Have Fake GTAV Receipts Emerged In Hopes To Break Release Embargo?

As of the 14th of September, a mere 3 days before its official release September 17th release, it seems that a few random receipts of Rockstar’s highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V are making the rounds.

The first receipt you’ll see on the right was sent to me early last night under the impression that it was a fake receipt. Due to me working at JB Hi-Fi and dealing with a lot of these receipts, I instantaneously agreed this receipt as a fake.

Anyone who has worked in retail would clearly see that any item, if available on various platforms would state under the title which platform said item was purchased on.

With games it would state whether or not it was for PC, 360, 3DS, Wii U, Ps3 etc…

As you can see on this receipt this is not the case. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

Even before it was confirmed to be fake you could already tell by how dodgy the cover looked.

That cover for the game already looked fake! I mean look at the color. People will fake anything these days :/

Thats pretty desperate, but if people want something they sometimes go for ´desperate Measures. I hope Gamestop calls me tomorrow
