    Hello:

    I'd like to know if anyone has any experience with purchasing software from OEM downloads. They are selling DW MAC CS4 for $99 which is well below the full version price. Has anyone any opinions on this? They sell there software cheap because :

    1. Why does your software is cheaper then the original software?

    That’s all because we offer only copies of license versions.
    This mean that you will not receive any printed documents (license or instruction) - just files and instruction in notepad’s format, any special packages and will not be able to register this software online. All updates (for most of the software) are available for you. The software that we sell is bought primarily at the auctions and from the companies that have run out of business.

    Did you read what you posted. That is clearly an offshore scam operation.

    Any software not able to be registered with the company who develpos it is pirate. Also the line that says licenses/intructions in notepad format says to me this is pirate and will be coming with .nfo "instructions". These in all likelihood will be no different then the torrent and scene releases.
