    Swish 2 for $20? Is this website illegal?

    Has anyone ever made a purchase through [Link removed by Dead Rabbit] ?
    Is this a legal business?
    They offer Swish 2 for $19.99 (download version)!

    Do you think, I can order the software from removed.com?

    Seems extremely questionable. Their contact emails are based off aol and yahoo accounts. They do not any sort of terms&conditions statement nor a copyright statement. Strange.

    It is illegal

    Anyone buying from there is most likely paying for a crack. But cracks usually don't work and cannot be updated and there is no support for cracked versions. Or maybe they sell yo uthe trial version and hten after the trial is up you suddenly don't have a program that works. That's if you even get anything after paying your money anyway.

    Since Roger feels it's not legal, I removed the link.

    Thanks for the heads up!
    While changing my profile, I accidentally clicked the link that said
    "Add 'Dead Rabbit' to your Ignore List"
    so now I can't talk to myself anymore...

    Shady Dude, steer clear of the site

    A couple of things Guys. Dead Rabbit moderated the link out, but left the name in there (removed.com). Second thing is, his name is ******* and he is a scam artist from way back. You picked it in one Roger when you said he is selling cracked versions, but the worst part is that they actually work ....... a mate of mine got one 5 months ago and it's still going strong (albeit he can't get any upgrades from your Site). Mine is legal, and I swear by it, and any one who uses ***** site (my mate included!) to save a few lousy bucks on a programme as good and as cheap as Swish is, deserves to be slapped for cutting corners anyway. Then again, if you knew my friends, you'd slap them all anyway ....LOL ;-)

    Peace.

    I think all that needs to be said has been said.

    Flashkit is not interpol niether is swishzone.

    Rather then stirring up a debate over cracks
    and suspects
    Which never comes to resolution I'll simply
    close this thread.

    As for the domain name in question it has been
    logged and a simple whois trace should identify ownership.
