A guildmate actually had the "In-game mail from a misspelled guildie" happen to him. Thankfully he was intelligent enough to ask the guild mate beforehand why he was sending him mail with links when he was in ventrilo at the same time, although not logged in game. What I wonder is what attacts that scam to use your username in the first place. Does this mean he has a logger following his account or is it just a passerby who happened to see him around Azeroth?

This stuff happens all the time on my server, but I've only ever been in guilds that make heavy use of vent comments for URLs, so an in-game mail with any sort of link was just a little too obvious. Especially one I got that was to www[dot]hackwow[dot]com (don't want to link there lol).

I got a mail like that today; the link ended in an .exe, so it was quite obvious what it was. The mail got replaced by a mail from Blizzard Customer Support later on, which was unexpected.
