Video Game Scams: A Gateway To Serious Trouble

Here’s a common scam you may find in the gaming community. It involves scammers tricking their victims into paying a nominal one-time fee, for supposed access to unlimited downloads of games for PCs and gaming consoles like the XBOX 360 and the Playstation 3.

In actuality all these people are getting for their money are a set of links to file sharing/torrent sites that aren’t legal to use anyway since swapping games and files is a form of piracy.  Not only is using a torrent site ill advised, but they also may host a minefield of malware-infected programs that you could end up downloading unknowingly.

Even if you decided to take a risk and use one of these file sharing sites, it still does not require a $40 passage through a gateway in order to find. This is why it’s important to be wary of potential offers like this and steer clear of them! And if you’re looking for cheap video games, you can never go wrong with digital distribution systems like Steam or Origin.
