I posted a question and then this person contacted me directly posing as working for Adobe.  I got suspicious after he asked for the serial number.

You’re right. Abobe does not ask for serials like that. Adobe staff here on the fora has a STAFF bedge (like my ACP) badge and they have the Adobe logo near right to the name. I will report the scammer.

What you posted looks like a PM (Private Message) discussion... but without the scammer's ID showing

You need to post the scammer's Adobe ID here for a report to be made

Also, for anyone else reading this, Adobe does NOT use Skype

If someone offers to "help" you via Skype, report them here... with their ID as in message 3 above

Never share your serial number,  Adobe never asks for serial number details. Beware of Scammers
