Start buy securing your email account. After that when you go to purchase LR or the Photographers subscription plan you will be on the Adobe Secured website and that has nothing to do with your email account that is currently being Hacked.
What's the evidence?
Hard to make suggestions if we don't know what you're seeing...
The email is supposedly from one of my friends. The subject line was my friend's first & middle names. The body of the email: "Hello, How are you? For your review, I attached the entire signed documents for you in my Adobe Drive, and granted you access to view them, check the "Drive Here" (link) and login with your email to gain access. Please keep it confidential and share your opinion with me. Thanks and regards, " It was signed with my friend's name.
The link goes to a web address, "www.thursdaynightblues.com/up-add.php" The page is "Current Adobe Customers; get all our creative apps and more for free/mo"lo
The page appears to be legit, complete with Adobe logo. Clicking on the blue "Log in with your email" button caused a warning from my World of Trust Google app. "Warning! grow-shop-uruguay.com.uy. This website has a poot reputation based on user ratings. Trustworthiness=Very Poor. Users have identified the following issues: Phising"
Thanks for your help.
Never ever click on links in emails whether they are from a friends or coworker. Really how old are you and how long have you been using a computer? This type of Scam has been going on for decades.
Your friends email account, and his name, has been hacked not yours. That is until you click on the link and whether or not you actually enter your email login ID and the password for it.
Was your friend supposed to send you some documents? If not why did you click on the link? I got one like that a few weeks ago with the topic and body saying something like "I thought you would like this. Check out this site". I CALLED my friend and asked if he had sent me an email with a link to some site. He didn't. His Yahoo email account had been hacked.
Still all of this has nothing to do with buying Adobe software from the Adobe website. When you go to enter your CC # you are on a Secured Web Site. Not sending it in an email.
Thank you for your advise, in spite of the somewhat unkind remarks. It all helps.
