After posting on this forum for help with Photoshop CS 3, I received 3 private messages from someone with the username John Dennis. 

 

The message said:

"

You can Directly send Email to our Adobe Customer Care Team Email Address:-
AdobeHelpLine24x7@outlook.com and they will help you via Email.

Curious to see what this was which I figured it was a scam, after sending an email got this reply:
