    Ingame Mail With Acc Info.

    I just recieved an ingame mail with account information.

    I tried one of the four accounts on the list and it worked.

    What should I do?

    Obviously report it to Blizzard and never use it.

    Depending on what may have happened contact blizz. The likelihood of someone giving you their four accounts after quitting are not very high, someone may have even been mailing them to someone with a similar name to yours. Also, was there any other information in the mails other than account info?

    I want to say, log in and steal all their money but really you should contact Blizz and let them know so they can investigate and never log into the accounts lest you get in trouble.

    If you knew you would run the other way.

    Report it to Blizz super fast, when you mentioned IP addresses and secret questions, report it super quick sounds like there could be some serious hacking going on.

    Absolutely forward that on to Blizzard with a ticket, then delete the message. You do not want that sitting around for anyone to get a hold of. You'd be just as upset as those people would be if this was your account on that list.

    Make a note of the details, Phone Blizzard. dont email, or send a ticket as it takes too long, Phone calls are free too.
    sounds and looks like to me someone has had there account/s stolen and the details are being passed to a 3rd party.

    You don't think because I logged onto one, I would also be banned? I'm sure they can check and see that I did nothing but I did log onto it all the same and blizzard aren't very logical.

    Tell them you checked it out but by the looks of the letter....it doesn't seems stolen they know all the secret info such as childhood nick and pets name. Maybe he was just quiting and decided to have a fun last way to go out and send the details to random person. I think you got lucky.

    I don't know what they'll do, but it's akin to finding 4 keys on the ground to four houses and using one of the keys to enter and look around. Even if you didn't touch anything, it's still trespassing. But I don't know what they'd do.

    Burn the evidence throw away the keys and "silence" anyone you've told. O.O .... Nah your fine they'll understand just tell them you were checking to make sure it wasn't a joke and when it worked you just logged off and then reported.

    2 days 20 hours to reply to ticket.

    Can't call as it's 4am here.

    Cool game.

    I would for sure try to contact Blizzard ASAP, someone's account is going to get hacked, and it would be best to notify them for sure. Even if you don't them, if might help in the long run.

    They have priorities...usually mentioning it's hacked or compromised bypasses most of that wait time. I've usually gotten a reply within 20 minutes from a GM.

    In general you maybe could also send an email to those adresses. Tell them what happened and they should check their computers for keyloggers or anything malicious. And have them get in contact with Blizzard too. You might be rewarded ^^

    That's an excellent suggestion. I'd do that.

    Totally odd, no way a hacker would IN-GAME mail Account info like that, hackers and scammers stay to things like skype to avoid documentation by blizzard.
