This is my 3rd time I have had to chat because I get hung up on over the phone. 
Over 8 years ago I purchased the Adobe Photoshop CS6 extended, as a student, here in 2020 because I don't want a creative cloud or a new subscription they are extorting me to buy it.......
and they refuse to give me a number to corporate....

Hi! Thank you for contacting Adobe Genuine.
Please share your email address so that I can fetch the details for you.
 
according to the other person there is no email
you MF PPL keep saying my Photoshop CS6 i purchased in 2012 is fake and im a victom of fraud
4:18 PM
Nitin
 

 

Please share your email address so that I can fetch the details for you.
 
when i purchased this that was the email bmcfall@students.nic.edu, the only other emails i have are <emails removed for privacy reasons>
 
Nitin
 

 

While I’m looking this up the information, do you happen to remember where you purchased your Adobe product from?
 
yes
North Idaho Community College back in 2012
 
Nitin
 

 

Please share the serial number so that I can check it
 
the only SN i can find is the one when i go into the help section in my photoshop Serial number: 92628319249219177910
 
Nitin
 

 

After analysis, it appears that the serial number access has been shut off for the product. it shows that the serial number is non-Genuine, we do not have any records of this serial key.
The reseller is not listed under the Adobe partners portal, which means that the reseller is and was not an authorized reseller of Adobe. I can suggest our website which is http://adobedealreg.force.com/PartnerSearch?lang=en in order to learn more about the details of the authorized re-sellers of adobe that we have in the market, globally.
The seller you’ve provided is unfortunately, not an authorized reseller. Although most unauthorized resellers abide by the licensing policies, there have been many cases where some intentionally mislead customers into believing they’re purchasing genuine products for their intended use.
Common thread exists among users who purchase Adobe products with modest discounts from non-authorized resellers on Amazon MarketPlace, Best Buy Marketplace and other similar sites, like eBay or Craigslist. Users, in these cases, believe they’re purchasing from Amazon or Best Buy (who are Authorized Adobe Resellers), but are instead buying from third parties who post products through Marketplace avenues or classified ads on these sites.
 
are you ***ing kidding me I HAVE THE ****ING DISC
I PURCHASED THIS BACK IN 2012
IT WAS WAY BEFOR YOU PPL STARTED TO DO THIS SUBSCRIPTION S**T
Nitin
 

 

It is unfortunately easy to purchase non-genuine or counterfeit software. Counterfeiters frequently make very good reproductions of our products. For example, third-party online marketplaces often carry non-genuine or counterfeit software. Any time a customer purchases outside approved channels (directly from Adobe or an authorized reseller), it is likely that the software is not genuine.
Counterfeits are designed to fool the buyer. Many use packaging, logos, holograms, etc. that look genuine and can easily trick the customer. Customers might state “It is real" but I am sorry to inform that it is the serial number which has to be genuine.
4:25 PM
WHAT PART OF I HAVE THE DISC AND PURCHASED THIS FROM A COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY WHEN I WAS IN SCHOOL
YOU THINK THEY WILL SELL A COUNTERFIT PHOTOSHOP?
4:27 PM
Nitin
 

 

This serial number license was intended to be used by education students and staff only, if it is not used as intended then it is violating the Adobe End User License Agreement.
 
I purchased it while i was in school I have my degree now
your trying to say because im not a student i can not use the program i purchased
 
Nitin
 

 

Is there any particular application which you use?
 
photoshop cs6 extended addition that i purchased in 2012
and this S**T  keeps poping up Why is Adobe messaging me?

The service is part of our ongoing efforts to inform and protect individuals who have unknowingly acquired non-genuine Adobe software.

Replace your non-genuine Adobe software today.

The one which you have will not work anymore. The best I can do for you is I can offer you Creative Cloud Photography plan for $9.99/month excluding taxes that will give you access to three applications (Photoshop, Lightroom and Adobe Bridge) on 2 machines one at a time and that too multiple platforms. You can use it either on mac or windows. You will get the cloud storage of 20 GB so that you can store the data on cloud as it is more safe and the best advantage of subscription model is there is no
extra cost for updates and upgrades so you can always use the latest version of all the software's.
Adobe photography plans offer the perfect solutions for editing, organizing, storing, and sharing images for anyone interested in photography? from photo enthusiasts to professionals.
Most of our applications still work the same way they always have, on your local computer, using local storage, if that’s what you prefer. Sometimes people get confused that they will be required to use the cloud, but that is not the case.
We would recommend you not to miss this offer and at least give it a try as we have a 14-day cash back policy so if you do not want to continue with the subscription then you may return it within 14 days of purchase and get fully refunded.
In additional we will provide you one-month free subscription for the second month as a good will gesture.
 
NO! I PAID OVER $200 for my Photoshop cs6 light room camera raw and bride
im not paying a ****ing subscription this is extortion and it is agent the law

actually, the converstations you showed display extraordinary patience on the part of adobe reps.    bottomline:  you bought a counterfeit product that may have worked in previous years but doesn't work now because adobe finally detected the counterfeit serial number.  so yes, you may have been cheated, but you weren't cheated by adobe.
