Wait...what ?! : ("Blizzard" issues)

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
So I have received 4 emails from ''blizzard entertainment'' saying that I should login into my battlenet account to check something and if I dont do it that they will close my account in 48 hours, however the sender goes by the name wowaccountadmin@blizzard.com, which is silly since why would a WOW admin be messaging me about my battlenet account ? 2 emails were from this sender.
The third one was from donotreply@blizzard.com saying that my WoW character ( I havent touched WoW in god knows how many years) got stolen or something is in danger of getting his items snagged, which is retarded btw since I did not play the expansions and what would they do with some low **** equipment, the link was the same, that I should login to some battlenet verification site (wololol keylogger)
The fourth one was from noreply@battle.net, saying that my battlenet account has been locked due to suspicious activity lol and that I should contact and check in with them. It obviously hasnt been locked...

All this crap has links to some ****ty site which is obviously a keylogger or some sort of similar thing.

So anyway, did anyone else get such messages recently ? I think I remember reading one post here where the poster said that he also received some weird blizzard message saying that his account will get closed in 48 hours.

Yeah i get them quite often, i just ignore them. It wasn't too bad until i got the Curse client to manage my addons, big mistake. To anyone who still uses it, delete it immediately, it is compromised.

DO not click any, these are all hacker/keylogger emails delete and forget.
I must get 10 a month at the moment.
stay away from emails that ask you to verify your account or ask you to enter anything.

If it puts your mind at ease log into your account but browse to battle.net yourself.

It's not from @worldofwarcraft.com or @blizzard.com

They are from another address "on behalf" of those above. If you use something like outlook it will tell you who it is really from.

Just a scam to steal your info, ignore them. I get about 10 a day. They do directly to my spam so I never have to see them.

Just another note to anyone who doesn't know this. If you're not sure, simply right click the link and look up the properties. It'll tell you where the link is really gonna take you.

I've also been getting emails from them(lots of 'em), although propably not from Blizzard themselves. Closed my WoW years ago.
