    The age old saying

    Well if it looks like spam, smells like spam and tastes like spam it probably is spam

    Would well apply in this case

    And keeping in mind that a court ruled someone could get away with selling software that actually doesn't do anything, I'd say YUP scam!

    I also got an email on it.

    truthfully, it's probably nothing that is not already known, and that you can't get for free. I've noticed that people/companies have started taking freeware that you can easily download and selling it!

    I think QVC were doing that a while ago with some HTML editor (1st page 2000, I think) and a bunch of clipart galleries (woo-hoo :rolleyes: )
