Anyone ever heard or or done business with this site? http://oemsoftworld.net/

They claim to sell full versions of some our favorite software.
The catch is they sell the software as a download only, no packaging.
They claim the license code is included as part of the download unless otherwise noted.

A Google search didn't turn up anything negative or positive about them.

Anyone here know anything about this site?

Thanks

The first and second points pretty much indicate you're on your on.

Another note of interest is when you click the "About" page, it lists their address as a building on Mansell Blvd in Alpharetta, GA. My brother lives in Alpharetta and I know that building. The picture shows no signage on the building. Unless the building owners have removed it in the past few months, the signs have been photoshopped out. That's clearly a red flag. They probably rent maybe two rooms - one for servers and one where two or three dudes sit around going "cha ching" and giving each other high fives.

I sent an email inquiring about the validity of their software

Good Day,

"Does your version come with a valid license key? "
Surely, yes. We are selling legal software only.

Thank you for your interest in the Software Store. I hope this information has been helpful.

The whole site smells wrong. I sent this email late at night.
It's either a canned response or He's based offshore.
Either way It's not an option.

I'll get by with free software for now.

Interestingly they have taken the trouble to conceal their real identity, by using an outfit in Florida that conceals the real domain owner:

Domain Name: OEMSOFTWORLD.NET
Registrar: MONIKER

Registrant [3507941]:

They are not just pirates, they are charging quite a lot too. Scam.
