Greetings,

If your account is found violating the EULA and Terms of Use, your account can,and will be suspended/closed/or terminated. In order to keep this from occurring, you should immediately verify that you are the account. To verify your identity please visit the following webpage:

Only Account Administration will be able to assist with account retrieval issues. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter, and your continued interest in World of Warcraft.

If you ignore this mail your account can and will be closed permanently.

Once we verify your account, we will reply to your e-mail informing you that we have dropped the investigation.

You may want to check the email address it was sent from. If it's not an @blizzard.com email address, then it is fake.

Generally speaking, they will almost never ask for your log in and other information through email. If you do need to verify any information, do not click links in the email, as they can be scam links, go through the client's own verification.

 

Basically, it is likely this is a fake.

This email looks pretty fake to me. Why would they need to verify thawt it is you reading the email if they're claiming that your account is found trading accounts? Blizzard always has acsess to your  personal information so they wouldn't ever need to verify it. Don't reply to them or click any links from this email, at all.

If you use hotmail, the best thing to do is right click the email, click "view message source" and scan through to see if, under "received" the email is genuinely from @blizzard.com. If it doesn't, it's fake.

ALL those emails are fake.

If you have any doubt, just manually go to your battle.net account and check if everything is in order.

NEVER EVER click on a link that shows up on those emails. NEVER.

Just open your browser, type www.battle.net and login as usual.
