That's a load of crap, I can't believe M$ and retailers would try to pull off something like that. As if I didn't hate them enough already. At least it seems that you can get your money back though, and I hope to god that lawsuit smacks those companies in the face. Well, I don't use Windows and I build my own PC so I guess I'm safe from this attack (or am I? )

I'm half though the article but a question popped into my mind: How did MS get your credit card number/account number to bill you? Don't tell me, you just gave it to MS - I wouldn't even give MS my most hated enemy, that's just to cruel
Other than that: Why Microsoft has to resort to scams like that, I don't know >_<

Except that Tritium lives on the Netherlands, and i don't believe there's a Best Buy there.

My point is that wherever he bought the computer he probably used a credit card so the company probably just passed the billing information on to Microsoft as required by their contract. It doesn't have to have been a Best Buy that he gave his credit card number to.

Are you sure? What about MS Software? Did you pay that in cash as well or in virtual money (read: downloaded )?
