Heya Staunch,

Glad you did not visit the link, please do not add them on your post, others may click on it without reading what it is.

You should always check the email headers of the emails you receive from us, here is some information that can show you how to verify if an email is legit or not.

    http://us.blizzard.com/support/article/25133

    What should I look for in the header?

    Email headers contain information about the sender (who sent the email message), the path the email took to reach your inbox, and things that may have happened to the email before arriving. This information is very important and can be used to determine whether or not an email is malicious.

    Once you've accessed an email's header information, you'll want to attempt to verify the sending address. To do this, look at the «Return–Path» or the «originating address» for the email. For most phishing emails, the email address displayed in this location will differ from the address displayed in the «From» field.

      A legitimate header from Blizzard Entertainment should look something like this:

      X–SID–PRA noreply@blizzard.com

      or

      Return–Path: < noreply@blizzard.com >

      Received: from smtp01.worldofwarcraft.com ([XX.XXX.XXX.XXX]) by…

      Received: from … by smtp01.worldofwarcraft.com …

      for <Your Email Address>; Tue, 29 Jan 2008 10:46:05 GMT

      From: noreply@blizzard.com

      To: You’re Email Address

    Please forward the email to hacks@blizzard.com , at your earliest convenience. When forwarding the email, copy and paste the entire email header into the message body to ensure that we are able to identify the source. This information will help us prevent future phishing emails of the same type.

I'm not sure if this is the place to post it, but it seemed like it fit the best. I recently received a warning from the e–mail address wowgm@blizzard.com which contained the following text:

It was actually until i was about to post in this forum asking if it was real that i believed it. Then i went to copy/paste the links it has in it to make sure they were legitimate and found out the link hidden behind the «here» in the second paragraph actually links here:

[removed]

Which is clearly not a blizzard site.

If this actually is a real misconduct e–mail, please tell me. But as far as i can tell, it's a rather well–done spam e–mail. I haven't clicked the link, and i suggest anyone reading this avoids going to that website… i don't know what horrors lurk there, but it uses that ref=__ trick to make it look like the World of Warcraft website.

Probably steals your password or something.
