Phishing Scam

Posted by Suzie Ford on Jun 20, 2011  | Comments

Phishing Scam - MMORPG.com

RuneScape developers have confirmed that a very legitimate looking email is being sent to players that is, in reality, a phishing scam. The email indicates that the recipient has received an infraction for the use of macros and tells them to click a link to review the issue. Therein lies the problem.

It's a scam, Jagex has informed Eurogamer. "This isn't legit and is indeed a Phising site," a spokesperson told us.

Therefore, you don't need to review the evidence on a website as the email suggests. But you might consider throwing the email in the bin.
