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 ?

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.
