Account Information Phishing
From time to time, people attempt to get steal account information from other people. Today, a new batch of fake e-mails have been hitting the inboxes of EVE players. The e-mail is as follows:

Please note a few items. First and foremost, always verify the URL that you are logging in to. Never log in to a link supplied in an e-mail. Always log in to the site through the official web page.
Second, notice the number of errors in the text of the e-mail. Although CCP Games and Siminn are Icelandic companies, we do know how to spell and grammar check e-mails before sending any out.
Finally, be cautious of petition e-mails. If you have not submitted a petition, why would the support team be sending you an e-mail with an incident number? If you have recently submitted a petition, always verify that the incident numbers match.
As with any electronic communication, common sense should always apply. If you have any doubts about the validity of an e-mail you have received, feel free to send e-mails to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
