    to a Finnish non-profit organization and you'll receive a fully working
    license for jv16 PowerTools 2011, and the same license will also work with
    the upcoming 2012 version.

    which promotes and defends civil liberties in Finland.

    You are entitled to participate because you are an existing customer of

    So it follows that anyone else who takes advantage of the offer is doing this under false pretences, and depriving Macecraft of rightful revenue?

    No, it looks like Macecraft is the one promoting this.

    I've received this email about 20 times. I'm a little mad at the Macecraft dude. He had a promo last summer that if you 'liked' him and Macecraft on Facebook that you would receive a free 2012 license for JV16 tools. Never saw anything. No response to email. I've been using Jv16 since Fred Langa recommended it years ago. I haven't bothered to re-up since 2010 because of the non-responsiveness.

    Similar problems. I don't know what is happening or if there is something fraudulent.

    I got an offer to upgrade for half off. PayPal was charged for the full amount. Emails to Macecraft were never answered.

    It's definitely not a scam, the email which I received too, links to a page in their website.
