    Not legit, as the CS5 Master Collection costs much more.
    They just want you to sell pirated software, it is more like a scam.

    It's a very well designed SCAM. If you look at the logos like VeriSign, you will see it's just a picture. Real VeriSign is a link to VeriSign. Anyone who buys from these scammers deserves to lose their money.

    Read the store blurbs; it's not even very good English, another sign of a scammer.

    i don't think that if someone gets scammed that its ok for the scammers to separate an unknowing individual from his money. it's like saying some whose house got emptied by robbers deserve to lose their money because they didn't secure the house right.

    Another way to spot a scam: Never trust a site that was just created a couple weeks ago:

    Very,Very smart point. i'll keep that in mind. but what if a site has been scamming people for a longer period of time? i.e the site is older than 2 weeks (or maybe months)

    If a site is less than a year old, I'm suspicious. If it's been around for a while, you can usually Google or MRoogle and find posts about experiences with that site. You can also Google, using the site name and the word "scam" to see what, if anything, comes up.

    Yeah I googled this because it just looked too good to be true and it brought me here. Haven't posted in awhile on this forum, but hello all.
