They always send emails from a fake email, using an alternative name to look "legit", I still don't get it how can people fall for these emails, whenever I get one I know someone wants my acc and it's just fake. As soon I read the "We are sorry to inform you that we noticed you try to sell gold/sell your account etc" I know already that's it's a complete bs phishing mail. Games never send such email, at least I never experienced.

I've had thousands of these e-mails on my Hotmail account. Also from Diablo three and other MMO's. Thing is, I always register them on my Gmail. So I know most are fake.

However I do have to say some of these e-mails are well written, try to look for spelling/grammar errors. But as Nifar said, games never send such emails.

yeah, of course not. and still some people fall for them...if no one would fall for them, the practice would be obselete, right?
This here is so far the most convincing i have seen over the years, so i thought i raise the awareness-level a bit.... of course you two dont need it...

I always look very carefully when I get such e-mails. It's usually not hard to tell if it's legit or not by paying very close attention, especially to where the return link REALLY goes.

What I find funny is when I get e-mails telling me my Warcraft account is in trouble... I've never played WoW! Hehe.

I actually have yet to get any of those emails.Maybe it's cause this is the first MMO I've ever played, or it has went straight to the Junk folder without me realizing it. But I knew this sort of thing wasn't impossible, so it's nice to receive the memo to watch out.
