Sold Licence Already Activated?


I have assisted my friend to choose BD as protection for his laptop. This was in 2011 so he bought BD Total Sec 2011. These days license expired, so he bought Total Sec 2012 license.

PROBLEM: New licence was entered at 2011 version, and system acceped... But instead 365 days it shows that license expires in 291 day. I'm almost sure that serial was activated before he sold license to my friend... Explanation from computer shop guy was that is problem is with 2011 version and that we should install 2012 first, then enter new serial number. So my question is: Did you guys have similar situation? I suspect of fraud in this case but I have to be sure before I go for action.



  • Hello Nera an welcome to the forum,

    Disputed license that expires in 291 days probably was in a package of 3 or more licenses.

    Someone who has sold that license to you were separated them and sold individually.

    When activated first license from one "box" then it will start to expire days from the others, regardless of when they are used in the product.

    Unfortunately, my opinion is that You have been deceived !
