Website selling Logic Pro X 10.5.1. for $79 WARNING

Sat Aug 01, 2020 9:26 am

We all get targeted ads on facebook now.. Yesterday this showed up on my FB feed. {spam link removed}

Although it says, Apple is the seller, AND the website looks and indeed is real. it appeared too good to be true. Reading thru the comments some mentioned it was a special versions of Logic, sold under a 'volume' discount. Although this does appear to be a wonderful price, it is not sold thru apple, it does not require your apple ID and you will NOT be able to get upgrades.

In a sens Apple could be a winner anyway; you need a Mac to run Logic. So you buy a Mac ( Apple ring the bell), you buy this cracked version, you use it, you buy the legal version because you want the peace of mind (Apple ring the bell again) and you get the updates. So, why not just use the trial in the end and save 70 bucks?

REPORT IT so that it gets taken down immediately. Don't just sit there idly staring at it.

i think that stratquebec is saying to use the trial instead of this 'version'... so no need to spend '$70'. then, one can simply buy the app legit.
