Diablo® III

Blizzard Notification

I just had a blizzard notification from feng_juwei@yahoo.com that claimed I was using hacks, etc.. then it wants me to log into a link titled http://us.blizzard.com/support/article/securitywebform
I HAVE NEVER USED HACKS OR CHEATS! That clearly takes away from any challenge. Is this a fishing site? Has anybody else received this notice? It says that if I avoid this email that my account will be closed permanently! WTF??????

Yes, that is a phishing site and a fake email. Blizzard will NEVER threaten you and ask you to verify information. They ban you first and then you get to appeal. I hope you did not click on that link or you likely have malware on your PC. You can forward the email, with headers intact, to hacks@blizzard.com and then delete it.
