I would like to apologize for the sheer volume of phishing emails I'm unable to forward to you.
You see, I get at the LEAST a half dozen of these a day. Sometimes closer to 10. To my primary email. Which is not my battle.net email. Unfortunately, I never got spam on this email account until I used it to sign up for Curse and a few other websites related to gaming. I'm not sure which is the culprit, but it's alright. I also get notices for game I do not have accounts for, such as Runescape.
That noted, I cannot send the vast majority of these to you. I decided to try to send the 5 I got this morning, but when I went to forward the second one to you, my email provider, Yahoo!, decided to flag my account for suspicious activity.. again.
This is getting annoying. Basically, because I have multiple emails to send to the same address, all of which contain malicious links, I get my account flagged for sending "bad" emails. Despite a company policy that requests we do so.
I emailed their support department and gave them a link to your policy on phishing emails, but if you guys could possibly contact them and do anything about this, it'd be nice. I'm not even sure if that's possible.
I also am not sure this is the only email provider to do this. Gmail does not do this. My Suddenlink email(ISP) would not do this. My old Comcast email did not do this. They should be able to flag the email address as allowing said "bad" emails. Besides, I highly doubt phishers are going to send email to this address, outing them. Hell, I've had my account flagged after attempting to send the FIRST email about it.
This is highly frustrating, especially when I'm trying to do you guys a solid and report this crap.
Best thing, most of the new ones I'm getting are MoP beta invites and D3 account action flags. Which are amusing.
Yet, my actual battle.net email is clean and devoid of spam. It's glorious. If I did not have this address for 7 years, and have everyone mailing me at this email, including folks that I haven't heard back from in quite some time(a friend of mine with kidney failure in Sweden I worry about constantly in particular) I'd have closed the email ages ago BECAUSE of the spam.
This isn't the first time I've posted about this. It's been a common theme for well over a year now. 48 hour email suspension for forwarding phishing attempts. GG Yahoo, GG.
