Pirate disk, what do I do, any refunds?

I am almost certain 'I have been had'. I ordered a disk through reputable company selling customers unwanted disks. I had to pay by wire transfer. Is there any way I can report this disk and possibly get my money back or even a voucher towards the purchase of new official disk?
Signed,
Dave been done!

Tell us why you thinks you've been had?

towards an official disk - who would want to provide such a thing?

What did you think you were buying, and what did you actually get?

And who did you buy it from?

Dealing with a reputable company. If you think it is a questionable item that you have purchased, then take the matter up with them. If they are,as you have stated, then they should resolve the matter, as an urgency.

Perhaps it's got Office XP written on it in felt tip and you only paid £20.

If you paid well below the going rate, to an unusual vendor, by wire, to a destination dissimilar to the address shown on the web page!

Have you got anything at all?

This Reputable Company.

Were they actually doing the selling or were they acting as middle men.

Did the web site specify what was being sold and did you receive an Order Confirmation specifying what you had bought.

Collect together the facts that you have. They may have a vicarious liability for the actions of those that trade through their site.

no help at all but I am looking foreward to seeing this one being resolved!!

Get your monies worth, tie the disk on a bit of string near the vegtables, it will keep the birds off.

And write one hundred times..." i must not buy bent gear "
