I've gotten emails like that before. It's just spam meant to scare you into actually giving up your real information.

I thought it might be that. But what account info are they trying to get from me? I don't even have an account. And then I got the Starcraft email.

Wow, um wow. I suggest contacting Blizzard about it. This is quite weird.

Yeah I thought about that, but it's not even my account in the first place, so I have no idea if they will believe me or not. Worth a try, I guess.

EDIT: Also, should I uh, keep the Starcraft Key?

The way I see it, there's something like ten million WoW players. Those are good enough odds to begin trolling the net with a spambot.

Either way, just ignore it. Nothing good will come from it.

I've been getting the World of Warcraft spam for months now. I set up a filter to block anything from any of those re-used addresses.

With the expansion to WoW coming out and WoW accounts being bound to your bnet account scammers are literally growing at an exponential rate, I get around 700 of those a day, pretty sure they just go down lists of E-mails and try hit and miss

Surely even Blizzard isn't stupid enough to think "Vista" is a kind of credit card?
Not a winner anymore.

As a paranoid precaution, you may want to change the password on your email account.
