Please beware that if you are considering purchasing a Mach3 license from Ebay – always buy from an authorised Artsoft dealer.
(I regularly report the Pirate license peddlers to Ebay but unfortunately little is done and they keep returning).

If you purchase your license from a non-authorised dealer you may be getting a Pirate copy - even if the seller can put your name on the license Mach3 may still recognise it as a Pirate license.

Please see earlier post; http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,24331.msg241127.html#msg241127

I have a person wanting me to do support but the license seems dodgy. Has any one come across a fake license in the name of Ivan Todosijevic?

Ivan Todosijevic is indeed a known Pirate license.

Bugger. Makes me f$%ng mad. And then they insist on getting service because you are the local agent.

I know it's easy for me to say but all they need to do is purchase a genuine license.

It is that simple really. They just spent thousands on a machine but the software they can pirate. Bull********* story I say. And it is not just Mach3 it is also Sheetcam. I am an agent for both and then he wants me to service him on both packages with his licenses that are stolen.

I guess it is more a matter of principal and if a person is willing to steal the software what makes him obliged to pay the account after you have done the work?

Hmm..........

% upfront before starting work and remaining % upon delivery.
90 / 10 sounds like good ratio to me.  ;)
