If it isn't announced on the Official ESO Facebook, Official ESO Twitter, or Official ESO Website then it is a scam and do not fall for it.

The Video is a scam if you didn't figure out yourself

One of those.. I can't imagine people are acutally stupid enough to believe in it, then again. Not everyone are aware of all the scamming on the internet - I guess Email Scams and so on works 1 out of 1000000 or so.

EDIT - Simple way to fix it seeing the ads use Google Chrome and download ADBlock. (Can be temporary disabled if you wish to support your favorite sites)

That's a Google Adsense on on 9gag though, it can appear just about anywhere. Best thing to do is to get Google to stop running the ad.

Some people have too much time on their hands.. darn phishers, scammers, and hackers.

I was on the losing end of a Trojan virus about 9 years ago. I was 14 and fell for it. Never again. Thanks for spreading the warning.

It isn't really about the time. TESO will be the next thing these same phishers and scammers are after. They are just attempting to provide their family a living, you know :/
