Last night, some of my guildies got in game mails from "me" with links to websites with keyloggers.  The clever little scammers are aparently looking up officers in guilds and creating spoofed accounts using accented letters (ie. Satriss?¬®an - why on earth Blizzard allows use of nonstandard letters has always baffled me), then trying to scam guild members with in game mail and whispers to get them to visit websites where keyloggers await. 

Obviously the best remedy is to never go to a web site that is offered in game, but it's easy to let your guard down when you think you are being referred by a friend.  Be on the lookout, folks!

Thanks for the heads up.

I guess we should take this one step further and just ignore officers completely. Smiley

Maybe you could take it one step back and put a warning in the guild msg for those few that don't read these boards.  Smiley
