Unfortunately, there has been a nasty Nintendo-related scam making rounds lately. Two sites are being spread on the internet that point to a fake Nintendo Switch Beta registration page, which asks for your email to get an invitation code. The sites belong to a domain registered from someone who has no involvement with Nintendo. The email itself will say the following: “PREPARE FOR REVOLUTION – Congratulation! You are eligible to join the Nintendo Switch™ Beta Program! You are chosen, which means you can get into the Nintendo Switch Beta! You will receive the Nintendo Switch Beta Hardware which includes 1 System, 1 Docking Station, 2 Switch Controller (Left and Right) HDMI cable, 1 power adaptor, as well as instruction booklet. Below, you will find a code to redeem. Please note: This code is specifically for your account, so do not share this with anyone”. The code it sends you seems legitimate, but in truth, code is just numbers. Nintendo uses alphanumeric codes. There’s no telling what the consequences of going with the scam will do, but it is a scam, and it’s something to stay clear of as much as possible.
