I already own LW 9.6 and upgraded to CORE but, this sounds too good to be true!

Terms & Conditions:

2.3. You cannot register the software with the manufacturer. All updates are available for all the products;

So yes, it is a scam indeed. Considering that they apparently have an address in NY I do wonder why they're still around though...

Cheers,

Well, since they also "sell" Adobe, MS, Autodesk "products" I really do wonder how they manage to pull it off.

Cheers,

and it certainly is.
Adobe prices are also "fantastic"

I get loads of spam emails from sites like this "selling" software, they are all warez sites set up to look quite real and legit. It's all stuff taken from Pirate Bay and the like, avoid like the plague.

even if you did get working software do you want these folks to have your credit card number - I think not.

Best deal for Lightwave was right before CORE started and one could pick up LW for $495 under the competitive software deal.

seems bogus its direct DL so more than likely there selling hacked zip with a dongle crack to get it working. I personally got mine as a gift for Christmas a few years back that was purchased from videoguys.com with cd and dongle, at the student price. best gift I ever got. I never seen it anywhere else besides Newtek that sells it too u as direct download.

... I think this is hot warez stuff
you can get stuff like this for free with torrent-software! It is easy to use, and there are many people going this criminal way for owning software


You can get anything via torrent , and I mean anything .
you think I do this stuff for fun .

the blue text is seconds left to scan .

I'm not scanning for torrents , that's easy you use a torrent search engine for that , Im scanning for the source ! well more accurate the person .
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ pays well and I can work from home ,most of the time ! Avilable for HIRE :devil:

I can also tell you how much cash your lossing !
There's 2 way you can go ! be a cracker or be the person too crack the cracker , which is much more fun ! and sometimes better paid .
I remember when every one went crazy for napstar at the start , I remember torrents before torrents " IRC CHAT CHANNELS with ftP " .
Kazza made a big impact so did LimeWire ,you might have well just said "I'll download that virus ,thank you " trust (we) wrote and embedded most of them ! , if you work for MS or IBM you will know this ! :rock:

---------------not just a pretty face :D

If you really want to find a deal, it's usually on video apps or stuff bundled with hardware. It's how I got Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere, Sound Booth and Encore. I thought the deal was too good to be true, I got the box and it was OEM software with the hardware. The only 3D apps I ever saw bundled with anything was Painter 3D, and that was a loooooong time ago. Although I see Shape and a few others here.
