Account Hacked

Maybe this will be a warning to others, well for anyone else who would be dumb enough to fall for this one :roll:

I got sucked into a phishing scam and my WoW account was compromised. I managed to get it back after ringing Accounts and Billing but my main Eolair has been deleted. I've requested a GM to restore it to around the time I think it was hacked (when I received an email saying my account had been linked to Battle.net). Am still waiting for the restore.

What happened was I was sent an ingame chat message from somone called [Rewards] saying I had won some new Pet reward from the Battle.net promotion and that to claim it I had to log into Battle.net and enter in a pass key (looked like a GUID). Once entered I would receive a unique in-game key that I could then use to claim a Pet from some NPC in Booty Bay in Stranglethorn Vale. Conveniently there was a link to Battle.net in the chat message (ahah!).

I follow this link to Battle.net and enter my login credentials (uhoh) and then the pass key and received a unique in-game key. I think cool, so later I proceed to log back in to get this Pet and find that I can't login because my account has been linked to Battle.net and I have to use a my new Battle.net credentials instead. Around the same time I received an email saying that some f$%^tard called Gola had linked my account to Battle.net and created their own email address and password basically taking over my account. The place where I entered my login details was the phishing site (arena-battle.net), if you go there now there is a message saying the site has now been disabled.

Anyway, live and learn.
