It came to my attention while browsing some Facebook pages, I came across 2 links to websites that are apparently offering, Grand Theft Auto V beta keys. Sites like this should be avoided and reported to the publisher of the said video game, in this case, it’s Rockstar Games. I have reported the sites to Rockstar so it’s only a matter of time before these sites will be taken down.
You should always be aware that no publlisher would offer beta keys to the public to test, some do I know, but only via their own official website, Social Networks or through Xbox Live and the Playstation Network.
Here are some guidelines you should follow, so you can keep browsing the web safely:
- Do not enter your email address otherwise you may encounter alot of spam coming your way
- Do not ‘Like’ them via Facebook otherwise this may cause some privacy concerns for you
- Do not download anything from the sites, unless you want your computer to be invested with viruses and malicious software.
Therefore keep away from any such sites and report them.
Also on another topic, there is a Facebook page for 'GTA V' but they are trying to pretend to be Rockstar Games themselves and have been linking to the sites mentioned above. But people need to be on alert of such things, especially in this day of age. So keep surfing safe, and if it sounds too good to be true, it properbly is.
