Bogus Videos and Security Concerns 19 August 2008
Recently, scammers have posted two bogus videos on popular internet hosting sites to try to trick Guild Wars players into revealing their account information. One video alleges to show players how to hack into Guild Wars, while the other offers early entry into the Guild Wars 2 beta. Both of these videos are completely bogus and are directly linked to recent account thefts. Do not fall for these scams. Remember: never give your account password out to anyone. Also, when legitimate information about the Guild Wars 2 beta is available, you will find it first on www.guildwars.com.
