Fake Sites Claim To Have GTAV Beta Codes, Take-Two Isn't Amused
In the digital age, you have to be forever vigilant. Scams of all kinds are everywhere.
The video game industry certainly isn't immune to the efforts of the low-life creeps out there, and the latest scam involves the hotly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V.
As reported by Fusible, GTA publisher Take-Two Interactive has filed complaints with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) over two sites that claimed to have beta codes for GTAV. GTA5betacode.com, for instance, is a complete website with a Facebook page and YouTube account, and tells users to share the site with their Facebook friends. That will net them a beta code. Unsurprisingly, a great many people have bought into the scam already but thankfully, no money is involved.
But Take-Two isn't happy about it, so they're taking action. For the record, no beta test has been officially announced for Grand Theft Auto V, and nobody has any beta codes, keys, vouchers or whatever else to hand out. Most savvy gamers know this...but not everyone is savvy.
