They know about it -- I just received another one today -- I reported it to CS

------------------------------------ Received from SWTOR CS----------------------

" Thank you for informing us about the suspicious mail that you received.

After looking into this, we can confirm that the email you received was not legitimate. We would ask that you do not reply to it, or click on any links that it contains as doing this may compromise the security of your account.........................................


I did not see any sort of official announcement from BW to guard against this so I posted here though I will likely get banned for it. Just hate to see anyone get screwed over in the community.

Just look at the headers that is the same email that comes out of china every day, they just change the words on it.

if you want to parse that email go to spamcop.net and put in the headers and the source of the email. I bet you it comes from china.net.

Yes we all seen that email a thousand times usually they are trying to get my wow account, i get a kick out of it as I dont have one.
The definition of insanity is to continue to do the same thing while expecting different results.

Yeah. I received email for WoW which I have not played in over a year. I logged in with fake account name and expletives for the password.

Two things.

1: Why on earth would you think you'd get banned for this?
2: ... why on earth would you need an official announcement from Bioware about every single specific phishing attempt?

Really bad scam... It's EA or Bioware, not LucasArts who would send you e-mail like that. And yes, it's obvious scam

I wonder where they are getting the emails from? What other SWTOR sites have you guys signed up to?
