GW2 Beta Scam

I came across this website today:

http://guildwars2beta.com/

offering keys to the closed beta, if you take part in a survey.

I just thought I'd warn you guys that it's a scam. There is no guild wars 2 beta, yet... and the only place you'd be able to sign up for it would be

http://www.guildwars2.com/

Hi

Thanks Aledhere for the warning >:)

But next time though, DO NOT post links to suspect sites. Just in case its bobby trapped with viruses.

As you can guarantee that someone will click on your link just to have a look. |:(

One way to show suspect links is to replace the '.' with ','

So the suspect site in your warning would be:

guildwars2beta,com

Still

Thanks for the heads up d;)b

I'm pretty sure it's safe in that respect, but yeah, that's a fair point. Thanks.

You can also see (if you go to the "beta" site) that it doesn't have this stuff at the bottom:

© 2011 ArenaNet, Inc. All rights reserved. Guild Wars 2, ArenaNet, NCsoft, the Interlocking NC Logo, and all associated logos and designs are trademarks or registered trademarks of NCsoft Corporation. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

which is at the bottom of every page on the official site.

I get so many emails from fake WoW, Guild Wars, and other games sites. In Internet Explorer, if you hover the mouse over the link, it will list the real url in the lower left of the window. Even in these times, so many people will automatically click on a link without investigating it first. Young and old, some people will never learn.

Whois Lookup of the "Guildwars2beta.com" link reveals:

ArenaNet would never use GoDaddy.com to host their sites.

Maybe I need to post some "freemoneynow" links and snare some fools? -)
