World of Warcraft e-mail scam

We're all familiar with e-mail scams by this point of the century, the most famous of which are African princes and princesses claiming to have billions of dollars in locked down banks and that they'll share it to you if you give them your bank info. Sounds genuine back then right?


Well anyway, I recently received an e-mail from "Blizzard.com" (notice the quotation marks) informing me that there was a change in their policy from thefts and that my password was changed. Thing is, I'm not even a World of Warcraft player. I almost half-believed the e-mail if it weren't for Firefox. Jumped from the website after it's been branded by Firefox as a fraud site. Actual e-mail scam below:

I wonder how they even got my e-mail address now that it's not listed here anymore. You can check out the World of Warcraft-slash-Blizzard fraud site if you like, but remember: Curiosity kills the cat.

'Till my next installment.
