Post WoW Mail Scam...Use Copied Blizzard Email

Well, I really don't like the idea of scamming peoples accounts, but for the epvp community I suppose I can post this here. This is a real email sent by blizzard that can be used in phishing emails to try to scam accounts. It really is 'the best' way to scam, as it uses a VERY realistic email address and the exact same template that blizzard uses. Sorry its only in English, but I don't speak German. Heres what to do:
  • Ways of finding emails
    1) This method finds people that are part of the WoW selling/buying account community, so it makes much more sense in reference to the letter.
    Quote:
    How to find people: (this works for EU as well)
    -Go to markeedragon.com
    -click search on the top(ish)
    -find the forum that you want to be searching in the list (either WoW account buy/sell EU or US or WoW account trading EU or US) and search for "email"
    -this will come up with a load of threads with "email" in it.
    -More likely than not these are in the original post, with contact information in it, to contact the owner of the account
    -Now that you have your email address for your victim, now its time for the letter
    2) Click the 'Search' button on the top of the epvp navigation bar, and search for something like 'email scam' in the 'WoW Scams' section. This will give you many ways of finding email accounts to attempt to scam. You can certainly develop your own ways of finding emails of people that play WoW, simply BE CREATIVE.

  • Making a Legit Email Address
    This will allow you to make your email address
    Here is the post (Credits to tcxred) on how to do this with a account
    Quote:
    1) Make a new hotmail account, if you are setting up this account to use with the wow scam, First name should be Blizzard, last name Entertainment (or something of that sort). I suppose Account for first and Support for last would work as well. Your windows live ID can be anything you want, the recipient of your email wont be able to see what it is anyway.
    2) After your account is activated, go to your inbox. Then click the New button to begin writing a new email. Than go to where it says From:. There you will notice a drop down menu, open the drop down menu and click add an email address. Than click the gray button that says add an address to send mail from.
    3) This is where you choose the email address the person who receives your scam email will see. Choose whatever you want here, just hope it isn't a real address that someone at blizzard uses (or else it won't work). Than click send verification email.
    4) Go back to your inbox (I'm hoping you all know how to do this ). Now wait for a while and eventually (Don't worry, you probably will) you will receive an email from with the subject Delivery Status Notification (Failure). Open up that up, scroll down to where you see Please click on the link below to claim ownership and activate this e-mail address, then just click the link below that.
    You should see:
    Send and receive mail from other e-mail accounts
    You have successfully verified (whatever you entered)@(wherever.com)!
    5) Click go to inbox again, and click the new button to begin writing a new email. Now go from, and open that drop down menu. Under that drop down menu, you should now see the email address you just added! Select that and now write & send your scam message to the email whose account you want.
  • Email Scam
    -Make an account from hotmail/gmail/something more convincing, that is something related to 'Blizzard support' or 'Blizzard' or 'Blizzard.investigations'. Something that people will believe is legitimate.
    -Send the people emails (Separately, do NOT send them as a big list) and make the subject something official and convincing, and put this image as the only thing in the email:
    Here is a larger size that you can use:

    And here is the smaller one:
    You must register and activate your account in order to view images.
    -Do this to quite a few different email accounts, and you should get some back with the information.
    -A version of the email that is in German can be found here:

    -Do not abuse.
I am currently expanding this post into an easy to read step-by-step guide on how to use this scam


  • New Developments
    -Blizzard has, rather recently, changed the way that they send out emails. Now, they are all done in simple text rather then with pictures. This makes the scam MUCH easier, as it can now be done without the complicated pictures. However, some people likely do not know about this change that Blizzard has made, so sending the picture might still work.

To prevent this action from taking place, we will need to verify your account immediately.

    -The above email was done by Tuxified, I will post another one once I learn more about how Blizzard formats their new emails.

Ok, I am making a new document that is much more believable (The one above has grammar mistakes, but it should still fool people). When I am done I will post it here.

It is the official template yes. It is a bit pixelated (hard to tell anyways) which is why I am making another one that should be much better done and with much better text. This should still work extremely well though.
