DICE is spreading the word that there are no beta sign-ups currently for Battlefield Bad Company 2. Any invites or notifications people receive are phishing scams. Battlefield producer Gordon Van Dyke recommends taking action and “give them the middle finger.” He also noted that official announcements would come from the website or official Twitter.

In fact, many of the comments regarding the MW2 pre-order indicated that some players would be making the switch to Battlefield Bad Company 2 for that reason.
