Default How can this guy get away with this?

Browsing ebay i found this listing

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Windows-10-P...a/282615534590

How can he sell these without his paypal and ebay being banned? He's sold almost 400 of these, how has he not been caught by VERO?

I sold a few of these back in 2013, my account was suspended not sure what he's doing.

Ebay isn't perfect and often times listings fall through the cracks. I am sure that person has had their fair share of ebay accounts getting VERO'd

We're assuming that these keys are all unlicensed/pirated, right? Does that mean its the same code he's sending to everyone?

To answer the question, it looks like a newish listing. August 20th. I'm assuming they priced it very competitively so it's just been selling like hotcakes. People have probably reported it (or maybe not?), but it does take some time for VERO to review each listing. by the time they take this one down, he'll probably have already cashed in a ton of sales.

That said, I do see some blatant offenders on eBay for replica items that even mention they are replica items, and the listings stay up for ages. I mean months. I have no idea how those sellers get away with that.

A friend of mine a long time ago sold keys for a while.. then Microsoft took him to court since he sold keys he got from shady areas, so let's see how this goes.

Wow, that's scary, how did he get caught? was he selling on ebay? I'm assuming he was using his real info? What ended up happening?

I don't know everything about it. I can ask, but I'm not going to press him into discussing a touchy subject of the past. The only reason he didn't get ****ed was due to him not being of age. He was still very young at the time

Or he got caught. They eventually catch up to you and will remove listings
