I made a mistake today so dont all fire off advice on where I went wrong but I would like help on the answer to this question below
I saw an Ad on Ebay today - from a seller with an E bay shop. I bought software having seen a programme box in the advert - expecting it to be posted.
I failed to see at very bottom of ad next to free postage that nothing would be posted and all Id get was a link!
Well that came by email and it worked - but I suspect its illegal.The vendor will not (and Ive aksed him since) give me proof he owns the key to validate - but it works
Ive written to the piracy link on the co. software website to see if they are interested
My question is this - the link I was given was click here - does anyone know where this links goes and how - is it some sort of illegal link? No page comes up but the software is there in small box on screen to be downloaded
I guarantee it will be illegal. If the seller is selling legitimate software then it will certainly be provable as such as he would have a licence to sell it through them. Can you tell us the name of said program that you purchased and from who. That will help us in proving that it is illegal for you to file with paypal.
Its acdseepro8 - Ive registered it with the code given - on line - and it works ok. Ive not heard back from acdsee yet. If this man says he has a licence to sell the only people who can say he is definitely lying are the software copyright owners?
I am inclcined to raise with ebay/paypal but where will that get me? Nowhere I think.
Should I forget? Its not the money thats the issue - the man may be a cheat as he is also selling other links I now see.
