Google Music Invite – Scam
By on May 16th, 2011

Google Music, a platform that allows users to upload their music collection to an online personal library from where they can listen and download it to a device that is connected to the Internet.

Google Music Beta

Google Music is currently in Beta and the service is available on a limited, invite-only basis in the U.S. only. There are scammers who are offering “free Google Music Beta invite” which you should probably avoid clicking such links.

Mashable inquired with a Google representative.

Any person or website claiming to be giving awayGoogle Music invites is lying, a fact we’ve just confirmed with Google representatives. Because of the way invites are handed out, they’re linked to specific Google Accounts. In other words, one person can’t request an invite and pass it on; the invite has to be requested and accepted by the same Google Account.

Just be sure that you don’t fall for this trap. If you come across links for Google Music invites, don’t click them. Don’t bother sharing them on social networking sites or anywhere else. If you’re a US resident, then the only way you can request for an invite is from http://music.google.com/about/
