This is actual a tactic frequently used by gold farmers that hack accounts in WoW. They steal the account and then place an authenticator on it, preventing the user from logging in and changing passwords. When this happens, the person that owns the account has to go through a somewhat lengthy procedure with Blizzard to verify that they are the owner of the account (It ultimately involves sending them a copy of some form of ID).
Its pretty much impossible to avoid this happening, and honestly, if one is foolish enough to both not have the authenticator AND give away their account details through phishing websites, I don't really feel much sympathy for them.
