    If you paid for it, give them a copy only. And if they want the original, run from them as fast as you can. They are giving you a bunch of garbage and want you to belong to them, so that you cannot back out of anything.

    They are not doing what they are supposed to do. And you do not need to go along with it.

    You get the original in your hands, it is yours and not theirs.
