Microsoft takes action against Halo 4 beta scam
A scam site luring users with false promises of Halo 4 beta access is the latest target of Microsoft’s legal wrath.
Fusible reports Microsoft has filed a complaint against the site with the National Arbitration Forum.
The veracity – or rather, lack of it – of Halo4beta.net hit headlines last week after a warning from 343 Industries sent us scurrying to Google “Halo 4 beta”.
Apparently uncomfortable with the scrutiny, the site’s owners took it down, but Microsoft is now pushing to transfer ownership of the domain.
Halo 4 is expected exclusively for Xbox 360 by the end of the year.
Thanks, Strategy Informer.
