Windoze Scams

Someone in the office forwarded this email to myself and the IT Manager here, asking "Is it correct" and wanting to purchase it for someone in our office in China. Now, not only is this ridiculous because its an obvious scam, but there are laws around exporting software to China. Of course, this is also the same guy who wonders why he keeps getting 200 spam emails in his inbox every day. Well... Let me think about that :-D
