    Has to be spam or phishing as Adobe Reader does not allow creating or editing of PDF files as far as I am aware. There is nothing mentioned on the Adobe Reader web site about these new features that you would have had to purchase the full Adobe X Pro to get.

    Oh sure it is Ted, the link in the email was not Adobe and I checked my Adobe for updates and there were none.

    They pick a program that most people have and then send an email and a lot of people will click on it because they have the program...

    I NEVER click on any email links..

    No Adobe updates ever come that way, via E-mail. Just another scam, phishing.

    Describing it as an Adobe Scam makes it sound like they are the originators.

    It's a scam for Adobe Products, not an Adobe Scam.
