Take-Two Interactive Shuts Down GTA V Scams
Take-Two Interactive is none too pleased with the raft of scammers who’ve attempted to prey upon the demands of Grand Theft Auto fans with scams that promise would-be victims with early access to a nonexistent Grand Theft Auto V beta.
Rather than absolve itself of the situation, the publisher has been aggressive in pursuing action against websites and individuals that claim to offer GTA V beta access through social media.
The company filed complaints to the World Intellectual Property Organization for gta5betacode.com and grandtheftauto5beta.com, two website scams which offered to provide the unwitting with early access to the game.
The publisher’s actions follow efforts to remove and force offline websites like getgtavbeta.com and betagtav.com last month.
