Diablo® III

SCAM email are LIVE.

Hi,

Just sharing my experience with a Scam e-mail.

I received an e-mail 2 days ago about my WoW account, saying it was stolen and being sold illegaly and that i needed to log-in into my >>BATTLE.NET<< account to confirm it was mine and reset my password. ( There was a link )

Thing is i never, ever played WoW nor tried it.

So SCAM emails may not be Diablo 3 related but they try to steal your BATTLE.NET account.

Watch out ya'll :)

this is a direct copy from my email so dont click links......, it dont show the images that came up after it was forwarded either but it was a bunch of what appears to be Asian lettering with a Asian female holding a all day sucker with a cheesy smile on her face.

I got one of these about a year ago. Funny thing being I hadn't had an installed Blizzard game since I stopped playing D2 sometime during the first ladder. I have long learned, that getting any of these emails from any company should be a red flag. I have never had a legit email that asks for my log-in information.

Please don't post the links you've received in phishing emails on the forums, guys (and ladies). That only put other players' accounts at risk if they happen to follow them. :)

What you can do -- besides just deleting them outright -- is to forward them onto hacks@blizzard.com. You can also look at ways to ramp up your email security, as that may help prevent you from receiving these kinds of emails in the first place.

(More info on phishing emails can be found here.)

This. I thought everyone knew about these by now.

If you use hotmail they have a trusted sender flag that will appear to let you know this email is as legit as it gets. It looks like this:

Real Blizzard emails get them too. Never be fooled by phishers again.

Just wanted to mention this: I used to forward all Blizzard scam mails to hacks@blizzard.com, as Lylirra mentions. That actually got me in trouble with my mail provider, as they thought I was involved in spamming. So now I try to forward when I see something I haven't seen before.
That said, I've yet to receive any scam mail for Diablo. It's mostly been WoW.

Wow, you know or have a strong suspicion that it's a scam/phishing site, yet you go to it anyway and then paste the link in the forums. GG humanity.
