I was googling for FileMaker-compatible credit card authorization software and saw this ad from Hardcore Mac at store.yahoo.com in the Google adsense ads. You get a full original CD and a serial number, no user manual. Seems legit. Several readers have saved thousands on some of the other deals I noted on this site and thanked me. I can’t vouch for the vendor but I would be surprised if it’s not OK. The other contact information is email@example.com – (702) 307-6251 – (702) 307-8774 fax.
They say the CD runs on Windows and Mac OS X. Even though I really have enough copies of FileMaker 7 already, I’m tempted to get another copy at these prices. Also, of course, FileMaker has a special deal on FileMaker going on called “Buy one FileMaker, give one Free” that amounts to selling the product with manual for $150. But that has some hoops to go through and you’ve got to coordinate with someone else. As usual, I make nothing on this referral. Just wanted to let you all know.

so is this legit?
i don’t think it’s legit; a friend of mine ordered from there and registered the software; later he received an email from FileMaker Inc. informing him as follows; he says his CD looks legit according to the description below, but apparently the serial number is not valid
