Battle.net Account Scam

The Spammer Scammers are going after your Blizzard Battlenet account now. I always check my spam box before emptying it, and this one caught my attention, because it’s really well written. None of the usual grammar mistakes, none of the misspellings. It’s really quite well written

It even uses legitimate Blizzard phone numbers and email address. Just don’t click on the ‘Account Management’ review link. If you do, it takes you to a fishing site.

Or on the other hand, maybe you should click on it, and enter a fake email address and password. Let them try to steal the treasure from a non-existent World of Warcraft account. Or if you are feeling energetic, write a bot to click on it, and enter a whole bunch of fake email addresses and passwords! Give them that fulfilled feeling, when they think they’ve harvested 5 billion World of Warcraft accounts. Oh wait. There aren’t that many. Oops.
