    Once I saw different email domain names on email address that that was the big 1st flag. Then yes, acct PW & CD key along with secret Quest & Ans. was the next flag. Gotta love clowns like this, like ya said, too bad major fraud / Company impersonation charges couldn't be brought up against people like this.

    When you're looking at the domain name in the actual e-mail, it's really hard to distinguish differences. I got an e-mail just like that one, several months ago, and I could not find an error for the life of me. I knew it was fake, on the sole fact that I had never attempted to sell or trade my account, though. So I forwarded it to Blizzard's hacked accounts address.

    Subject: World of Warcraft - Account Verification

    To:

    Greetings,

    An investigation of your World of Warcraft account has found strong evidence that the account in question is being sold or traded. As you may not be aware of, this conflicts with Blizzard's EULA under section 4 Paragraph B which can be found here: WoW -> Legal -> End User License Agreement
    and Section 8 of the Terms of Use found here:
    WoW -> Legal -> Terms of Use

    The investigation will be continued by Blizzard administration to determine the action to be taken against your account. If your account is found violating the EULA and Terms of Use, your account can, and will be suspended/closed/or terminated.
    In order to keep this from occurring, you should immediately verify that you are the original owner of the account.

    To verify your identity please visit the following webpage:
    <removed for safety>
    Only Account Administration will be able to assist with account retrieval issues. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter, and your continued interest in World of Warcraft.


    Sincerely,

    Account Administration
    Blizzard Entertainment


    That's the exact e-mail I got. The url I removed was a link to a "woweurope" website, which was the only flag other than knowing I didn't ever attempt to sell or trade it. I obviously don't live in Europe, so why would I visit a website for the European version of WoW?
