Safe to buy authenticating Windows DVD from ebay?

Copper Contributor

I recently came across little white or red envelopes containing product keys that cost around $40 from ebay. Is there any way to verify their authenticity and legitimacy.

No. Some of them are pirate keys and will be deactivated in future.
Don't buy anything that too cheap. There are other ways to activate Windows 10, such as OEM keys.
They are many scammers on eBay! Be careful
You can go with a digital license bought from Microsoft.
If you see any license being offered at unbelievable or far reduced price, that's scam for sure. If you want genuine license, buy directly from Microsoft online or offline Microsoft Store.
Don't trust it. I bought one and the license was expired after three months.
In fact, you can activate Windows 11 with a single command.
