We have reported (and shutdown) one WoW scam site back in April, but we’ve found a new one. Watch out for /w like shown above, and don’t go to the link provided. What should you do;
- Take screenshot! (Print Screen)
- Reply to the sender with short statements like; Reported / Scam / Fraud etc. This will (maybe) force them to log off and not /w another player
- Right click on sender’s name and select “Report spam”
- Open ticket to GM and provide him with player’s name and url he was advertising
- Use social sites and forums to inform other players
As said before, whatever you do, do not visit URL provided by scammer!

Update April 6th: Letter from Blizzard
Phew. One World of Warcraft scam site less on the Internet. I know, it doesn’t sound like big deal, but if we saved one poor WoW player from humiliation of being hacked, and process of proving his true identity and account ownership to Blizzard; it was worth it.
Few moments ago, mail from Copyright guys at DOT.TK service arrived (which is lol, cause we’ve sent mails both to Abuse and Copyright dpt. but I guess Internet abuse costs less money on court than copyright infringement), in which they informed us that warcraftservices.tk is no more. Well it is still there, cause they (I’m guessing it was them) have replaced original scam site with some promo and commercial materials. Which is nice for them, cause scammer made all the work inviting people to that page
Anyway, scam site is down, scammer is probably plotting new scam, Blizz is occupied with PTR, and you guys have fun and play safe!
