I just found this website a couple days ago: www.[removed].com and I saw they are offering some interesting discounts, see the home page and the Tell A Friend page (?!). Anyway, my question is: is this a scam? I would really like to buy Wintasks for THAT price but I’m afraid it will actually cost more.

Thanks,
Joe

Thanks, but the regular price is $49.95. If i buy through downloads32.com I apparently get the same package for $34.97. I would like to get the discount if it's for real... Any other opinions? Thanks again.

The discount is only $15. There are lots of discount sites around, so it may be a real one. Otherwise a scam would advertise something like 70% of original price. But for $15, if in doubt, I would still buy directly from the developers.

Mostly because it was hyperlinked. We don't want Google juice flowing to some sites. Apart from that, what about your common sense?

Common sense in this case is knowing that it could be a URL drop or a legitimate question. You know we are very strict about URL drops in the forum, so I took it out from the first hyperlinked  post, but left the non-hyperlinked versions later.

It's up to you to decide if this is a good enough offer, and visit the site to check, but by entering the URL on your browser not through a link. It's up to me to discourage URL drops.

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. It's definitely not a URL drop; I just thought no one could help without seeing what's all about.
