Yep. It's a phish. If Blizz thought you were doing wrong things, they'd suspend/ban first and notify you afterwards.

Just report and block them.
you chose not to mention the phisher's name but you chose post the phishing link? edit it out

everyone knows it's blizzard01 anyway.

This is an attempted scam, so I strongly suggest you do not follow any of those links, since they might infect your PC with malicious programs (like keyloggers or Trojans). The best thing to do is use the right click > Report Spam or Report Harassment option.

It is also a good idea to avoid publicly posting those links since other accounts could be compromised as a result. We know a lot of players want to help others by warning them about these sorts of things, but reporting that behavior is enough, and additionally exposing those links only helps the scammers.

^^^The latter before the former, im afraid to say.
Doesn't matter, if that scammer is not banned I will think he works for Bliz for sure to be legit.
My lord do people not understand what a scam looks like?

OP look up gullible in the dictionary

To be fair, some gamers are just people that don't surround themselves in the nuances of a game, especially when it comes to knowing or understanding all the various scams.

Some people are just legitimate, extremely casual players that you know, just want to play a game and have never needed to concern themselves with this stuff.

Pat yourselves for being hardcore badasses, then get over yourselves.
