SoftBuy / Not an Adobe Reseller
We purchased Adobe CS5 from SoftBuy. After several attempts to get a reciept, we finally got one (that I could have created in Microsoft Word). I was furnished a serial number. What I found more strange is that in addition to downloading the CS5 file, I also had to download a file called "Adobe Fix". You are supposed to run the Adobe fix file before installing the software. The Adobe Fix file is nothing more than a hackers file trying to break the Adobe CS5 file. Upon a conversation with Adobe, I learned two valuable lessons. 1) SoftBuy is NOT, I repeat NOT, an authorized reseller NOR a certified partner, 2) If the price seems a little low, and you have to fix the file before you install it, go get the real version from the software manufacturer themselves. Don't fall victim to this scam. Luckily we bought this just over a month ago, so we should still be able to dispute the charge on the credit card.
