To Whume this may consern:
(1)I have received this email saying that I had downloaded this program from there web sight and had not payed for it. I may have downloaded it,but not at anytime was it said to me that I had to pay for it. I thought it was a free trial. I still ended up getting ride of it any way. Now I got this email saying that I took it unlawfully and they are going to press charges if I don't pay for it. What can I do? I have never have had this happen to me before. If I had known that I need to pay for it, then I would have.
Not only that,but most of all the Download programs have a free trile period,and at that time you then would half to pay for the full version if you decided to keep it. So.....Can you help me? There was another person that this had happen to:
