I’m fed up with the scammer emails. Let me show you an example, and point out the mistakes.

Edit: DO NOT GO TO THESE SITES AND THEN BLAME ME IF ANYTHING HAPPENS…

Here we go:

Due to suspicious activity, you the Battle.net account  has (I’m a Battle.net account? Oh joy! I’ve always wanted to be  a web server) been locked. To restore access to this account, please follow these steps:

Step 1: Secure Your Computer

In the event that your computer has been infected with malicious software such as a keylogger or trojan, simply changing your password may not deter future attacks without first ensuring that your computer is free from these programs. Please visit our Account Security website to learn how to secure your computer from unauthorized access.

(this is pretty good— secure yourself from this and them give us your password omnomnomnom)

Step 2: Secure Your E-mail Account

After you have secured your computer, please create a new password for your e-mail account since it may also be compromised. Be sure to check your e-mail filters and rules and look for any e-mail forwarding rules that you did not create. For more information on securing your e-mail account, visit this Support page.

(This is also a step you should take if this ACTUALLY HAPPENED)

Step 3: Choose a New Password

You must change your password in order to resume using this Battle.net account. Please click this link to choose a new password:

(Now go to the site that doesn’t look suspicious at all gosh)

*Note that your former password no longer grants access to Battle.net account management, World of Warcraft, or any other login-protected Battle.net account service. (Um, ambiguous much? Is this just…. from once you get the email, or once you reset it? O.o)

If you still have questions or concerns after following the steps above, feel free to contact Customer Support at http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?locale=en_US&articleId=20606.
