If you happen to use Twitter and even remotely mention video games, there’s a rather high chance you’ve been approached by a Twitter handle mentioning a Max Payne 3 promotion. Numerous Twitter handles are being used to facilitate this “promotion”, but they all point to the same handle that’s running the contest.
The contest states that the Twitter name @MaxPayne3Promo will be giving away 100 copies of Max Payne 3. To enter, you initially were asked to connect via Facebook but it has since been changed to entering in your name and e-mail address. The initial Facebook option was in an effort to steal your login information. With the sign-up now requesting your e-mail, we still recommend steering clear of this website.
While it should be common sense for most of you to not use a website as sketchy as the one running this promotion, there are unfortunately users who will still give it a try. This article is designed to help keep you from having your information hacked or stolen online when scams such as this one are put together.
Again, we ask that you do not use the website that we’ve mentioned in this article. We’ve reached out to Rockstar in regards to the fake promotion website for Max Payne 3, but have not heard back by the time of the article going live. Be sure to let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below, and help spread the word by tweeting this article or liking it on Facebook!
