I recently bought Quickbooks from these folk and I called Quickbooks to register and they said it was counterfeit. When I approached the above company about this they gave me some mumbo jumbo stating that I am supposed to call them for support. I then asked for my money back since this is an ILLEGAL copy and they said that they will not give it back in so many words. Very bad company and please do not do business with them.

CheapestSoftwareAnywhere= 100% SCAM

AUTHOR: r.l.m - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, January 07, 2010

All those people that say the product is real and works great must work for the company and are all liars. This is a 100% total scam if it wasn't why would they tell you not to register, activate, or update the product they sent  you and why would you have to call them for customer support they are not the people who wrote the program just some jackass who sold it. LIES LIES LIES

OEM is a cop out!

AUTHOR: scott - (United States of America)

POSTED: Wednesday, December 30, 2009

To those toting CSA's party line of OEM software, I was lured in by the low price.  I bought FIlemaker Pro 9 for Mac.  Entered the registration and got an email from Filemaker stating it was a known pirated serial number.  I asked them about the OEM copy, and they stated very clearly that there is no OEM version of Filemaker.  


The other warning sign to me is the fact that he doesn't even send you anything but a copied CD with Sharpie handwriting on the label.  Nice work from his other company Jay's Designs I suppose.

Cheapest Software Anywhere is a fraud.

AUTHOR: bblackmoor - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, September 03, 2009

Cheapest Software Anywhere is a fraud. The software they sell is the exact same unlicensed and illegally copied software you can download from torrents. The instructions you receive are the exact same instructions you get when you download unlicensed and illegally copied software from torrents. The serial numbers that Cheapest Software Anywhere tells you to use are the exact same serial numbers you get when you download unlicensed and illegally copied software from torrents.

Cheapest Software Anywhere is one of the most blatant frauds on the internet. The software they sell is NOT legal, it is NOT legitimate, it is NOT licensed, and nearly every word on their web site is a lie.

They also go around and post "recommendations" on forums like this one, pretending to be "satisfied customers". These, too, are a lie.

CSA = Best Investment!

AUTHOR: Scottyb - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, February 27, 2009

I think the software for my iMac is the best investment I've made in a long time. I am very impressed to say the least ... I'm sure I have gotten many times more in return than I have spent. All you need is good instincts and a listener with common sense! Their help support via emails have been a tremendous helpful and QUICK. Will greatly recommend them to many friends. Thanks for the amazing package and all the best, CSA!

BS and shills

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Bull! Gee, look at the "march of the shills!" LOL!

Adobe Acrobat Professional for only $59.99?

I don't think so. I don't believe this website is an authorized Adobe reseller which means the consumer will NOT get any support from Adobe.

IMO, this is just another website to stay away from for the following reasons:

NOT an authorized reseller.
NO mailing address
No telephone number
Domain registration is hidden through a domain proxy service.

Let this statement from their own website guide consumers:

''Should I call the Manufacturer if I'm having problems or you?

Please do not contact the manufacturer for install issues, we provide the support for all install problems. Also if you need to register the software do it thru the program itself after it is installed, do not register thru the internet or phone as the product you just purchased is OEM and must be registered thru the software. If you have any other problems, let us know and if we feel it necessary we will refer you to the manufacturer, since we sold you the software, we are your source of contact-not the manufacturer, Thanks!!''

Enough said.

P.S. I own a computer services company and many times I must downgrade the OS from Vista to XP Pro for my enterprise customers. OEM software is loaded and a DIFFERENT KEY is issued for EACH customer account. Anything else is bootleg and will not be supported by the authoring software company. (Can you say "royalty?")

No Problems with cheapestsoftwareanywhere.com

AUTHOR: Dave G. - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Monday, February 23, 2009

I personally have made several purchases from cheapestsoftwareanywhere.com. All have been handled in an expeditious manner and professionally. I have received exactly what I was looking for at incredible prices.
I had a minor problem with the download of the software for a CD/DVD burning program but the young lady at the website helped me and we had it going in no time. I wasn't putting some of the required information in correctly.

If you need computer software at a great price - this is the place!

Awesome Company!

AUTHOR: Pamela Reed - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Sunday, February 22, 2009

I have purchased from Cheapest Software Anywhere and am EXCEPTIONALLY pleased. All registrations are good and software works great. To all you skeptics out there...

Do you think that buying used software on eBay is illegal? Why not? Because when you sell the software you fill out a form that transfers registration! Duh. I am sure this is one of the ways that CSA is able to offer software so reasonably. And come on, if they were doing this illegally don't you think by now the feds would have gotten involved? Sometimes something that seems too good to be true is really just GOOD!!!!

