    I just got this email from some dude name Romeo, claiming he works along side with Electr0nic @rts's GI JOE. What do you think? Shit or Legit? :cool:

    Here's the email

    Code:
    Hey there,
    
     
    
    I?m working alongside Electronic Arts on the release of G.I. JOE The Rise of Cobra The Game across multiple platforms, including Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and Nintendo DS.  We thought you might be interested in receiving game related assets and a review copy. 
    
     
    
    Game Description:
    
    YO JOE! Suit up, grab your gear and prepare to lock and load as you take control of the elite G.I. JOE? team and fight the evil forces of COBRA?!  Go beyond the blockbuster movie and experience new surprises, storylines and epic battles in G.I. JOE? The Rise of Cobra? The Game from Electronic Arts.

    It would be great if you could share your initial impressions of the game with your readers prior to the release date on 8/4.  If you?d be interested in receiving a review copy, please send over your address and console preference.

    If its too good to be true or seems that way then its most likely a scam. Tell that person to take those games and shove it, imo.

    Probably a scam. Seems to much like a mail to fool you to click the links.

    If they wanted to get in touch with you they had sent you a formal email requesting if you wanted their material. If they couldn't reach you by mail they'd reach you by phone
