Check which email they are sending it to. I have an email that I only use for the game, on a completely different host. That makes it easier to see how the scammers/hackers got the email. Tend to use different email hosts for different things.
My damn dirty dwarf of a friend got one too. I told em to be careful but he wouldn't listen. Now he's stuck working in a chinese sweatshop like the small hairy asian he is.
Just got one also...I use this email just for blizzard though. -.-

It can still be gotten- for example if you use that computer to open a browser and go to your account management page for example. Etc.

These are all fairly obvious scam emails. I'm glad to hear people are able to identify that pretty easily.

There will always be malicious people trying to trick you into giving them your account information so its great to be able to identify these scams. We have more information about these kinds of things here.
