Has anyone ever heard of a company called BuysUSA? They've got 7.0 for about $50.00. Does anyone know if the company is legit?

Well the site says its an OEM disk. This means it was bundled with some hardware item at some time. So it could be a legitimate CD. But Adobe will not support an OEM copy and you may have a problem if you try to upgrade it. Buysusa is also allied with banneddata.com which formerly would allow you to download the software directly. the Buysusa site says that you can get the software from banneddata if they can't ship it. So lets see, does that mean you order, they say they're out of stock, then they refer you to banned data to download it, then you find that banneddata.com won't let you and now you try to get your money back from this Canadian company. Also note, that if they do ship it they mention custom charges and shipping charges. How much will these be?
When a price looks too good to be true, there is usually some catch somewhere.
Keep in mind that some of these kinds of sites, are just there to collect credit card numbers and other personal information. Buy at your own risk.
Cheers,

Actually this is to good to be true. For one the company publishes a book that shows you how to, for example "How to get anonymous Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards that you can use at over 850,000 ATM machines worldwide and 3 million retailers". And the location and multiple websites that they use, is also very suspicious. If you went to network solutions and clicked on whois and typed in the company url, it says its located in Washington state. But look further and you see that the company name that registered the name is ENOM INC in lakeland florida. But, if you go to ENOM website you see that they have 3 locations, none in florida, to receive personal checks and payments. And they are a hosting service for international IDN's, so I doubt it very seriously that this is real.
If you actually buy this software and you actually get it, its a 90% chance you getting a pirated copy. I say this because I found another company that said the exact same sales pitch. It was located in the ukraine.

Good luck

Thank you for the feedback. I thought it was too good to be true.
