    It does not seem legitimate, take this text extract for example:

    You just buy a serial number from them, which is most likely the same for all buyers.

    It looks like they will sell you a serial number. You download the trial version from Adobe and use it to hack the trial. Not legal, IMO.

    You know the rule. If you have to ask, it probably isn't. :)

    Another interesting bit of the webpage

    I have seen sketchier websites before, but this one seems bad too. It is amazing that people will pay for illegal (and likely non-working) copies of software. One site sells autocad educational volume license keys for ~25% of the expected cost. They tell you in the fine print you are buying the paper the key is written on and the key may not necessarily work. That is an awesome profit for the store and quite possibly legal (although obviously very unethical).

    Its sounds like they may be selling the Academic copy which does generally go for around $100. However, if Adobe ever catches you selling prints created through an Academic copy...they will sue you into the ground.

    Unfortunately that site looks poorly put together...so I would say definite fraud alert.
