Default Re: Has my Battle.Net account been hacked?

Yeah I received that too. I don't have a WOW account but I do have battlenet though. Pity the ones who fell for that. Grandmas and furry little rabbits.

99.99% of any e-mail you get from "blizzard" is a scam. If you did not make a change then a change did not happen. If something did **** up and your account dosnt work when you try to log on you can contact blizzard and they WILL fix it.

Anything blizzard would contact you for can be seen on your account managment page.

dont fall for any of that crap.

never click a link to get to blizzards site.


I get about 10-15 emails a day from "blizzard" with all these account changes I have made to my account that has not been active for 5 months and requires a authentication key.

I get heaps of blizzard emails and I don't even have a damn battle.net account or any account on blizzard games. 95% are marked as spam but some slip through the cracks from time to time.

I didn't fall for it. I checked my account and theres no mention of the transfer. I just asked a question because someone might have gotten access to my battle.net account, it has happened before.

Good man. $6 for a secure account is very cheap to pay. Plus you get a corehound pup.
