    I buy what appears to be a genuine Microsoft Ebcarta 2007 Premium.
    But by the coded sticker on the box top, there is this little speil
    "..if the label..appears to have been tampered with, please e-mail
    Microsoft at ..."
    Well it looks like there was some abrasion of the label on the right,
    enough to show the silvery strip.
    So i scan it and send that with the history to the indicated e-mail
    address, and a query if that would affect the rebate.
    That was on Oct 17th.
    *ZERO* response.
    So i go on their website looking for the rebate, and nevermind it
    says "Expired 9/15/07" - the website refuses to recognize it!

    What kind of BS is going on?
    1) does the rebate exist or is it another M$ scam?
    2) do they give a s**t about funny labels?
