Is click here
a scam or does it get around rules due to selling from a certain country or other?

It sells £300 OEM music software at £20 each, for example, yet does not state clearly if the software comes with the key to use software fully (from the site "Read HOW_TO_INSTALL.TXT or INSTALL.TXT or SERIAL.TXT.").

A USA site designed probably for the USA market.
Software may not be valid in UK!

hmmmmlol.. did a bit more searching...

either located in city road, london (if there is one) and/or russia. most of the software can be bought off the original manufacturers website at 10x the price. id doubt thered b any compatibility probs with uk pcs, that is, if you ever got the software from the cheap store.

i was just surprised how far up the list it was with "cheap megastore" into google (third) so this russian/londoner must be making a fortune. :O

did another search and what popped up was a page in a business forum which had me editing a post describing how great ellsworthband.com was, and I didnt have to login (have never even registered!)

Don't know if this is a scam, probably is. Won't touch it with barge pole. However, City Road does exists. It just off Angel Tube in Islington, London
