Question Has anyone here purchased anything from this website?http://www.buysusa.com/ If you have, is this legitimate software. It say's on the website that you can not register for tech support, but it is new software that was supposed to be bundled for a computer. I would like to hear any user's experiences.
Thanks Smile

If it was supposed to be bundled with hardware (like Microsoft's stuff, which is why you buy and IDE cable with Windows when you get it off of eBay), then this sale violates Adobe's ToS or EULA or whatever contract it is and should be an illegal sale. You could also email them about this and ask what their take on the legality of sale is.

I couldn't really find any reseller information about buyusa.com, so I don't know. Someone claims on these forums here that they purchased legit software, but I would stay away from them. If you're a student, try to find a student version somewhere. If not, I guess you can risk it.

Be warned though, under BuysUSA.com's ToS you CANNOT cancel the charge through your credit card. You agree to this when you purchase, so if you're unhappy and they won't refund, technically you're screwed.

That's kinda what I figured. It just amazes me at how many people out there are ready to rob you blind! I couldn't imagine trying to purposely deceive people like that! If only their were a shock stick that you could use over the internet! Wink

If only...I think we should invent something that causes a computers PSU to overload, creating a large Tesla effect that would actually shock whoever's using the computer. The problem is people don't normally sit in front of servers, Sad.
