Windows Keys and GVGMall

Hi,

I recently purchased keys from GVGMall.com for Windows 10 Pro OEM (https://www.gvgmall.com/microsoft-cdkey/microsoft-windows-10-pro-oem-cd-key-global.html) and Office 2016 Pro (https://www.gvgmall.com/microsoft-cdkey/office2016-professional-plus-cd-key-global.html). The way that the key was delivered to me does not look legitimate (screenshot below). I am thinking they resold me a volume license key/MSDNAA key or something similar and marketed as OEM. I then called Microsoft sales and asked them about GVGMall and I do not believe they understood what I was asking (probably wrong department to speak to). I am about to issue a chargeback to my credit card company, but want to see if it is legitimate or not and if not using this to strengthen my case when I issue a chargeback and make everyone aware if this is a scam or not when they search the site.

Thanks in advance!

If you are buying OEM keys for your own use, that contrary to the OEM license terms. Sorry to rain on your parade.

Unfortunately MS makes it almost impossible for users to validate if a vendor is legitimate or not, and totally impossible to validate a product key before actually using it.

The site was registered a year ago. It has an Arizona address, yet the email uses Chinese (?) pictographs.
