I recieved the following email this morning, which I confirmed is a hoax on the wowforums. It is possible they got the email address from this site, which will mean others may have a similar email coming their way. Delete that sucker...

Message as follows:

Account Action: 3 Hour Suspension

Account Offense: Violation of EULA and Terms of Service - Transfer of Account Ownership

Details: An investigation of your World of Warcraft account has found strong evidence that the account in question is being sold or traded. In accordance with EULA section 4, Paragraph B, listed below:

World of Warcraft -> Legal -> End User License Agreement

and Section 8 of the Terms of Use:

Blizzard Entertainment -> Legal -> Terms of Use

A 3-hour probationary suspension is pending on this account, awaiting confirmation from a specialist. A warning has been issued. The investigation will be continued by the Account Administration team to determine the any further suspensions. If the account in question is found in violation of the EULA and Terms of Use, further action will be taken. Be aware that any additional inappropriate actions may result in the permanent closure of the account.

Thank you for respecting our position on this matter.

=========================================================

In these cases the Account Administration team will require faxed receipt of ID materials before releasing the account for play.

oh, and for future reference, if one of these emails appears to send you to the website for a region other than the one you play on (say you play on US servers, and the email sends you to the wow-europe.com site), it usually is a scam.

On top of this folks, there's been some Pharmaceutical spam sightings as of this morning which are popping up.

Please for the love of all things feathered do NOT click on any of those links. We'll be getting rid of them as fast as we can see them, but, in the event we accidentally miss one or aren't on, please just hit the red biohazard on the offending post, or send myself or foofy a PM directly. I check my email a large amount these days, and any PM I receive goes straight to said email, and I'll see it pretty quickly.

Thanks!
