This morning I got e-mail and almost fall for it. memorial Day sale 80% off really tempting prices. Everything looks like original even looks like redirecting through adobe page, but once you start to pay attention to URLs it’s clear that this is huge robbery. This is the fake website: http://adobe-retailer.com/ And here are the real sale 10% off: http://www.adobe.com/ Warn your friends!

haha :D

Download Price     $429.90
Original Price    $2599.00
You Save            $2169.10

No need for warning, 80% discount means it is not original.

Hopefully, but since I’m in market for AE CS5 I almost fall for it. Besides it looks so real.

That’s one of those warez sites where you pay for a warez version.

Pay to get spyware and viruses (or is that viri?), not my idea of fun…

^ It is a McAfee secure site! :P

Lets see how long it takes for adobe to close that domain! One major reason is they are using Adobe brand name for domain :D

The fake web auto-translates some UI elements to spanish (which I have set as my preferred language), while adobe.com still gives me the english version. It also auto-detected my OS.

Kinda sad that the scam site is almost better than the original :D
