WARNING: Fake MoP "Beta Invitation" email

stragen001stragen001 ReadingPosts: 1,720Member

Just received this email APPARENTLY from newsletter@email.blizzard.net although that is probably spoofed.

It looks pretty authentic, so beware! I know this is a fake because:

1) I have never given the email address this was sent to to blizzard

2) They are trying to get you to goto highly dodgy links. Hovering over either the link which is apparently to http://www.battle.net or the link which is apparently to "play free now" will send you to:

http://www.worldofwarcxaft.tk/cert/login.asp?ref=https://us.battle.net/account/management2Findex.xml&app=bam

As you can see. This is NOT a legit link. Be Warned. DONT GO THERE

    Just got the email.  It is fake.

    The link opens up http://us.battle.net.pamdariai-beta.com/gm/d3.html?cr=true&ref=http%3A%2F%2F%2Faccount%2F&app=wam which looks almost convincing except that if it were real, Pandaria wouldn't be spelled incorrectly, and a realistic link could have been pandaria-beta.us.battle.net

    So delete it.  You were not invited.

    I got it as well, almost clicked on it, then thought hmm. Went ot warcraft account, nope I'm not even listed in their beta offerings :)

    But it does indeed look legit.

     

    Quit worrying about other players in a game and just play.

    Just got one of these. They've changed the links. I Imagine they're doing a lot of this now because of the D3 launch. Header says it's from a yahoo email address.

    just a tip, never use comcast email, it sucks, it marks battlenet official mails spam, never stops the real scam emails

    I gotta win, i mean it wow gold auction house
