Greetings,

We have determined that the World of Warcraft account NACMACFEEGLE has been accessed/compromised by someone not authorized to do so by the World of Warcraft Terms of Use (http://eu.blizzard.com/company/legal/index.html).

To protect your privacy and security, we have temporarily disabled this account. Any recurring subscriptions have been suspended to prevent further monetary charges. In order to regain access to the account, you must complete the steps below to secure the account and your computer.

Please keep this email for your reference until the account recovery process has been completed.

STEP 1: SECURE THE ACCOUNT, YOUR COMPUTER AND YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS

We highly recommend that you follow the below steps to protect yourself and the account from unauthorized third party access.
- Use up-to-date firewall, antivirus, and anti-spyware software to scan your system regularly for viruses, Trojans, and key-loggers.
- Keep your operating system and other software up-to-date and be careful when downloading new software.
- Be wary of "spoof" and scam websites and e-mails that pose as Blizzard Entertainment and request account or personal information. As a reminder, Blizzard Entertainment representatives will *never* ask you for your password.
- Keep your login information confidential. Account access can only be shared with one minor of whom you are the parent or guardian. Sharing access with anyone else is a violation of the game's Terms of Use. You are also responsible for every use of an account on which you are listed as the registered player, whether the use was authorized or not.
- Use separate, unique passwords for your email, World of Warcraft, and any other online accounts.
- Change your passwords regularly and keep World of Warcraft account information updated using the Account Management page at http://eu.battle.net/account

For additional security tips and information, please visit the following sites:
- Account Security: http://eu.blizzard.com/support/article/36070
- Unauthorized Account Access Policy: http://eu.blizzard.com/support/article/22455

If you are looking for an added layer of security, we currently offer the Blizzard Authenticator, an optional device that can help prevent unauthorized account access. For more information about how the Authenticator works or how to add one to a World of Warcraft account, please visit the Blizzard Authenticator FAQ at http://eu.blizzard.com/support/article/36010.

STEP 2: RECOVER THE ACCOUNT

We now provide a secure website for you to verify that you have taken the appropriate steps to secure the account, your computer, and your email address. Please go to this site and follow the instructions:
http://eu.blizzard.com/support/webform.xml

STEP 3: VERIFY YOUR SUBMISSION WAS RECEIVED

We will contact you with further instructions once we have received and processed your submission. If you do not receive a reply within 48 hours of submitting this form, please resend it from the address listed above.

Please be aware that if unauthorized access to this account continues after the recovery process is complete, it may lead to further action against the account. For more information, please review the World of Warcraft Terms of Use (http://eu.blizzard.com/company/legal/index.html).

Regards,

Phishing ...... Most companies hardly ever send you emails with links, they will ask you to log into your account through the official site. I always mouse-over links to reveal its true URL. See this example of mouse-over (watch your status bar for real URL): http://www-this-is-totally-safe.com

The best way is to login via the official website and check your account.

Yep,that is a scam mail if anything is,i get those a couple of times per week on my non official email along with other copy and pasted mails that someone who actually have been banned,or which they have lifted off the official site as an example where they actually forgot to change certain details in the mail thinking that it will fool someone,and unfortunally it does,still.

even if you have a battlenet account and dont have the Key Author digipass thingie,you can still be hacked,and if you actually log in to a site like that and enter all your details you are screwed,basically.

That is because they are copied from real letters,from someone actually under investigation,edited slightly to fit their needs and voila,atleast one or two falls for it.

Remember 1 rule
You do not talk about FIGHT CLUB.
2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about FIGHT CLUB.

3rd RULE: If someone says "stop" or goes limp, taps out the fight is over.

4th RULE: Only two guys to a fight.

5th RULE: One fight at a time.

6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes.

7th RULE: Fights will go on as long as they have to.

8th RULE: If this is your first night at FIGHT CLUB, you HAVE to fight.

Oh wait...
