What are your thoughts on this site please?

Dodgy? Ok, and too good to be true?

Your opinions would be welcomed as a friend sent it to me as a link last week.

Thanks.

Where does it say that?

If they are a UK based site, why are all their prices in $. Does "We get programs before they are officially released!" mean they sell you pirated software?

mmmm - I wouldn't touch them with a 10ft pole!

At those prices I struggle to believe it's legitimate... AutoCAD 2004 is worth approx £3000, this site is selling it for $57.95!

"We get programs before they are officially released!"

ALL stores get goods before they are offically released. Woolworths gets DVDs 3 or 4 days before release but can't sell them.

I've been getting an email advertsising this place. Echo AcidBurn7uk. I wouldn't touch them. I bet Adobe would though.

Hmmm,

As I thought then really!

A wide birth as they say!

Cheers,

They aren't listed in Companies House, they are based in " United Kingdom, Europe" a very odd way of putting it, prices are not quoted in UK currency and the all prices have what can only be called a credibility gap. I think AcidBurn7uks 10 ft pole is a bit too short.

They wouldn't be listed unless a limited company. Many small businesses call themselves companys wrongly. Address and local telephone number are provided. Agree about the prices though!

They have a Store address in Milton Keynes, anyone out there who could check out the store
