Don’t Fall for the GTAV Beta Scam
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
It wouldn’t be the first time people have fallen for a scam relating to the release of a AAA game. Grand Theft Auto V is no exception and has made many eager gamers the target with a range of phishing scams, dodgy torrent downloads and more. Of course a little common sense goes a long way, but scammers are getting smarter and it never hurts to be informed.
The current popular scam is that there is a Grand Theft Auto V beta, people are being tricked into signups, handing over their private details, downloading dodgy software and more – DON’T DO THIS. The simple fact is that there is no beta, in fact, the only way you’ll be playing this game prior to its official release is on either the Xbox 360 / PS3 versions. Unless you happen to be a developer, reviewer or press affiliate who works with Rockstar.
Rockstar has even been working hard to inform the masses that this is indeed a scam – so it must be a fairly seriously problem for the developer. The game is set to launch on November 18th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the PC release following on January 27th 2015. Don’t fall for the scams, just sit tight and wait for your pre-order or the release day.
