Staying Away From Cheap Software Will Save You More Money in the Long Run

Aug 19, 2008
There are so many software companies popping up on the internet these days, but who can you really trust? You should always remember that if something sounds too good to be true than it probably is. What I mean by this is we all get the various emails saying "We offer the cheapest software deals", so you find it quite interesting and decide to visit the site in question. Your surprised to see that the prices they stated in the emails are true, but is this the moment the actual scam starts? Well lets take a look.

A few of the if its too good to be true warnings are as follows, firstly if they are offering lower prices that most of the reputable online retailers then there must be something dodgy, you have to think to yourself if they can do it why cant the big online retailers? Secondly if they do not supply you with a full registration number for your product, this could be one of the biggest giveaways as most products these days would require a code of some sort. They may be trying to sell you a cracked or nulled version of a piece of software. Finally you should beware if they do not supply readmes or manuals with the product, any suitable software company would have no problem supplying this sort of information.

If you are still thinking to yourself, well I am just going to buy the software as I wont be losing much its just so cheap, then you would probably be making one of the worst decisions of your life. There are a lot of reasons why people sell cheap software and most of them are bad, we will take a look at a few. Firstly is quite a big one whereas if you are entering your bank or credit card details you are potentially handing this over to a fraudster, who will probably end up emptying your bank account. Next you should beware of nulled or hacked software as this can also potentially contain viruses or spy ware which can collect all of your personal details. And finally if the software is illegal you could end up being prosecuted or fined large amounts.

So to save yourself from all of the aggravation that cheap software can bring, you should always stick to buying from reputable firms that have been around for a while and stay away from companies which have only been formed for a few months.
