Buyers Beware

by Erin on March 13th, 2009 in Lavasoft Products, Security Alerts.

A word of caution to all of you online shoppers browsing the Web for the best buys: if it looks too good to be true, it just may be.

We’ve recently come across a website that is misrepresenting itself as a Lavasoft affiliate, and selling copies of our Ad-Aware Pro software that are not legitimate or supported by our company.

Many details about this site, shown below, do not add up – two of the main ones being that the site is selling an outdated (2008) version of our software and is claiming that Ad-Aware Pro’s retail price is $119.90 (when in reality it’s $39.95).


Still, those not familiar with the correct pricing and product information might easily fall for this genuine-looking “deal”.  It’s another reminder to always buy directly from the source or from a legitimate reseller; a little research – plus exercising some caution – can go a long way in keeping you from falling for a ploy.  If you are suspicious of a Lavasoft product purchase, you can always double check that the sale is through one of our legitimate resellers or affiliates by contacting sales@lavasoft.com.
