I’m not a native English speaker. Sorry for some wording that might be confusing.
As a subscriber of adobe creative cloud, I am often amazed by the sophistication and efficiency of SaaS. It costs dollars per year, but I think it's well worth it.
However, I noticed that some unauthorized people are selling a subscription service called Adobe Creative Cloud Pro Edition for a very cheap price — about 50 or 60 bucks per year. This subscription service is fully functional and impressively powerful.
These sellers claim to be Adobe's privileged resellers, so out of caution, I checked Adobe's official website for specifics of the service. What I've found confusing is that access to the service is usually priced thousands of dollars per year as a team subscription, but many similar businesses are selling these licenses at incredibly low prices.
This makes absolutely no sense. Even I tried asking one of the sellers, he said he made about $40 each order. So actually they might be getting the team subscription from Adobe in some fraudulent way without paying for them. I've seen some people who bought the services asking apprehensively if there will be an after-sales service, and all they get are ambiguous responses.
Buying such a team subscription service of unknown origin hurts Adobe's interests and hurts innocent, uninformed consumers. To prevent more people from being deceived, I hope Adobe can take some measures.
I think this kind of fraud has started to be used for profit by some people with intentions. Below are the names of these scam teams I have collected from a Chinese e-commerce platform named "Taobao" and will continue to report back to adobe if I find more. You could search "creative cloud" on Taobao to find what I post is totally true.

I have attached pictures as proof from the comments of victims who purchased the unidentified team subscriptions sold by these fraudulent sellers. Hope it helps.