BTW. Shipping and customer service is EXCELLENT! I will be purchasing more software soon!
Thanks CSA for providing the buying public with value and honesty!

Never had a problem

AUTHOR: Ciavyn - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, February 21, 2009

I've ordered software from this company, and never had a problem. Their prices are what we all think software should be priced at, and I received support immediately when I had a question. Everything registered on my computers, and worked fine. I will purchase from them again, and for the price, I encourage you to take a chance.

Cheapest Software Anywhere woks for me.

AUTHOR: Doc - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, February 21, 2009

As a small business owner it was crazy expensive to stay up-to-date with all the new software. But not anymore! Cheapest Software Anywhere is keeping me on the cutting edge with great products, service and above all value. All the products I have bought to date have been perfect. Anyone not buying from Cheapest Software Anywhere is burning his or her money in my opinion.

Sometimes a good thing really is a good thing!

AUTHOR: Shawn - (South Korea)

POSTED: Saturday, February 21, 2009

So I go to work last Thursday morning and my Canadian friend Julio says to me look at this! He pulled up this trite report about some guy in Texas who wasn't satisfied with his product. Look, I'll say this to anyone who needs software to make a living, Go to cheapestsoftwareanywhere.com and buy with confidence. I was leery too so I bought an inexpensive product just to see if it was for real. It arrived in short order and was exactly as they described. Is it fancy? Are there multicolor bells and whistles boxes? No. Is the software exactly what they say it is? Yes!

OK so they deliver as they promise on the website, but my situation is that I work in 3rd world country where you can't just hop in your Toyota and go buy a copy of the software you need to teach English with. So the people at cheapestsoftwareanywhere said, "Yes, we do international shipping." For five bucks they ship vastly discounted software right to my cranky postman. The other big box retailer? Nope.

And as to the support issue, I really can't figure this one out. Why would this guy complain when he is getting support in the USA instead of Mubai or New Delhi? In closing I can only say this, I have bought seven different products. They were all as advertised. I had one support issue. It was dealt with in about 30 minutes. I ask the gentleman in Texas and anybody else who wants to know, why would my credit card company after five months allow this to go on if it were illegal? Also as to the legitamacy of the software, they call home! They update! They work! Sometimes a good thing really is a good thing!

Not A bad Company

AUTHOR: Drewcrewof2 - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, February 21, 2009

I have purchased software from this company - Vista O.S., and had problems getting the stuff registered. The owner (I guess) Jammie responded INSTANTLY, like the same day, investigated the problem and found he had been scammed by one of his resources. What did he do?, INSTANT refund... so go figure... Other stuff I got later did work ok. You do have to understand what it is you are buying here and "deal" with the issues it may cause you. If you are not willing to understand what this kind of possible restrictions this type of software may cause then go pay full retail. If you are a home user or contract developer (as I am) and can't always afford full retail for a project or two, this is GREAT. Where else does the owner himself help out troubled clients? Great eBayer AAAA+++++ (kidding here) IMHO!

I purchased some a copy of MS Office from them. I got it quite quickly. I had some confusion installing it so I e-mailed them for help and got a very quick response. It's nice to be able to get answers to customer service questions quickly. Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience, our transaction and procuct was what we expected.

POSTED: Friday, February 20, 2009

I just want to say that I've ordered software from them in the past and it functioned perfectly. You must understand that you aren't getting brand new retail software in the box. It is oem software which doesn't offer support or registration from the manufacturer, which is why you get it from them. If you want all that stuff, pay 10x more money and get it from the manufacturer, if not then save some money and buy from these people!

Completely Legit Company

AUTHOR: Drew - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, February 20, 2009

This company isn't selling illegal software. Its OEM and overstock. OEM software is like when you buy a new computer and it comes with Microsoft Word. Its OEM because it came with your computer and you didn't buy the software buy itself. I know someone who works with computers as their job they have boxes of overstock software. I've done business with this company and I am very happy with their customer service. Emails were answered quickly. I requested a certain software and they actaully put that specific one on their site in the same week.

NOT A RIP OFF

AUTHOR: Martin - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, February 18, 2009

i always see people writing bad things about this company and for once i want to write some good stuff. I have had 4 orders with them and so far everything has been flawless.

I have actually bought quickbooks myself and mine works flawlessly, i read and followed the instructions provided and it works great. they sell some overstocks that are previously registered to the company they got them from so not all software can be registered this is true. and i would assume if you tried to reregister it it can up as counterfeit-well DUH!

i always get prompt responses via email and great deals. all my stuff came with clean and concise instructions and serial numbers. so i am confused by all these posts.

well anyway, i thought i would just set the record straight. from my experiences anyway!
