GTA V PC "Beta" Is A Hilarious Scam

GTA V PC "Beta" Is A Hilarious Scam

There’s a scam going around trying to trick people into thinking they have been accepted into a beta test for a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V. Surprise! There is no beta.

An email doing the rounds asks people to click on a URL and download a .zip file, the latter of which contains malware.

The funny part comes in the email itself; rather than actually try, and use Rockstar imagery and fancy banner images, it comes via plain text. And says “You invited beta tester GTAV to Windows”.

Hey, at least they remembered to capitalise “Windows”.

As of now, there is zero information on a GTAV release for PC at all, let alone a beta. Since GTAIV was released on PC, and remains popular to this day thanks to an active modding scene, you’d assume it should be out sometime this year, but ever since Red Dead passed the platform by folks have been worried.
