If you click 'top' on that website it takes you to studentloanconsolidator.com

academic...?

Of course, the academic version of Nuendo 3 should be about $1500, not $20.

Plus, the only delivery option for Nuendo 3 is a 130Mb download. Wow, Nuendo's small! heh

I just checked this site out. Is this site a scam? I went through the process all the way to checkout, but I didn't proceed. They didn't ask me for school or university affiliation. Even the legit academic versions of Nuendo or Cubase are MUCH more that $20.

I don't how how you could use Nuendo or Cubase without a dongle unless it is a crack. Are all of these items cracked?

What's up with e-gold or moneybookers as payment options? No credit card option?!

These prices are insanely low, but there's gotta be a catch.

Anybody successfully use this site?

Those are all cracks, at least it sure looks like it to me. There are many sites like that around the world, selling expensive software for $10 or $20.

At one point I reported a site like this to the company making the real software. They were very appreciative, and did get the site shut down. However, they told me that they would have to have a full time staff and legal department just to keep up with the pirates selling cracks on fake sites like the one you are looking at. When the site gets shut down, these people just start another one somewhere else within days if not hours.

I wouldn't go near software from that site with a ten foot pole. Chances are that site will dissapear without a trace before too long. It just does not look legit to me.

Well S&%t. I'm sure the folks at Steinberg are glad that expensive copy protection deal with Syncrosoft worked for a good... 6 months.
