They have phone sales, and e-mail tech support. There is no mailing address or corporate identity displayed. They say their download servers are in the US and Europe, but don't claim to be located there themselves. Their FAQ also mentions that their e-mail is often classified as junk by Yahoo and MSN. Kinda strange for a Microsoft Gold Partner. Hmmm. Looking closer, you find that their webserver's IP address is in Maylasia. Their domain is registered to a Chinese firm (Hong Kong, to be specific) that has an e-mail server but no website. They farm out their e-mail server operations to another company in Xiamen City, China, whose admin contact is an employee of China Telecom. I also noticed that their domain was first registered on May 18th of this year, even though they claim to have been in business since 2003. I googled for independent reviews and found nothing (in english). Please let us know if you get burned or not, so there'll be at least one review. HTH, Phil Turmel -- Need to contact me offlist? Drop -webdev or you probably won't get through.
