GamerTestingGround.com, scam or not? Help me find out!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
http://game-testers.com/

Then leads to this site:

http://www.gamertestingground.com/?hop=theposse

It sounded somewhat legit until I saw his ridiculous membership prices. If this is a scam, he put a lot of efforts into it. I haven't checked in details the disclaimer and stuff. But he does offer the usual "money back guarantee" and "secure transactions" stuff.

Obviously you don't get paid over 12$ an hour for these kinds of jobs, but if this is even remotely legit, I'd be willing to give it a try... But this reeks with scam...

Your opinions?

EDIT: Just found a first flaw: It says in the disclaimer that the sweepstakes is open to US residents only, but there's a guy from Canada in the list of winners. *scam sensor going wild*

If you sign up and they ask for money then its a scam. Looks scammy to me. Just remember. If it sounds to good to be true then odds are it is.

it sounds like you sign up for his site, and then he "shows" you how to get a job like that.

I like how he says: The following games have been tested before release. and then shows pictures of a bunch of major games.

Yea, He's 100% right. Crysis, CoD4 and AoC were all tested before release.

Not once on that entire page did I read that he is actually an employed game tester.

This is a big scam that a lot of dumb kids get their parents to buy. Stay away from this thing. It reeks of scam. His page is very well marketed.. he cleverly words these things. I'm pretty sure that sites like these are all owned by a company that just does those sites and scams people out of their money.
