Diablo® III

Blizzard will NEVER ask you for your password

If you get an e-mail that asks you for your account password, it is spam.

If you get an e-mail that asks you to go to another site that asks you for your password, it is spam.

Generally, if you get an e-mail that looks like it is from Blizzard, it is spam.

If you get a lot of fake Blizzard e-mails, get a new e-mail client. Gmail stops damn near all of those e-mails.

Most likely Bob. Don't worry though, he's a good guy. He'll make sure you get all the latest loot.

A better way to look at it...

If you have to ask if the email is a phishing attempt, it probably is :D

Umm how do they give you access if they don't know the password to you account. Do you even think before you post?


Fail. Cmon everything he said is spot on and clearly with the number of people asking about phishing emails, this topic needs stickied.

Blizzard can add anything to any account out of sheer context that they control all accounts. Therefore, they don't need your password.

This thread is a lie blizzard asked my password and a whole bunch of personal information the day I signed up for battle.net account. This thread lies trust ther phishing emails you did get selected for the diablo 3 beta 6 times in an hour. Be proud of yourself and download anything they ask you to through links as well as provide your username and password. Mutantmonkey is selfish and wants all the beta keys for himself!

We could all learn a thing or two. One example would be the difference between too and to.

Well in that case I should be able to log into beta right now? Just put no password in ;)

This garbage has been going on for years and years.

The people most susceptible are the ones who will never read this thread and even if they do, they'll ignore it.

Barnum was correct when he said there's one born every minute. No amount of public service announcements will ever keep up with the rate of stupidity/naivety/ignorance.
