Afternoon all,

Just a quick warning, I received an email today which got past my spam filters about my account settings being changed. Admittedly I almost fell for it until I checked the link they where asking me to go to.

So if you get an email titled “ account – Account change notice” with the following info within the email.

Q u o t e:
This is an automated notification regarding your account. Some or all of your contact information was recently modified through the Account Management website.

*** If you made recent account changes, please disregard this automatic notification.

*** If you did NOT make any changes to your account, we recommend you log in to Account Management review your account settings.

If you cannot sign into Account Management using the link above, or if unauthorized changes continue to happen, please contact Blizzard Billing & Account Services for further assistance.

Billing & Account Services can be reached at 1-800-59-BLIZZARD (1-800-592-5499 Mon-Fri, 8AM-8PM Pacific Time) or at

Account security is solely the responsibility of the accountholder. Please be advised that in the event of a compromised account, Blizzard representatives will typically lock the account. In these cases the Account Administration team will require faxed receipt of ID materials before releasing the account for play.

I’m probably telling you how to suck eggs but its Just a heads up to be careful and never click on links within an email.


(edit) - It was a hyper link disguised under "account management"
