Ya so went to the site as linked, clicked the runescape button and get key button. made an account. was brought into a page DEMANDING my first name, last name, and birth month and year. there is NO reason to give this info at all. this is an information phishing attempt in blatant place. i can 100% guarantee if i had given the info i would NEVER see the promised rewards at all.

DO NOT give companies information like this and its sad to see jagex partnering with them in a blatant info grabbing manner.

Your birth month and year is required as a statement that you are a legal adult, and therefore able to do business with them.

Note that they don't ask for your birth DAY, however, so the information is of limited utility.

And also...

This is a load of rubbish. I got mine, other people got theirs. You're scaremongering on the basis of something you haven't even tried for yourself.

my NAME is NOT information they need at all. the only reason to have that is to phish information. its not scaremongering when im correct. this is the same crap tactic used by their "partners" in the free key/runecoin survey crap. they never actually pay out what they say they will.

If SteelSeries knowing your name and birthday worries you that much, you can just delete your SteelSeries account after you've redeemed the code, like I did, since I probably won't be using it for anything else.

You're under no obligation to provide them with accurate information.

Burner email. Fake name. Inaccurate DOB.

Got the code no problem. Gotta be smart on the internet.

Exactly.

Just because you choose not to do this doesnt mean its an issue.

Plus you have no proof that they're trying to phish ppl anyways.

Like to add:

There is a website (a quick google does wonders...) that gives you a 10 minute email adress for stuff like this. That way ur not using ur real email + for signing up, just don't use ur real year/month.

idk what OP is on about tho

The Runecoins and cosmetics come from Jagex itself, and are delivered by Jagex itself, not by SteelSeries.

So either...
a) you are accusing JAGEX of running a scam promotion, or
b) you really don't have any idea what's going on here.

Which is it?
