    Don't beat yourself up Margaret --- You started the thread with the question --- "too good to be true"

    Spam 99.9% of the time should be questioned and is not legit.
    Good thread and as always
    "if the deal seems too good to be true" --- chances are it's a bad deal.

    Margret,

    Actually, I glad that you posted the url, it brings to the surface what some people will do to rip a ligit person/business off and the discussion of this thread on this site may have saved someone here some grief.

    Thanks Doug. I was remiss in not getting rid of the URL (or for posting it in the first place)

    Take care, Margaret

    I removed the URL because it is almost certainly a pirate operation. I also sent the address into [email protected] which is their official email address for forwarding these things.

    Not $50, but definitely Legit...

    I found Doug Nelson's thread,
    here
    , tried the Adobe Elements > PS7 upgrade offer,
    here
    , and 10 minutes ago received my new copy of PS7 direct from Adobe for $313, including shippping I bought Elements at Costco, so you don't have to be a Microtek customer.

    Peace,
    Sanaka

    If their address is indicitave of their IP address then they are located in Latin America or somewhere in the Caribbean. Good point Danny made about waiting for PS8. Even if it is a little more money, you're better off dealing with a known merchant, like Amazon.

    It's good that you brought this up, Margaret, because most people run into these types of 'opportunities' all the time.

    Photoshop 7 for $50? Smells fishy to me. It should to anyone.

    Besides, with Photoshop 8 around the corner, I'd hold out for the PS8 upgrade which will probably retail for about $139. With PS7, Amazon.com (and possibly other sites) offered a $50 rebate dropping retail to $89 + S/H. I wouldn't be surprised if there were similar deals for PS8 when it comes out (rumored to be) by the end of the year.

    Yikes!! I just had a vision of entering all the information and submitting the form only to discover that I had been transported to a porn site complete with monthly CC billing for "services rendered"




    Sorry I brought this up,

    I did a search on Google web sites and news groups, the speculation is that they are out of Russia and the software is pirated. Sure would like to know for sure.

    I was wondering if it was a cheap way to grab credit card numbers and info for mailing lists for spam etc.

    Hi,

    I wonder if this is legal software and not something that has been pirated.

    PhotoShop 7 for 50 bucks??

    Is this too good to be true. I got this "offer" in email. I can't take advantage of it because it's only the PC version, but some of you might be interested.


    Take care, Margaret

    Ads in commercial software
    by Doug Nelson
    I'd like to get some opinions. I recently installed a commercial software app (not shareware) that periodically (a couple of times a week or more) will pop up a window within its workspace promoting other things to buy from that same vendor. It's not big, probably only about 10% of the workspace, and...
