A new phishing email scam has been revealed this week which targets people's Blizzard account.
Reddit user JonasBrosSuck alerted fellow users to the phishing email they had received from the suspicious email address "firstname.lastname@example.org." With a quick glance, not paying attention or automatically reading battle.net, the email address seems to be official. However, Blizzard uses the domain extension .net for their battle website.

The "battle.net" link contained in the email reportedly went to a website with a .xyz domain extension instead.
It was later found that the scam email address is displayed as "Blizzard Entertainment" on the outlook web client. Copyright © 2018 Fotisi. All Rights Reserved.
