Online piracy: Microsoft software help

Bob Shop does not tolerate or encourage the listing of counterfeit software. However, with an average of 850 000 products listed on the site at any given time, manually checking the authenticity of each and every product is an insurmountable task. Both Bob Shop and Microsoft encourage customers who are looking to purchase Microsoft Windows or Office products online, to contact and they will advise on whether the product has the potential of being non-genuine.

Please also refer to for more information.

A very common indication for the possibility of non-genuine Microsoft Windows and Office products is that if the price of the product seems too good to be true, then there is a high potential for the product to be non-genuine.
