Scam alert: Do not fall for the Grand Theft Auto 5 beta bait

Rockstar hasn't announced anything of the sort.

You can't sign up for a Grand Theft Auto 5 beta; nothing has ever even been mentioned about a Grand Theft Auto 5 beta. Heck, it's unlikely Rockstar will even do a beta for GTA5.

That's why when you see any website or Facebook page saying otherwise, you know it's a scam. And there are plenty of them.

Take-Two filed two more complaints this week against and, taking its number of open cases - relative to these scams - to four.

Don't fall for it!

Grand Theft Auto 5 is out in September.
