Potential Phishing Beta Emails Cause Uproar! Stay Safe!

Hekki fellow Shrubbites!

Like you, I just received 2 emails purporting to be from swtor asking me to A. answer a survey about being in the beta test, and B. pre-order SWTOR.

I am notifying you because there's some rumors flying around that these are official bioware emails and that it was somehow a mistake. THIS IS NOT TRUE AND THERE HAS BEEN NO CONFIRMATION OF THIS!

Please do not click any links in these emails or follow them to any pages. If you have already done so, please do not input any information on those sites until there is an official statement from Bioware.
