Email Scam from "noreply@battle.com"

Posts: 3
Just wanted to let people be aware of this particular scam, but also I'd like to know how they managed to get my email associated with battle.net when I have not signed up to anything in relation to battle.net with that particular account (also, not even close to my IP address). Anyway, here it is...

From "noreply@battle.com"

As too many customer complaints, the 125.98.104.* IP range has been blacklisted.

Go one today, they just shotgun these emails actually and HOPE.

Didnt open it, ended up in spam folder so I researched saw it was from battle.com and thought it very strange.

Deleted now.

You know, if they had a guy that could actually speak English, it would help their crimes vastly.

If I opened one is that bad ? I ran a scan just in case. But didn't click on any links. It was in my junk mail folder, so yeah. I thought it was real at first, then noticed it read "Battle.COM" and then remembered how it is "Battle.NET" officially.

Nope never got one of those. But I do get the ones claiming some dude in Africa has 550 million dollars for me. I get those all the time. Or the one claiming I'm under investigation from interpol.

Or how about that one that tells me my cell phone bill is over due. Ha, delete, oh that's legit. NM.
