The e-mail messages below are scams and, if you receive any, please delete it and do not follow the links in it. The messages try to trick you by stating that your battle.net account is locked and you need to verify that you are the account owner. The messages have a link that seems as if it is pointing to battle.net but instead, points to "us.diablo.com.zh-fck.in". This is a fake website setup to steal your battle.net username and password.
Please continue reading below.
If you receive any e-mail message requesting or asking you to verify, your password, it is a scam. If your account was locked or if you were denied access to your account for any other reasons, you would have gotten a message on the login page.
If you receive any e-mail notification, always go to the website and verify by logging into your account. Do not click on any of the links in the e-mail message.
One of the scam battle.net email messages contains the following website address, which appears as if it points to battle.net but instead, it points to zh-bcy.in.
