Purchasing from resellers - legit?


I want some BIM software for personal, not professional use. Revit comes in a 'Lite' version that costs ~$520/year, , and I've been finding it frustrating trying to find out how much ArchiCAD SE, or 'Start' costs to compare.

These days, I don't assume that something is legitimate just because it's at the top of google search results. That said, there is a website that purports to sell the full version of ArchiCAD for $499. The chatbot says it's a lifetime license and they can offer that because they bought "volume licensing". That doesn't seem legitimate, surely it's a scam, right?

It is not legitimate.

This will tell you were you can buy a legitimate copy of Archicad.
