This is what I received from the news on the Seattle TV stations for this URL.

http://www.bestsoftnow.biz/?arcing - This is either pirated software or a scam, according to the TV stations in Seattle, Washington, USA.. This is a site that has no email address for confirmation of anything. If you should order software from them and give a credit card number, this is supposedly a scam to obtain credit card numbers and other info. In addition, according to the TV stations, if you receive any software, it apparently doesn't work.

"kontakt" - don't even bother... Feb 18, 2004

Thanks for the warning!
Also, they do state there is no support available; and if you click on their "contact us" link, you get to this error page:

"The requested URL /CD Cheap with SV for affiliates with spam/kontakt.php was not found on this server."
