WoW Phishing

by

Ugh, so I encountered my first WoW garbage today oddly enough minutes after I made a post that I had subbed to the game. At least I know that WoW scammers read my site. Anyway, I received an email stating this:

Hello,

Blizzard Entertainment recently received a request to change the e-mail address used to log in to the Battle.net account with the username myemail@wowsucker.com. The e-mail address y***@hotmail.com has been specified as the new username for this Battle.net account. An email has been sent to this new address containing a verification link to complete the change.

Once the new address has been verified, the e-mail address myemail@wowsucker.com can no longer be used to log in to this Battle.net account or any World of Warcraft accounts merged with this Battle.net account.

If you did not initiate this request, please click here to check your login e-mail address immediately.

Sincerely,
The Battle.net Account Team

Normally I am pretty savvy and can spot a scam a mile away, but today I must have been drunk or something…so I click on the link and then input my email address and, oh it pains me to say it, my password too. Just then I realize…I am stupid…really stuPID. Luckily the email account the scammer used was not the account I use for battle.net, but i went around and changed the passwords on all my accounts that I could think of anyway. Not more than five minutes later though a similar email did show up in the pertinent account. Is this how it is with WoW? I hope not. Ugh.

      so far so good…I immediately changed the password…I still can’t believe I fell for that…I guess I was a little distracted as I was at work at the time. I just logged in with no problem…I’ll keep an eye on my CC though.
