Thread: SCAM: Dreamcast.com

    Thumbs down SCAM: Dreamcast.com

    UPDATE - PROVEN TO BE A SCAM.

    Sadly Sega dont own the domain and the company that does have affiliate links and are using the domain to get your emails and more, check via comments for all the detailed information, lets hope Sega Kick their arses. Do not give your email to these people.


    It seems that SEGA of Japan just updated their Dreamcast website at Dreamcast.com



    By clicking on this image, you'll be taken to dreamcast.com/apps/ucp.php

    Dreamcast users can register there with a user account for their console's serial number and will get an account @user.dreamcast.com.

    The image linked to above is called "dc_promo_2008" which obviously hints to the fact that SEGA might be celebrating the 10th birthday of the Dreamcast this year.

    If you ever wanted to show SEGA that you are still out there playing your Dreamcast, now is the time!

    I would guess: both ^ ^



    Though I don't think you will get anything of physical value, they will probably give you access to browse some goodies like music, TV ads or something like that.


    I guess, like you said, they probably really want to know how many of us are still out there.


    BTW, here's how the site looked a few months ago:

    Lordnikon from OnlineConsoles has an interesting comment about it:

    I wonder what will happen when every rabbid Dreamcast community, every "blog" on the internet, and every message board, realizes that someone has setup the above domain name in an effort to scam the Dreamcast fanbase for google ad hits and affiliate points at play-asia.

    Code:
    input type="hidden" name="affiliate_id" value=380345
    This is a scam.

    Remember the shenmue.com/Shenmue Passport debocle?
