Hello,

Those who have seen the CS3 deal with CEX will know I bought a copy and tried to register it with Adobe - they said its not on their records. I just exchanged it for a second copy and am having similar problems.

The thing is - I cant find any pictures online of what a genuine copy is supposed to look like (a bit like Microsoft do). Does anyone have a copy and can post pic (with the numbers blotted out obviously) so I can check in future if it is real? Ir what to look for? My copy is unbelievably genuine looking!


Adobe just said "well, you should only buy from us and we dont sell CS3 anymore - so it will cost you £540 for a licence"... hmmm...
Thanks.

Friend had this problem. He had to buy a new one - some very good cloned software out there. How much was CS3 from CEX?

I mean good cloned software as in it is hard to tell the difference. Not sure that a picture of a box would help. Its only when you register that you find you have been duped!

Crikey. They're taking a big risk if they're knocking out hookey software!

I know - I did take it back today and swapped it for another, Have yet to successfully get it registgerd.

Thing is - I only traded items in for exchange to get that. I dont want to have £175 of exchange vouchers for CEX - I have no use for them! So will be fighting for a cash refund or threaten them to the piracy police.

They said they can trace the person who sold it to them. Wonder if they will bother. Guess they will for £175!
