

    Microsoft Office 2007 - charge on account
    United States

    I have been trying very unsuccessfuly to resolve this issue for about 30 days or more. I purchased Microsft office 2007 and did the download on line but when I went to use it or try it out it asked me for a Key. I did have a Key that the website gave me but it never worked. After several failed attemps to get in touch with this DRISTUDENTOFFICEUS Which is the name or charge from Company on my credit card. I cannot figure out how to get some attention in this matter.Please advise me as to what to do next. Thank you in advance for your time in this .
