Here is a c&p of the most recent phishing attempt email I received (this morning). Good thing that there is still some broken engrish. But this made me wonder how many casual players get their accounts jacked when they get these things mailed to them. I'm afraid to guess, but I would speculate that many fall for it.
To me, theft is theft, no matter if the item in question is tangible, or digital. I would think that since you sign (click) your life away on the eula and tos, that the true 'owner' could prosecute en-mass the people who run these scams. But suing a foreign entity, in their own country is rather difficult I assume.
