I am also very careful and never fall for phishing scams, but I got a message from SE stating that they noticed a strange computer/location trying to login or change password on my account.
At that time I was in game. I made sure it was a legit e-mail and confirmed it came from SE.
So, it said my account will be frozen until I click their link to update my account info(password). I logged out of the game and tried to login, sure enough wouldn't work. So that also confirmed they froze my account until I did what they said.
I went to the link provided in the e-mail, changed my password and logged back in and nothing bad happened to my account in the end.
Why? I use the one-time password and that stopped the hacking attempt.
USE ONE OF THESE IN EVERY MMO YOU PLAY AND YOU WILL NEVER BE HACKED!!!!
You can even use them through your cell phone for most games.
It is 2013, get with the times and use the features provided by the game makers to protect your account. They put them there just for this reason.
GAME TIL YOU DIE!!!!
