I was sent a software app (legit source) and don't know how to open it. The suffix is .rar I think it's probably for PCs.

Any ideas what it is and how I can access it?

You can use this:

But my MacBook Pro opens them automatically. It's a compressed file like .zip.

Of course, I open/unzip the file and the software is .exe. Arrggghhh.

I have written the author to ask for my money back.

It's been forever since I had this kind of problem.
