NOPE!  That is a 100% scam.

I just checked that sellers page- a lamp for sale is the only legal thing for sale.

Thanks Glenn, especially for protecting my feelings in not being gullible. I’ve not used Photoshop before and am learning to use a mirrorless camera and didn’t want to dive in for the full version. Heard that Elements is a good starter. Thanks again, I wouldn’t even buy a lamp from that guy now (or lady)!
