I have received probably 1-2 WoW scam mails per week lately and I have not even played the game since 2006.
They are different but yet quite similar. I wonder whoever is making those thinks that if people do not fall for one that they would do that for one that is very similar?


I am always amazed when I hear about people getting taken by scams. I can not, for the life of me, understand how anyone can see through these things but then again I guess my skeptical nature and the fact that I've worked as an IT for more than 20 years just naturally insulates me.


All of the World of Warcraft account phishing spam are coming from Hotmail's servers - Gee thanks Microsoft!

I got a new version of a scam too which are also very similar. I don't guess they're thinking about it too much. Just hitting the same mail list over and over. Like you said, if I didn't fall for the first one, why would I fall for the other.

@PeZzy - Really??? Dang.


"peak" != "peek"... ;)

Yeah, I recently got a scammer email for a WoW account I never actually activated. It was just a trial... three years ago. It made me wonder if they were just carpet bombing hotmail accounts instead of known Blizzard customers.

It really was laughably bad. The URL looked half decent (albeit with a 1 instead of an l... sneaky leetspeak), but the email itself was just... inept.
