Hazy on the concept
Today's spam offers to sell me the following software:
Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional
Adobe Photoshop CS 8.0
Adobe Premiere Pro 7.0
Macromedia Director MX 2004
Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004
All programs are full working versions and include serial numbers to install and run. All copy protection has been removed so you don't need to register them. This is the best software deal on the web!
How much? "400 percent discount," they say. Assuming that these packages sell in aggregate for, say, $1500, does this mean they're going to cut the total price by six thousand dollars?
If nothing else, this demonstrates that spammers and people who buy from spammers occupy the same rung on the intelligence ladder, and it's not very damned far off the ground.Posted at 8:20 PM to Scams and Spams
