I constantly receive spam with "too good to be true" prices on high end software. Most likely a by-product of my piracy Web research. However when I visit some of these sites I am impressed with the legitimate look and feel of their on-line stores. I can certainly see an a novice software buyer purchasing from this site and unknowingly pirating software. When I did a whois on this specific example Web site it of course pointed back to China.
