Battle net WoW Account Scam Email

Posted in : game, gaming, video game on by : Tips Of Tech

I keep getting these emails all of the time. Funny thing is, the scams keep going to my email address that I really did register my battle.net account up for. Why is blizzard or battle.net passing out my email address like this ?

 

 

Greetings,

An investigation of your World of Warcraft account has found strong evidence that the account in question is being sold or traded. As you may not be aware of, this conflicts with Blizzard\’s EULA under section 4 Paragraph B which can be found here: WoW -> Legal -> End User License Agreement and Section 8 of the Terms of Use found here:
WoW -> Legal -> Terms of Use

The investigation will be continued by Blizzard administration to determine the action to be taken against your account. If your account is found violating the EULA and Terms of Use, your account can, and will be suspended/closed/or terminated.
In order to keep this from occurring, you should immediately verify that you are the original owner of the account.

Click on the link below to verify your Battle.net account e-mail address:

Account security is solely the responsibility of the account holder. Please be advised that in the event of a compromised account, Blizzard representatives will typically lock the account. In these cases the Account Administration team will require faxed receipt of ID materials before releasing the account for play.

Sincerely,
The Battle.net Account Team

The battle.net link above is real, but it was masked over the real link which was
“http://us.battle.net.zh-tay.in/login.html?app=wam&ref=https://www.worldofwarcraft.com/account/&eor=0&app=bam”
Now. If you look at that link in a glance, it could fool anyone. But if you are not one to be fooled or have ever heard of a phishing scam, you know this is a cheap trick. and it probably works, often.

Since I keep getting these scam email trying to get me to give up my battle net account name and password. I am going to quit reporting them to Blizzard and battle.net hoping they are handling and wondering why it keeps happening. I will leave these scam emails out here for you people to raise enough fuss to get battle.net to actually pursue legal action on people committing theft. Maybe they are shutting down the scam sites. Maybe… but they clearly are not catching the people involved. So. for every email I get, I will make a new post.
You don’t want to protect my content better with legal action? then I don’t want to protect you by doing my part the way you say.
GET BENT!
