I can't log into my account.
The funny fact is, I only have registered Diablo 2 and Warcraft 3 into their server, I never played an online match in any of those games.
Now I can't log into my account. I tried to reset my password but it says me something was wrong (and both mail and password are correct). After a few tries, it says me to contact support to reset my password.

Blizzard, go to hell,please. I can play Diablo 2 and Warcraft 3 on my CDs, but I will never buy another game from you.
I payed for those two games, and now I can't access to my account.
By the way, I removed their link becausre Firefox gives me an alert about it.
Are you sure this isn't a phishing attempt?

"In 3 days after you receiving the e-mail"
"If you had already authenticator your account"

these two lines to me seem to indicate the email did not originate from Blizzard and instead is a phishing email to con you into logging in off a link in the email. and instead of it being blizzard its a spoofed look alike site to steal your account info and passwords.

why would blizzard need your info?
they have it already id presume.

hopefully you didnt follow any links from the email and instead went directly to the blizzard site through normal means, and im misreading the whole scam attempt.

but the fact you cant log in seem to indicate a chance i did not read the situation incorrectly.

Are you sure this isn't some typical phishing email to get your account info or something? The wording in the email seems... odd...

That or this isn't the first time he's considering an email like this as real.

That email you received sounds like a scam. Official emails don't come fragmented with poor language skills. They also don't typically have links or programs to click or run. I would recommend going directly to Blizzard and getting the contact info directly from their official site (don't follow any links to get there) and ask them how to restore your account.

I get emails like this from "blizzard" all the time and I don't have an account with them ;)

I think this is a phishing attempt actually.

I think we have an answer. XD Nice post.
The other day Verizon told me there was a problem with my account. I don't have a cell phone and I live in a dead zone. I think I found the problem. :P

"safety of mass player accounts"?

That whole thing sounds very phishy to me, if you tried using the provided link you should immediatly try to get in touch with Blizzard support if you can't log into your account on Blizzards site. As you only played Diablo 2 and Warcraft 3 you'll probably only have lost their CD keys (I'm not sure if one can extract them from an account), but that's bad enough.
Certainly is phishing. Seen something similar before and I don't even own any Blizzard games. Last one I played was Lost Vikings on the SNES.
Yeah, that email definitely didn't come from Blizzard. An obvious phishing attempt. I hope you didn't click any links in the email?

well if he now can't access......
Check the e-mail header, that should tell you if it's legit.

Dude, go to eu.battle.net and login from there. Change your password. You got scammed.

Next time Firefox alerts you about something, take the time and read it. It's usually right.

It can be spoofed. On OP place, I would forward this email to Blizzard.

Yeah, it does sound like he fell for it. The errors in the phrasing make it obvious that it's a phishing scam, but only if your English skills are excellent. For people who aren't that fluent in the language, it looks very convincing.
