    getcheapsoftwares.com legitimate?

    Anyone have any experience with getcheapsoftwares.com? http://www.getcheapsoftwares.com/
    http://www.getcheapsoftwares.com/sea...weaver&x=0&y=0

    Their prices on Adobe software are great, especially if you can deal with a slightly older version. I am just wondering if they are legitimate and if there is some catch or drawback to buying from them.

    Clearly I can't say for sure, but I would highly recommend staying away from this website for a few reasons:

    1. They don't offer a phone number to contact them.
    2. They have used a proxy to register their domain name.
    3. The domain name was just registered in December 2008.
    4. The fact that you asked this question at all means that you had to question the legitimacy of their business. That should be a red flag indicating to you that something's probably wrong.

    If it was my money I'd buy the software from someone who I know is credible.
    TAKE A WALK OUTSIDE YOUR MIND.

    I agree with Hyperbolik, that site is throwing up a lot of red flags. Be careful when buying software online, especially popular programs like Adobe's suite.

    Does not look like a real site. I think it wise to stay away from this site.
