Purchasing Photoshop?

I'm looking for Photoshop CS3 or 4 and have spotted this site:

http://www.gaintsoft.com/adobe-photoshop-c-6.html

They claim that the software is authentic.

Has anyone experience of this (or similar) company?

Jim

Looks VERY dodgey to me, Personally I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. Or if you're more optimistic give Adobe a call before putting anything into their site to check them out.

Their CS3 and 4 prices are certainly cheap, they say they only accept Paypal, are you covered if you pay through Paypal, I'm not sure. Certainly tempting though.

Their prices are low, they only accept PayPal, they are too far away for you to realistically enforce your rights. It's hardly rocket science...
