WoW Phishing – By Any Means Necessary!

Another in a series of ever worse attempts to get your WoW account information.

First there were the phishing messages in email that used HTML to at least hide their bogus URLs.

Then there were the messages with the bogus URLs in the open, but at least you only had to click on them.

Now they want you to type in their bogus URL for them with this highly unlikely approach:

That is a bit tough to read, but says:

[Blizzart] whispers: Hi! Congratulations on being presented by The Blizzard of 3500 gold, please log in to receive: [bogus URL]

How generous of The Blizzard!

I guess you have to credit them with trying.  Nice handle there by the way.  Another argument against allowing non-alpha characters in names I suppose.
