Just found this...Opened the link to a certain website (I was safe so I didn't let it access anything), but apparently, you have to do a survey or something before it lets you download it...I think it's just a ploy to get your information or something like that. I don't know if it's the real deal or not...Anyone willing to try is free to do so.

Warning from moderator: This link is safe, but don't continue to the one linked in it.

Blizzard issued us 100 Starcraft 2 Beta CD Keys and access to the Beta Client Downloader!

Every 5th person to visit http://www.starcraft2betadl.tk WILL BE GIVEN A CD KEY AUTOMATICALLY, ALONG WITH THE CLIENT DOWNLOADER!

GOOD LOOK TO EVERYONE ! GET THEM WHILE THEY LAST!

Does this sound real to you? Just listen to the guy talk, it's so obviously a sham.

Man, this is definitely a scam (tho' admittedly a marginally cleverer one than most Internet scams are, at least one person would be naive enough to believe it). In some way this is a first, I've never heard of one that specifically targeted gamers before tho' probably there was (and besides, we are perceptive, paranoid and cynical b*stards who have played one strategy game too many, so it's no surprise con-men have no hope in this field). :D

I do note that the site is "Powered by CPALead.com" which is apparently some kind of site for these surveys. I don't think the surveys are harmful (I'm no expert though) but this beta business is not legit.

Definitly fake.
