My WoW account, “can and will be disabled”, apparently

Oh noes! I’ve just read an email that says my World of Warcraft account could be permanantly deleted if I don’t confirm my, “personal information along with concealed information” at an address…

Just a couple of problems with that;

  1. What exactly does conflict with the EULA and ToA?
  2. I don’t have, have ever had or ever want a WoW account.
  3. Oh look, WoT (Web of Trust) has put a red circle by the link which doesn’t look good… ah, that’s why, it doesn’t link to battle.net at all you naughty phisher you, it goes to http://www.worldofwarcraft-battle-account.net/account/support/login-support.htm instead.

As you can probably tell, the email is a fake and just a pathetic attempt to obtain World of Warcraft account details. If you don’t have an account, just delete it, if you do have a WoW account, just delete it. You can see in the image that it went straight to the spam folder of GMail (the address it was sent to isn’t a GMail address though), so it should be pretty obvious that it’s best to ignore it and delete it without even thinking about it. 🙂

Disclaimer: the link in this post is not clickable, if anyone copies and pastes (or even types) the url into the address bar, visits the website and enters personal information, then you are very stupid indeed and should not be allowed within 50 yards of the internet. The link is for information only, usage of it is at your own risk.
