  As you may already know, many e-mails are sent out daily hoping to scam you into putting your account info into a fradulent site, thus stealing your account info and possibly more. I have put together a small list that may help you protect yourself with two simple tips.                                                                                                                              

  •    First, never open any suspicious e-mail URL links from Blizzard. They will never ask you to "verify" yourself, link you to their website, or ask you to type in your account details. You can usually tell the e-mail is a fake when you hover your mouse over the site and it instead shows on the bottom of your browser something similar, but not the actual site. I.E.


  •   Secondly, if you are not sure that the e-mail is a fake you can do two simple things. Type the actual website into your browser yourself, log into your account and change the password. Next, you can then find the customer support number on the legitimate Blizzard site. You can then call them and ask them the status of your account.

With these easy tips you should be able to avoid this particular phishing scam.

Remember, check every URL you click.

  If you have anything to add, please feel free to respond to this thread. If you simply have a question concerning an e-mail you have recieved that you might think is fraudulent, feel free to ask it here and I or another helpful player will assist you as soon as possible.

Thank you.

These tips are not just good for WoW, but for any email, period.

Imbedded URLs in emails should NEVER be clicked on.

I have an email that I only used  for when they were giving members beta keys. My email is blocked from other members seeing it. I belive that the people running sell peoples emails or it might just be them scamming, I have no clue. On this email I get about ten or more phishing emails a day. Some of these phishing emails are from MMO's that I do not play such as Aion, WoW and a few others.


My friend is a WoW player and when I have gone to his house to hang out, he shows me how the asians hack WoW and spell out a phishing websites outside the auction house using many accounts of sleeping characters. I think that little kids for the most part fall for these phishing scams.


You would think that MMO's have been out long enough for the game developers to take leagal action and the cheaters, scammers would think twice before doing so. I guess not.

No way is this really from Blizzard, true it is a great concern to many people who play this game. Strange thing is this didn't happen until I switched onto the newer account, because they show your email instead of a user name, this is where the Phishing e-mails started and it's starting to tick me off. =<

you can thank Blizzard for all this spam.  I get about 150 of these e-mails a day. The switch to bnet accounts which use your e-mail as log in was the dumbest idea ever.  I still get these e-mails, and my account was hacked not even 24 hours after I switched it over to the bnet account...good going Blizzard!


It wouldn't be so bad if Blizzard would restore my account.  All my characters were deleted by the hacker (***HOLE!), I e-mailed and called Blizzard, but when I called, they were "investigating" it.  I still haven't heard anything back from them.  So much for my 8 level 80s and 6 years of work lol.  Blizzard changed my password for me, but that doesn't help get characters back. Then to make things even worse, I get an e-mail from Blizzard (official, I called them about it), saying that my account has been banned for suspicious activities, yeah no ****, hackers stole all my stuff and deleted my characters, and used them to spam in trade chat for thier website.  One of my guildmates saw it and has it in a chat log that I got from him.../rant  sorry it just makes me so mad,  I don't even know how they got my password, I never answer an e-mail unless I'm expecting it from someone I know.  And if it's something important like the ban e-mail, I call the company it's from...k i'll stop now before I get banned here hehe

I've been getting regular emails stating that my Battlenet account is compromised and asking me to log in and verify it. Of course the emails have convenient links in them which I have completely ignored.

In fact, I went and checked my account on a different computer making sure to surf to the BNET directly and everything was in order.  Went ahead and set up the authenticator for my son's account and will be ignoring all emails regarding my account going forward.

In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

I still get Cataclysm beta phish mails from time to time.

If you are going to try and scam people at least try to be professional about it and keep the content of the emails up to date and relevant.

I receive WoW phishing mails on an emailaccount that isnt tied to any game. Recently I noticed that some of them are actually using good English. But the hyperlinks still use very obviously fake domains.

I dont think so. I think it works like any other spam. They find your email adres somewhere and it gets used in the hope you have a WoW account. The cause can be completely unrelated to Blizzard I think.
