Are these photoshop deals to good to be true?

Question

Are the special deals on software programs (ie: Adobe Photo and MS Office XP) from e-mail offered at $44.95 for real or a scam?

Is this one of those," if its too good to be true, then it probably is?"

I've not seen this issue addressed by you on your show, newsletter or writtings.

This question was answered on October 21, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

I’d say it is just a cover-up All they want you to do is click on the link that’s there and it is usually a virus or a trojan horse and as soon as you click on it, your computer is infected and you may not even notice it And also it may be one of those deals where you give them your credit card information and they send you nothing They just take that info and may use it for their own use I would say to you to not even open up e-mail like that It is a very dangerous thing to do Hope that helps!
