Is this legit?

I keep seeing ads for Adobe and other software through Facebook. They offer perpetual licenses for all sorts of stuff. For instance, Photoshiop for $40. I was tempted to buy it, but then reconsidered wondering if there was such a thing like a G2A for commercial applications.

 

Thank you in advance.

Absolutely not. These are stolen, and whatever you might consider of the morality, we see a constant flow of questions from people whose "cheap" subscriptions or "perpetual licenses" (there is no such thing) stopped working after days or weeks. Adobe shut them down, and you are left with nothing - except possibly a virus from dodgy unofficial downloads. Buy only from Adobe. Nobody can offer it cheaper.

TSN is right. Always be wary of any site selling software who you've never heard of before...

 

Only go with vendors whose names you already know and trust, as there are a lot of horror stories out there.

 

And be aware that Creative Cloud is never ever offered legitimately with a "perpetual" license... That is a dead giveaway on a counterfeit.
