What you posted is a phishing email and did not originate from Blizzard Entertainment. Your best bet is to forward that email to Hacks@Blizzard.com so that our Hacks team can look into it, and then report that email as phishing or spam and add the sender to your "blocked senders" list.

Yes, I have been getting these e-mails since Warcraft 2: Battle.net edition so they are no suprise to me.

the # 1 way to spot a fake is if they require information. Blizzard already has your info.. encrypted or not

edit: I highly recomend you scan your computer for keyloggers or other types of spyware if you indeed, which you did, open that e-mail.

Anyone that would fall for this deserves to have their account closed.

hacks@blizzard.com does not work to fend off cheats, hackers, and other fishy people. I have used it twice with good evidence supporting my claims of 3rd party program use, and 2-3 weeks afterwards, the same person is still using the same programs. I supplied video evidence which shows said program in action. Still nothing. Hacks@blizzard.com sucks

Yea Blizz doesn't care. They shouldn't either. It's your own fault if you buy into a scam.

Here is a screenshot of someone trying to scam me:

I got this email as well... I ignored it but I wish I wouldn't get them in the first place. It really appears to come from blizzard! That's the weird thing.

Spammers can fake (spoof) from email addresses easily. So they could make it seem like it's from whoever they want.

I really wish banks/etc would get into the practice of NOT including links in emails. Even blizzard is guilty of this (with having support link at the bottom). Scam emails could look identical and have a different actual destination.

I get that crap all the time. I just forward the text of it to Blizzard and delete the e-mail itself afterwards.

I've gotten 1 of these every day for the last 2 months or so, i have forwarded a number of them to hacks@blizzard.com mostly i just delete them. The funny thing is the email address the scammers send this to isnt the one i have tied to Diablo 3.

If you opened it you should also run a virus scan .A lot of them have viruses attached to you just opening them you don't even have to reply to get hacked.

As someone before said, anyone over the age of 12 should know to look at the address bar when they click a link. Obviously a legitimate blizzard link would take you to either blizzard.com or battle.net.

Seems like most of the posts in this forum are just PEBKAC.

What good would it do considering Blizzard01 is still spamming people in the in-game chat rooms? Everyone knows he's been reported a few hundred times.

How spambots work:

1. Create a character named Blizzard01 on a compromised account.

2. Spam chat.

3. Delete character when it's muted and/or account is banned.

4. Repeat steps 1-3.
