Don't let the excitement of the upcoming Battlefield 3 beta
cause a serious error in judgment. Community site BF3blog
point out that the "beta keys" on the site BF3nation are a scam -- also noting that the site's owners were also involved in a previous phishing scheme. EA has allegedly been trying to shut down the site, but has so far been unsuccessful.
When the Battlefield 3
beta is upon us, trust that you'll definitely hear about it from your buddies at Joystiq ... oh yeah, and the rest of the internet
. It won't be something that'll fly under the radar. In the meantime, assume anything that involves BF3
beta keys is a scam. We've contacted EA for a direct quote on the subject.
