Once again people are not reading the article. I understand most bloggs are written at a 6th grade level so if you don't meet the requirements have someone explain it to you before you post. Here read it again."they'll then ask for a notarized statement with a picture,"Notice the word "notarized"? That means you have to drag your butt to a notary and have them verify that you are who you say you are and they stamp your license copy and sign it. I would also guess the letter has to come from the notary. Then blizzard can verify you and the notary if they so choose. Now this seems kind of excessive to me but that is what the article says. Could the notary stamp be forged? Sure but now you have another layer of security. I highly doubt that if blizzard followed this practice any account thief would take the time to do all this. I also doubt that blizzard is going to require you to get a copy notarized but again thats what the article says they are doing and I am sure wowinsider does fact checking. Ok wowinsider probably doesn't but lets assume they do.

I don't know where the whole "Notarized" thing comes from. A friend had her account hacked only a few short months ago, and all she had to do was fax in a signed letter from some template and provide a copy of her Military ID.
