Was i scammed for windows 7 online purchase?

a website named http://www.win741.com advertised selling windows 7 for $30 to students. Okay, so I purchased 2 copies -- windows 7 home premium for $30, and windows 7 professional for $13. The windows 7 DVD's was to come through mail. It NEVER came through mail. I paid them on November 1st.

Okay, so I purchased 2 copies -- windows 7 home premium for $30, and windows 7 professional for $13.

The windows 7 DVD's was to come through mail. It NEVER came through mail. I paid them on November 1st. I emailed them 3 to 4 times asking why DVD has not arrived. They said they shipped it. I argued that if they shipped, why I did not get it.

They told me to wait. I emailed again on november 20, why I didn't get the win 7 DVD and they told me to wait more. Then I emailed them December 1st (now its been 1 whole month since i paid and still didn't get the win 7 dvd), and they said that I lack patience and i should just keep waiting.

Now it is december 10th, and i again contacted them saying its been 40 days since I made the payment and have yet to receive the DVD (this is now probably the 4th or 5th time I'm asking) and their answer was the same --- to wait for few more days.

So i tried to find their phone number but could not locate it. I finally emailed them to provide me some tracking number or give me another explanation besides "to wait for it" and i got no reply.
Update: the university said there is no such discount and the price is same for students and non-students. they said they have never heard of such deal
