    This is my first post so forgive me if it comes out wrong.

    For $69 I bought dreamweaver mx 2004 from a site claiming to sell oem software and of course (stupid me) it turned out to be a fake. The disk arrived (complete with serial number printed on the disk) - but I can't register the serial number on Adobe's site (surprise).

    What should I do? I want to report it but how? Does anyone have experience of this kind of scam?

    Bummer. Sorry to hear about that.

    This is the right website for the UK and Ireland. Click on the link for illegal software sales. I don't think it'll help get your money back, but it will shut down the company who ripped you off.

    Thanks for that, It was just what I was looking for.

    By the way the site is:


    Have a look - but don't be stupid like me and be tempted to buy anything:eek:

    Have you tried Aptana?

    Link: http://www.aptana.com/

    It's a dreamweaver clone that runs on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Pretty slick, real world alternative.

    That really depends on how you define "clone".
