World of Warcraft – Account Investigation Scam


I hate scammers. I really do. is telling me that I’ve tried to sell my personal World of Warcraft accounts. Since I don’t place World of Warcraft this is mildly amusing. Even if I did play World of Warcraft I’m a nasty, mean, suspicious old coot, and I wouldn’t fall for something like this.

But there are people who do, so warn your friends. A copy of the full spam email is below the break for reference.
