Any player taking time out of their busy WoW schedule to check their email is being warned to be on the lookout for a message purporting to come from Blizzard Entertainment, the company behind the game.
The mailout offers the chance to opt-in to a trial of some new mounts for WoW, but in truth it is designed to phish your account details. Anyone who gets suckered by the scam will find themselves handing over all of their account details to a gang of mysterious miscreants, and worse still, there is no WoW mount trial either.
Security firm Sophos first warned about the scam saying, "Given that online gaming is a billion dollar industry, it is not surprising that scammers are targeting this particular community."
Anyone who still clicks on links in seemingly random emails probably deserves to be phished to within an inch of their credit, but even so we'll remind you that's something you never, ever do.
Regardless of how tempting the mysterious offer might seem.
