I now know of two people who have paid to download Open Office. There is a 
company that that pops up in google searchs and looks official. It charges 
$29.88 to download OpenOffice. The name that appears on your credit card 
statement is mbcontact.com.

A google search indicates that many people have been caught.

It does bug me that people think they are supporting Open Source when in fact 
they are just giving money to some con artist.
