That is a VERY common scam email. They have been sending them out for years to WoW players too and likely for every other popular game. Please forward the email to hacks@blizzard.com and then delete it.

Do NOT click on any links in it or provide any information.

And DELETE THE LINK in your post please. That will compromise accounts if anyone clicks on it.

Matos,

They "spoof" or fake the headers in the email so it looks like it comes from the real address. They are lying though. There is an article here on how to spot phishing emails and how to view the headers. http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/phishing

If you receive a phishing email, please forward the email to hacks@blizzard.com at your earliest convenience. When forwarding the email, copy and paste the entire email header into the message body to ensure that we are able to identify the source. This information will help us prevent future phishing emails of the same type.
