This post could stand to go either here or in an Apple category.
Got an email this AM from 'Apple' claiming to sell Adobe software at outrageously cheap prices (After Effects CS4 for $99?) Beware - THIS IS NOT THE APPLE RETAIL SITE. The url is apple-software.net, NOT apple.com/us. The site clone is pretty convincing, but it's NOT Apple's site.
Upon clicking, the first few seconds were primarily Russian/Eastern European text characters, so clearly there's a reroute going on.
You've been warned. And has anybody else seen this 'commerce' email going around?
(And any suggestions for better categories for this post are welcome).
Mac Pro 2x2.8 QuadCore; 6GB RAM; FCStudio2; Adobe Creative Suite 4 Production Premium
I too received that email at my work address ... I deleted it without clicking anything, but I can attest that it did indeed look pretty authentic from just the cursory glance I gave it.
I'd suggest posting in the FCP forum too since, although the email is offering Adobe software, it seemed to be directed at Mac users, which there are even more of in the FCP forum than here for obvious reasons.
Although it may not get used a lot, it might be worth having a "Community Alerts" forum for posts like this. It's good to see individual members looking out for the rest of the herd. Although I'm not on a Mac, and not quite ready to upgrade to CS4, I certainly appreciate the heads-up. Well done!!
