Beware of Software Scam Artists

Review the following to protect yourself from software scam artists selling counterfeit Autodesk software or claiming to sell Autodesk software as a way to get your credit card data:

Don’t Buy From Auction Websites

A high percentage of software sold on auction websites is counterfeit. Autodesk licenses are not typically transferable, so software from auction sites cannot be transferred into your name or your company’s name.

Ignore Spam Email Messages

If you get an email offering drastically discounted prices for Autodesk software, it’s a scam, and the software is counterfeit. In many cases, these scam artists will use the information you supply upon purchase to commit identity theft or credit card fraud.

Buy Locally

Avoid scams by purchasing software from a local Autodesk Authorized Reseller or the Autodesk Store. Scam artists often steal software from one region and sell it cheaply in another.

Download Only From Autodesk

Only from Autodesk can you download authentic Autodesk software. Autodesk does not authorize any other websites to offer downloads of its software. Report the sale or distribution of unlicensed Autodesk Software.

Avoid Street Vendors

Autodesk Authorized Resellers do not sell Autodesk software on the street or at outdoor markets.
