Born At Night

I've gotten 3 emails during the past week about an Account Investigation into my account. It took me about 3 nanoseconds to figure out they were phishing emails designed to steal my account information.

No way, Jose. I was born at night, but not last night.

Never click a link in an email sent to you. To use a real world example, my wife and I are planning a vacation to a well known amusement park this summer. We got an offer from said amusement park. But did I click on the link? No way, I have Divine Intellect in my build, fo'shizzle.

I went to said companies website and found the offer there. You just can't be too careful these days.

Of course what's really funny about the WoW phishing email is that they've sent all 3 to my honorshammer gmail account. Well my Warcraft account isn't tied to that email. As far as I know, Blizzard account services doesn't even know nor care it exists. I have a completely different and unpublished email attached to my Blizzard account.

I've been considering posting one of my e-mails to my blog so people can reach me if they want, and it's the one tied to my blogger account, but it's not my personal e-mail that my account is tied to. I find it best to keep that sequestered away where the scammers will never find it. It's just one more way to know that a fake e-mail is fake.
