New Real ID Scam

Early this month, our blog covered a type of scam where criminal gangs would want you believe that you were involved in some sort of ‘account violation’. It’s a pretty clever scam that duped a lot of players– hence the Blizzard warning you see every time you log-in!

A new scam that I came across recently relates to Battle.net’s Real Id program. The email closely resembles an official announcement– with usual info on the Real ID program. EXCEPT IT’S A SCAM!

If you receive one of these emails, DISREGARD IT and DO NOT open the attachment as instructed.

This is a phishing scam designed to attack your computer.
