Nintendo has released a statement warning consumers about fake web pages designed to look like the company’s online store, highlighting the dangers of submitting your information to such pages.
The statement (Japanese) speaks of a specific case that the company has recently discovered; the fake website in question uses the Nintendo logo illegally, making it look like the real thing, and offers Nintendo Switch products at discounted prices. It is warned that the fake site, which has not been linked to, “has nothing to do” with Nintendo.
As we are sure many of you already know, buying products from fake websites claiming to be Nintendo could potentially result in the loss of your money and the unauthorized acquisition of your personal information.
