Buying Affordable Software -- Where?

Canada

I've often received spam emails that are offering affordable software at below the retail prices. They are sometimes offering 50%-80% below retail prices for software such as MS Office or Macromedia products. I am always wondering if their products are legal. If yes, where do you usually buy such software?

I would be very careful - not long ago I heard of people doing this, selling name brand software really cheap - they were copies and some had virus' attached...

Thanks byfaithonly. Yes, I also think that they were copies. That's why I would like to know if someone ever purchased such things. Some of those spammer mentioned that their software was OEM products. Do you think so? I am doubtful about it.

I've been trying to remember where I read or heard about that - there was a big talk about it... Basically I look at it this way no reputable company is going to send spam email so that's a tip off right there. Next, if it's 'cheap' there is most likely a problem. I'm struggling right now with 'free stuff' just sloppy knock-offs of the real thing from what I can see...

Yes, you can login to http://stonytony.hereweb.com They're selling legal software and live help service available. Operator will help you out if it's online. But if not, just email them to ask what software you want to purchase, they will reply you the price and the info of the software, easy procedure. Good luck!
