So during this day I've received several mails from "" very authentic, as you can see. The email is like following: Account - Account Change Notice

This looks pretty true, except I suspected these mails. Nothing has been changed, and I have never used any links to go into websites to check my account. I have always straightly written to my browser. Not to mention I've created a password that is a mix of numbers and both capital letters and small ones, and my PC is clean.

Also, this mail has an option to look the html-part of the message, which I have not done nor I will. After first message I started to get a realm spam of thee mails during this evening, within past few hours.

What I do wish to make sure, is whether these are false messages or not, as I got no way of knowing absolutely sure, and if I did not know better of possibilities around the web, I would also believe it blindly. Atleast on the first time.

I used the options on my mail to see the source of the message, but there is no mention of wowadmin, blizzard or any other relatively related to blizzard or wow named address in it. Can I assume from that alone that it is not authentic?
