    I'm trialing Kaspersky Internet Security and really like it so far. I found this link to purchase for a great price and want to know if this site is legitmate.

    It looks dodgy to me. I think I would do some real investigating of this site before I purchased anything from them. Even the Kaspersky name is blurry.

    hmm.. I've never seen this before, not sure if i'd trust them. The site is hosted by Hostgator :shifty: the only way to contact them is through email...

    Thanks for your replies. It looked suspicious to me, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

    Re: kASPERSKYSALES.OM

    I wouldn't trust them

    The company was incorporated about 2 months ago in the UK and they take payment thru paypal, not the normal "affiliate" way which goes through the official estore. We discussed this on the KL forum about 2 weeks ago and came to the conclusion it is safer to buy either via the estore or an authorised retailer/reseller.

    By the way, if you were with another AV before kaspersky, you can take advantage of this offer:

    www.kaspersky.com/switch


    and if you are in the UK, send me a PM or google for it and you will find a voucher for 50% for a limited period :)

    Jas, did they give you an activation code or a keyfile? if it's latter problem is not if it's working now but until when it lasts... i mean until it gets blacklisted if it's illegal.

    Re: Kasperskysales.om

    convert your code into a keyfile at https://activation.kaspersky.com, open it in notepad and see which branch of KL issued it. According to the registration data for that company it should be KL UK.

    Well if it is a dodgy key, will most likely mention China somewhere...

    Well, I took the chance and bought it, it's working fine for now, BUT it is from China somewhere....maybe It'll get blacklisted, I don't know?! Even if it's cheap and you wont lose that much money, if it's get BL'ed, I would still say to the rest of you...STAY AWAY!

    I won't be surprised if I see your post saying that your key is blacklisted.

    Re: Kasperskysales.om

    I don't like the switch option that much. The normal license can be used on at least two pc's. But the switch license only works on one machine, Kaspersky told me....

    I looked at the link that first poster posted and came out at e-junkie.com as the company that offers this all. Googling made clear (?) that e-junkie is legitimate...

    Well the website WHOIS comes up with " UK MEGA GROUP LIMITED"

    Doing a quick search on them shows they were incorporated 11/03/2008 so they are a very new business with pretty much no track record so far.

    AFAIK ejunkie is just an e-cart...nothing more, nothing less. They do not actually sell the licenses.

    And I'm the legal heir to the Russian Czars.;) :D Lets see what EliteKiller finds out. Just because a web site states something doesn't make it so.

    Re: Kasperskysales.om

    i know someone who bought from them and also recieved an actual email with their user name and password directly from kaspersky for their tech stuff.. it said it was active and had their info in the email. they have also checked online in their "tech area" with the user name and password and everything seemed to check out. the lic code was under their name and imo that seems like it would be legit then.. no way if they registered it under their own name it could be a blacklisted keyo_O??
