I've been receiving online offers to purchase software from a company by this name. They offer "Adobe Photoshop CS2 V 9.0" for $69.95 + $3.95 for handling. Has anyone heard of this company? Is it a scam?

I don't think you can legally download a $800-Software for this price somewhere...

It is most definately "spam". If you tried to DL the program, you would find that it probably infested with spyware and missing key components.
Remeber, there is no such thing as a free lunch.

A lot of it comes from China. It's a BIG business there & I agree with, "you would find that it probably infested with spyware and missing key components."
