Here is something interesting for you to do if you want to catch lots of scammers.  Just get a new gmail and post the address on about 3 guestbooks, in about a week you'll get tons of funny emails, sometimes even a hitman claiming that he was tasked to hunt you but he had a change of heart and asks for money in return.

You can end up playing with them and making them go on day trips to pick up your package of laptops you sent them, depends on your story

Excellent grammar! :lol:

 

Like R* would send an email from Slovakia...

"You invite Beta tester GTA V to Windows."

 

I dont know why but I laughed so hard at this.

Heard about this weeks ago, can't believe this hasn't been posted before (probably has somewhere, right?).
I've heard of people downloading an 18gig download and it's filled with gay porn, apparently some guy on another forum (keeping this anon) downloaded it, saying the email was legit and looked nice but he had to fill 3-4 surveys (didn't hit him as unusual) and then he got a code which opened up the zip file or something like that and it was just tons and tons of gay porn videos and pictures. :lol:

This is why I love the internet. People are seriously stupid.

Rockstar isn't even known to give out betas of their games (apart from GTAO lmao. But that's a different story). So that alone should be a red flag that it's a fake before even clicking on the damn thing.

Unfortunately there are people gullible enough to actually believe these emails, and others whose English isn't good enough to realize the obvious grammar mistakes in them.

Let's be brutally honest here, guys. If you open that mail, believe it's from R* (especially if you've ever had mail from them before, which is very graphic heavy) and then go on to attempt to get into it - well, you f*cking deserve everything that happens to you as a result of it. 

 

Seriously, that sh*t wouldn't have flown in the 90s, let alone today. Come on, scammers, up your game or get the game up you.

In Soviet Russia, GTA V beta tests YOU.

 

OT: These e-mail scams are something out of the 90's to be honest. Falling for that was supposed to be quite hard nowadays but it doesn't seem like so.

Only the dumbest idiots of dumb idiots will fall for this :lol:.
Why the f*ck would anyone even click that lmao.

Anyone claiming they emulated GTA V is full of sh*t, you need a MONSTER PC to emulate PS2 Games, let alone PS3/X360. Everyone saying they have something cool or interesting that you want, and the link to it is a survey or a passworded rar file with the link to the password being a survey, is a f*cking asshole trying to get money.
All the sites that require you to do a survey in order to download a file should be shut down, simple.

I had a friend on my job years ago. He talked about "some big thing" he had going in another country that would make him rich. He went there, came back but werent rich. Soon after he quit the job, they then said he had went there due to a spam mail he believed in.... I dont know if its true, but if it is I feel very sorry for him.

You don't need a monster pc to emulate PS2, only a good one. However PS3 and 360 isn't possible to emulate today.

 

Well, Iam emulating both PS2 and Wii on my PC and altough its a strong machine, it's not a monster pc. i5 4670k, GTX 760 and 16gig ram.

We all have to agree that Rockstar is causing all this mess, since every PC gamer I know is crazy for the game. The smarter ones don't fall for this, but there always will be those who believe in everything.

My computer is far from being a monster computer and I can emulate games like GTA SA pretty well, and smoothly. You just need the right BIOS for the emulator.

I have no sympathy for people that goes for that stuff. I honestly believe that the internet would be a better and smarter place if people made more fake torrents but only in ways that the fake torrent would be chosen by the idiot, not forced onto him (like opening an email or something not as harsh as that). Something like him clicking DOWNLOAD when there's clear signs it's not a R* file.

I know Half Life 2 also had like a 15gig download with gay porn. There's a lot of love for men on men stuff with fake downloads. If someone is into that I don't think the fake download was worthless.
