"It has come to our attention that there are multiple individuals and sites claiming to sell testing accounts, 'beta keys', or other offers of access to our Game Testing Program," community manager Allison Berryman said on the SWTOR forums.

"All of these offers are false. BioWare is not issuing invites to Game Testing via any method other than those we outline here on SWTOR.com. We must caution you that these offers are often scams designed to steal your money, credit card information, or identity." BioWare added that selling of beta accounts is strictly prohibited for obvious reasons.
Be careful, folks!

Is this like how you pay for a game and then don't get to play it because you badmouthed BioWare?

Really hope that EA accounts won't be involved at all with TOR.

Honestly, this is pretty normal. Most MMO developers have to give warnings like this, and it'd be pretty damn irresponsible of BioWare if they didn't.
