Their latest scam vehicle? Our inherent desire for sparkle ponies. Let's get two things straight off the bat:
- You did not just win a free Celestial Steed mount. That in-game tell is an attempt to steal your account.
- No one just bought you a Celestial Steed mount. That email you got is an attempt to steal your account
Attempt to collect your sparkle pony, and within a few short hours, your entire account will be under someone else's control. If you haven't put an authenticator on your account, the scammers will do it for you, locking you out of your own account and severely hampering your ability to get it back.
More information on the latest scam, what you can do to protect yourself and what to do if you're a victim, all after the break.
