Google for "Latvia scam" and you may see.

From an official US State Department government site about Latvia:

Internet crime is a growing concern in Latvia. Common fraudulent schemes involve both Internet auction sites and Internet job search sites. In the first scam, criminals offer valuable items for sale at low prices on Internet auctions and request that payment be sent by wire transfer to a bank in Latvia or though a fraudulent escrow site that they have created themselves. In this scheme the money passes through a bank in Latvia and is quickly withdrawn by ATM or transferred to a bank in another country. It is very difficult in these cases to discover the identities of the account holders or recover the funds.

The second common scam involves identity theft through false job offers. In this scheme, a company claiming to be located in Latvia, but which has a non-existent address, offers the victim employment as a U.S.-based agent or freight forwarder. When the victim responds to the job offer, commonly posted on one of several popular internet job sites, a Social Security number and other identifying information-needed for the identity theft-is required under the guise of conducting a background check.

It ain't the authorized "registrators" I would be worried about.

I'm more concerned about a web site that has no information about who is behind the product, or what it really is doing. To me, that is a red flag: are these students, criminals, hackers, what? Are they a bunch of Russians with a different set of ethics than is the norm in American business? Or just a bunch of inept marketers who stole some product from elsewhere? Or even a legitimate company trying to make a buck with a decent product? No way to tell. Certainly not by downloading an .exe!
