I read too many people making threads about how they were hacked and wow support was the pits.

I got an email today. Apparently my contact info was changed and i was conviniently provided a link to verify it.

I didn't use the provided link to check it and it turns out my account info was not changed.

Don't belive everything you see. No matter how legit it may seem when it comes to your account security. Just don't take chances and assume the worse.

    I loved it when they sent me tells like that. It gave me an chance to make sure I still knew how to spell many different swear words. Then I would just spam the hell out of whoever sent that tell to me. Sometimes I could get them to log off if I was persistent enough.
