Assuming you aren't trolling, the easiest way to find out is by manually visiting us.battle.net and logging into your account. Don't click any links in the e-mail.

You can post the message just not any links, if it's real, you're lucky!

This.

If it's from blizzard.com or battle.net, is just instructions, and doesn't have any links then it's either legit or a hoax, but not a scam.

It's a hoax. The website is probably like
us.battle.net.randomstuff.morerandomstuff.phishingattempt/randomnumbers.

As for how they know you went to blizzcon? Well how do people know I have a runescape account? I don't and I still get emails about a runescape account.

Yes it gives me a link to the battle.net account log in I am calling blizzard and asking if I can get a confermation that these email have been sent out. If needed I will forward it to them so they can report it as phishing


Good luck, hope it's real. Obviously don't click on any links.

You don't need to call them. Bash has already stated that the only action needed to confirm a beta invite is to got to battle.net (type the url into your web browser, do not follow links), log into your account and check you account page to see if D3 beta is listed as a downloadable client.

No. It works different for the Blizzcon keys. They did not ask for Battle.net e-mails in the last blizzcon. Therefore the key is sent to your e-mail and you can register it to an account of your choice. It was the same way with Starcraft 2 keys. Those of us who got in through Blizzcon had to register our game key. Those who were opted-in got in through the method you listed. Please do some research before you post.

*smacks you with a rolled up newspaper*

I said don't follow links. Type the battle.net address into your web browser's url bar, click account at the top of the page (or click it at the top of this page for that matter), sign in, and view the games listed on your account. You can even click the "download game client" button on the side of your account screen. If D3 isn't there, the email is a fake.

EDIT @ Erik:

Oh. Nm then I guess? But I thought the Blizzcon invites were related to this year's attendees and not last year's. Whatevah. I've given my best advice. If you get malware, it wasn't for my lack of trying.
