Be Aware Of This Nintendo Switch Beta Scam

It appears that 2 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 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 the code is just a bunch of 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 you just just stay away.
