I'd love to check out the new features, but I just got an email saying my account's password was changed... without my knowing.A hack is hack, I wouldn't mind but I haven't played WoW in over a month and I don't even have WoW installed on my current laptop nor have I used any one battle.net's online services...Oh well, ticket submited, the new site sounds promising.

The "your password was changed" e-mail is a pretty common phishing scheme. Check the header and see if it was mailed through Hotmail (they ALL seem to be mailed through Hotmail) before getting too worried.

Mouseover any links in the email, it's pretty easy to tell if the site is legit when you do that

Indeed, but you see my password WAS changed. I went to the official site to log in, not clicking on the link given in the email.But like I say, I've submitted a support ticket now as has my girlfriend in game, as our guild bank on our "chat channel with a bank" guild, that should get the items & money back at least.

Regarding the fishing scams, most of the ones I've gotten in the mail in the last 2 months seem to originate from the sohu( dot )com domain.Don't forget to check originals, show sender, etc…
