  1. I just got this email from a supposed WOW Blizzard department. Whatever you do, do not follow any links, it will upload a virus to your pc

    Even though I don't play WoW, thanks for looking out for the community who do play that game.

    It's a shame they only send those out for the popular games that have television commercials to advertise.

    I try to keep my emails separate one for a game/account, one for forums, some for random sign-ups, and some I actually read! The only account I get these WOW phish attempts from is the one linked to my stratics articles which is viewable on websites.
     
  5. I did a whois on the url and got a melbourne it host with no email address on their site other than filling out a form. I was going to let them know that someone hosting on their servers is scamming
