StarCraft 2 phishing scams looking to harvest info


Completely unsurprising news now, as your usual thieves and unsavory types have crawled out from the woodwork to capitalize on the launch of the biggest PC title perhaps ever, StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty. These "people" are sending out phishing emails in the hopes of getting folks' account info, all under the guise of helping you get an activation key.

It comes with the territory: and Blizzard's games are by no means impervious to these scams, nor have they been in the past, but Siliconera's example of one phishing email presents a pretty convincing ruse. Hopefully, in some small way, we can all help fewer people fall prey to this particular trick.
