Yeah, its pretty elaborate and the links in the email itself probably lead to a faux Blizzard site. This showed up in my junk folder and I exited out and actually logged onto Diablo III to see if my account was suspended and it wasn't. Thinking of forwarding it to Blizzard, but I doubt it would do any good.

Wow. The grammar in this one isn't TOO bad.

I get about 3-5 of these a day between WoW, D3, and GW2.

Bartle.net and World of Wareraft are my two favorites.

You mean that Bartle.net isn't legit? OH NOO! I've been haxed.

Thanks for the heads up. Just verified my account at WWW.Bottle.net/accntverify. What now? Gee, I hope I don't get banned.

I get them regularly from "Blizzard" and "Battlenet". Invitations for MoP beta, stating my account has been hacked, that details have been changed on my account, that my account has been associated with suspicious activity. I just ignore them all, but I do cringe that I might have ACTUALLY been sent an invitation to the beta and disregarded it. I'd much rather check out the expansion for free if possible, than have to pay for it and hate it like I did Cata.

If you were invited to beta, then you would see it in your battle.net account settings where you can download the clients. I speak from experience, because that's how I learned that I was tapped for the MoP beta.

Edit: To answer your unasked question, MoP does seem better than Cata but not as good as Frozen Throne.

I'll have to log in and check then, if I can find my authentacitor.

There other MMOs to play. :-)

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 1, 2012 1:43:41 PM PDT
I know I want to try GW2, but money is not my friend these days. It hates me, and leaves my hands as fast as possible.

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 1, 2012 3:58:18 PM PDT
There are some F2P MMO's, either in Steam or with the upcoming TOR going F2P you might consider that. That would free up 12-15 dollars a month for increasing your budget to purchase GW2 which has no monthly fee.

Pole dancing...

I figure I can convince you if I keep bringing it up!

We just got my wife her own account today so we can play together.

Maybe in a few weeks, I have a kid's birthday and a high school reunion to pay for first!

I should go give them my non-existent Battle.net account info! I love it when they send me these since I don't have an account.

You bumped the thread for this?

I'd rather do a non-lethal takedown, put the body in a large trash recepticle and close the lid so that nobody is alerted.
